SpotPass Downloadable Content (SpotPass DLC) is a new feature in Nintendogs + Cats that allows you to add items to the game. This feature is similar to WiiConnect24 on the Wii. One needs to be connected to the internet for SpotPass DLC neighbors and also for Nintendogs + Cats items from the DLC neighbor's pet. This feature was only available in North America and Japan.

When your 3DS is connected to the Internet, it will automatically check Nintendo's servers for DLC for all games and DLC-receiving applications that you have. It will often notify you by placing a blue spot on the picture of your inserted Nintendogs + Cats game and you must check your journal in-game and tap the yellow present box sticker for a SpotPass DLC neighbor. In case your game is not inserted, the 3DS also places a blue spot on the Notifications button on the system's start-up menu.

Sometimes, if you talk to a DLC neighbor while on a walk, he might give you a present. It is also possible for their dog breed to be added to the list of available dogs in the kennel if DLC neighbor is the very first neighbor met and spoken to with this ability during a walk. If multiple dogs have been SpotPassed and can be added to your kennel-- your DLC neighbor can still be available to meet another day during a walk as long as their entry is still listed in your journal (2 weeks). The player must not have the breed unlocked at that time in order for a breed to be unlocked via SpotPass.
