The Interior Decorator in Nintendogs

The Interior Decorator (Japanese: リフォームショップ/インテリアショップ Rifōmushoppu (DS)/Interiashoppu (3DS)) 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 interior design as the default house style. For example, Dachshund and Friends starts out with the Ranch House, making it free for that version. 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.

Once the player buys a house, they cannot enter the Interior Decorator again until the house remodeling is finished, which can take one to two real days. If a player has bought a certain house in the past and wants to change their house back to that style, they can do so for free.

There is 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.

Nintendogs + Cats

Modo Home

In Nintendogs + Cats, the Interior Decorator is called Modo Home. In addition to selling houses, the Interior Decorator also sells furniture. Cody (NTSC) / Thomas (PAL) is the clerk. There is a total of 9 houses that can be bought.

Unlike the previous game, real days do not have to elapse for the house to be remodeled, and players can’t get a previous house style back for free anymore even if they've bought it before.
