Has anyone encountered voice recognition problems with Nintendogs?  Specifically, with higher pitched voices?  A few days ago, my younger son kept trying to name his dog, and it would say something like "it heard you", but would just keep telling him to say the dog's name again and again.  He then had his older brother try, and in no time the dog recognized the name.  Just now, my girlfriend tried naming a new dog, and the same thing happened.  I started saying the name of the dog, and in three tries the dog recognized the name.  When she tried teaching the dog to sit, it kept asking her to repeat the steps.  When I tried teaching the dog to sit, he figured it out in just a few tries.

I think it also depends on your dog's personality.  I know mine can hear me, but has forgotten how to sit and lie down so far...

I have a deep voice and keep having problems.  I can't tell if it is supposed to goof up commands sometimes or not.  It seems like I tell it to do one thing and it does something else.  Like I say "Lie Down" and it sticks its paw up to shake.  THose two phrases don't sound anything alike.  Hopefully, it is just simulating that the dog doesn't always get it perfect.  I wish I knew for sure, though.

adjust the mike sensitivity, make sure it's the exact enunciation each time, keep you mouth the same distance from the mike as well. Listen to  yourself when it plays back so you can hear any differences.

I had trouble because I named my first dog wumpus, and it didn't really stick too well. Named the next dog Mug and I have no issues with getting her attention.

I also keep commands super simple, Sit, Lay, Paw, Roll, Chase. Simpler the better.

Yeah, I did all that.  It sounds clear on the playback.  For instance, Sit and Shake kept getting confused by the dog.  I finally had to change sit to sit down.  I keep wasting a lot of my training time having to retrain to try to get the dog to stop confusing things.

Also, the longer and more distinct the names/commands the better as well.  I also had to change sit/shake/spin to stuff like "on your butt dog" etc.

You can change any commands? Like, can you say "POOP" where POOP=sit, and the dog'll understand it as sit?

Yeah.  Basically you can come up with any phrase you want to associate with the action the puppy has performed.  FOr instance, you can associate "Chew on your baby, [puppy name]" with the sit action.
