Hi everyone I am back after taking an extremely long break from the game. I have no idea how to play the game anymore. I was wondering if there is some sort of mentoring program on here so I can learn how to play again. Thanks a lot.

Hi there! I too came back just recently after being away since 2010 (first started in 2006).

It really hasn't been tough at all to get back into the swing of things! One thing that was new for me is puppies-- they used to have to hit 10 days before their stats settled, now they are settled at birth.

Good luck! It's great to have more players!

Thank you. I am still trying to figure out what breed to work with. So I'm still looking around.

Welcome back!

I'm not sure how long you've been gone, but check the judges profiles - some of them prefer owner-handled dogs.

For standard players set your salary to all sessions, then sell the excess every night.
There is a log in bonus which after a week or so of logging in every day will give you an extra $50 dollars a day.

In a basic kennel, When offering on puppies you want to show, ask the breeder to put them on the best food before they send them to you as basic rations available are not good enough to get them in the ring quickly.

What sort of breed are you looking for? Good luck!

I've been gone at least 5 years. Probably closer to 7 though. I'll go have a look at the judges list now. Thanks for the advice.

Is standard the basic account? If so how do I go and change that? And for the log in bonus do I have to log out and in again? Because right now I have it on the stay logged in. As for breed I was thinking about the Akita or maybe German shepherd. Thanks for all the help.

"Standard" refers to a single subscribed (paid) account.

"Standard" is synonymous to "Pemium".

A "Basic" is the free account but it has limitations.

A "Family" subscription gives you 5 "Standard" accounts and these will show as "Family".

I don't think 'the stay logged in' will really affect the log in bonus although it might, not sure. The Bonus starts at $5 and increases by $5 each day to a maximum of $50. If you miss one day it goes back to $5.

No it doesn't affect log in bonuses. Because you still are 'logging in'to the site after the midnight.

I think I've decided to go with the Akita right now. Just to find a good one for showing.
