Trainer Points are a measurement of the player's capability and experience as a dog trainer in Nintendogs. These points are used to measure the player's rank as a trainer, unlock new breeds and interiors, unlock certain items in the local store, and allows them to teach advanced tricks to their dogs. Trainer Points unlock certain items, such as Dog Breeds and new houses in the Interior Decorator.

In Nintendogs + Cats, the Trainer Points have been renamed Owner Points and can be seen in the Journal.
