The Interior Decorator is a real estate service that sells several house makeovers (and furniture in Nintendogs + Cats) and can be accessed from the Shop menu.
The Interior Decorator can be accessed by pressing the bottom left button on the "Go out" screen.
Each version of Nintendogs starts with one of these houses as the default house. Like for example, Dachshund and Friends starts out with the Ranch House, making it free for that versions as would any other house that had been previously purchased. The default houses from other versions can be unlocked through Trainer Points or by doing Bark Mode with a player who has that version of the game.
Also, once the player buys the house, they cannot enter the Interior Decorator again until the house remodelling is finished, which can take one to two real-time days.
There are a total of nine (eight in the Japanese version) house models in Nintendogs. The most expensive is Outer Space and the cheapest is the Designer Condo.
