Ubisoft to launch dog coaching game

This is Sugar, the official dog of the bit-tech.net offices and reviewer of all dog-based games.

Ubisoft has announced that it will be launching a new dog coaching game on the PC and DS based around the work of Cesar Milan, a prominent lecturer in the US and host of The Dog Whisperer TV show. Apparently.

My Dog Coach: Understand Your Dog with Cesar Millan will launch on the PC and Nintendo DS later this quarter and will prominently feature Cesar Millan, as well as theories taught in his books and seminars.

Cesar's approach places an emphasis on understanding dogs and how they behave in the wild, then replicating some of the pack mentality that dogs exhibit and exploiting it within the home by using rewards and punishments effectively.

The PC and DS game will present forty of the most common dog problems and instruct users on how to deal with them correctly.

Cesar says that the key to solving these issues is simple; "Exercise, discipline, and affection... in that order."

Honestly, we can perhaps see a game like this appealing to the casual DS crowd, but whether it will work so well for a PC crowd is a different matter - though maybe we'll give it a review and test the process out on Sugar, the official bit-tech.net dog.

Do you have a dog, or are you more of a cat person? Can you make a cool LOLDog out of this picture? Answer these questions and more, in the forums.

i once screwed my windows 98 install when i didn't have enough space for the game Pets. I didn't know what a PEECEE was back then. Maybe this will appeal to animal fans like Sims appeals to people who like to control others.

I think Sugar and my lil dog have been separated at birth...

... his name is Lucky. As it was lucky we found him (he was dumped on the Bromyard Downs) and the Dog Warden couldn't get him so the only option was to destroy him. Again, it was lucky that my Mum was able to 'catch' him, it was more that he decided to come and live with us.

Fuggin' awesome lil dog!

I don't know why you're so surprised - do you not remember those pictures of Harry on the bull thingy? That look on his face wasn't panic, it was ecstasy :D

Back on topic, this game'll probably be bought by the same kind of people who bought Petz for their DS or the Sims for their PC - not butch, hardcore gamers like us...

Would it be a bad thing to admit I helped beta test this for them? :)

OK, yeah, a TV program is alright, and Cesar Milan is a good dog trainer. But a game? Erm...no.

Dogs generally don't seem to pose as much as cats. plus Dogs don't tend to lie on various things like pc cases, in boxes etc anywhere as much.
