      Good game for those still learning to read

      All these games SHOULD tell you how much reading is involved and it's a shame they don't! This game is very entertaining for my 6 yr old girl who is in the first grade. A bit on the simple side but she has hours into it and enjoys it a great deal. In the game, you roam around a puppy-world. look for things, and talk to other dogs. You earn friendship points and doggy-dollars by being nice & choosing to help other dogs with their needs. You can visit doggy stores and use the dollars to dress your pet. You can visit the doggy school and teach your pet tricks by using stylus movements on the screen. You can play multiple pets as well. "Doggy-world" isn't really big enough to entertain forever, but again, with at least 10 hours game play my daughter still seems interested.

      My kids LOVE this game. Only problem is that it freezes their game system. so much that you have to take the batteries out to reset it. This occurs on both our Leapster GS and LeapPad2, so I knew it was the game that was the issue, not the gaming system. I contacted Leap Frog Customer Service and spoke to an extremely friendly and helpful associate. After some research, she told me that they have had several complaints about this game freezing and noted that this game was glitchy. She told me that if she sent another Pet Pals 2, that it may freeze our game systems again. Instead, she offered to send me my choice of any other game (cartridge or downloadable) that was comparable in price. So, I opted for another game. I was really bummed, because my kids love this game. However, I thought it was great that I was sent a new game within just a few days of my phone call. Also, this was a gift from Christmas, so I did not have the receipt and was calling about a month or two after we had been playing it awhile. Note that we do have a friend who has this same game and plays it on her Leap Pad (1st edition) and has no problems. So, I am not sure why some work and some don't. But, my advice is to call Leap Frog if yours freezes up. Hopefully this problem will be fixed soon. It's a really cute game.

          This game freezes my son's leapster gs & leappad everytime they play w/ it. Can't even turn off the power button & have to pop out a battery for it to power back on. Been a leapfrog fan x10 yrs, this is the first time disappointed w/ their product. Hoping they will fix this soon.

          It's a really cute game. It worked perfectly on my sons Leapster Explorer, when my daughter got a Leappad 2 for Christmas, my son let her have the game. She loved playing it. but it would freeze on her every 10 or 15 minutes! The power button wouldn't even turn it off. I had to pop the battery pack out to turn it off. Needless to say we got rid of the game because I was afraid that long term use might effect the system.

          Fun game, but no longer a challenge.

          This was one of the first games my daughter had for the leapster explorer. She really enjoys it and still plays it quite often. Only downside is that it seems to be getting too easy for her now, really is no longer a challenge.

              My child enjoys this game however it freezes constantly requiring us to remove the skin and pull a battery to reset the leappad 2 system itself because nothing works to reset but that. I would return the game but its a lot of hassle so I guess we'll just deal with it. But he does enjoy playing with his two dogs.

                  My 7 year old really wanted this game, in spite of being geared towards a younger age group. Not much in the way of education, though it could be useful for a child getting ready to get a dog, to give them an idea of the care that goes into having a pet. My son has fun with it, but it's definitely geared towards younger kids.

                      I have a 4yr old and a 7yr old both of them just love this game. This game is entertaining enough that my 7yr old doesn't get bored, but simple enough that my 4yr old doesn't needs help to play it!

                          My son had the first pet pals for the leapster & loved it so he immediately wanted pet pals 2 when he got the Leap pad. I can barely get him to put it down to eat! Lol. He's having fun & learning. What more can I ask for?!

                                  My preschooler daughter loves this game! She can do it all by herself. It is similar to Pet Pad that comes with the LeapPad but has more games and options.
