Regeneration of Your Original VKC Dogs: Don't Do it! 

This is Dogland's Official advice concerning Regeneration of older VKC dogs. We recommend only updating and NEVER "upgrading" or "regenerating" (or other terms that may be used later).
You can "UPDATE" your dogs safely enough, but for your own benefit, avoid being convinced to "REGENERATE" your dogs.

They will try to tell you that the dogs look better (which they may except under close scrutiny). 

Notice The unusual paws, and the way the front legs bend backwards.The bone in this dogs mouth is part of the dog... it vanishes when dog is told to drop it. No more physical toys for these pups!
Notice The unusual paws, and the way the front legs bend backwards.The bone in this dogs mouth is part of the dog... it vanishes when dog is told to drop it. No more physical toys for these pups!
The new dogs you receive in return are non transferable, and can not use the same tools and toys. The original VKC dogs can "TAKE" a physical object.. or toy you make for them, by adding a simple "toy" script. The regenerated dogs can not do this, nor can they be found with the free tools like our regional dog caller (brings a dog directly to you from ANYWHERE in region) and our regionwide dog finder (locates and teleports you to a dog regardless of distance in same region).
Dogland's official advice is to not fall for the hype... and keep your original VKC dogs as they are!

You can expect rebutal/argument concerning the validity of this advice. Contact Vitolo Rossini with any questions. 

UPDATES

We heard your comments, and made note of your requests.

I am happy to say we were able to add all of your suggestions in our first update!

Dogland Dogs now have "Range" setting on the menu, improved "pet" animations, as well as an Auto-Update feature. To get an updated dog, bring your dog to Dogland, and show your dogs to any staff member. You will be given replacement dogs!

All future updates will be done automatically.

            NEW RELEASE!

50 pound American Bulldog "Buster" has made it to SL

It's been a long time coming!
 
When I came to SL I brought all that was important to me in RL with me. My wedding band was my first item back in the begining. I then brought my RL clothing, including my exact cucifix! My RL tattoo was next on the list. I finally brought photos of my loved ones, and I sculpted a duplicate of my RL Fedora passed down by my Uncle.
Long ago my wife said it would be nice if I could recreate our RL  Service Dog Buster. It would be nice I thought to have my RL service dog here. Back then I did not know how to do what I can now, and thought this a faraway dream.
Dogland Dog's Rhoda Menu Pups will release "Buster" by Easter.
Buster good friend, welcome aboard!

One is knee high and is a fully scripted Rhoda Menu Pet!. He is copiable, and is a ton of fun. The shoulder bunny you see is fully animated. This is no limited offer, the shoulder bunny is copiable, and transferable, so you can set the perms as you like, and gift accordingly! The box was at Vitolo's Workshop

                 VKC PRICE STRUCTURE CHANGES

On December 1st, The VKC creator decided to stop the practice of allowing VKC Dogs prices to fluctuate. While some owners of dogs find this distressing, most find this new policy of consistency in pricing to be a positive step.

He has made the prices of all of his original prim based dogs 1800 L$, and all of the newer sculpt based dogs are 4800 L$. Those that had bought Rottweilers and Chows and Dobermans in the past paid 3000-5000 L$. The owners of these breeds pups have been devalued. The Sculpt based dogs were also 3000 to 5000, and the Dog Maker has stabilized that cost to 4800 L$.  Some dogs have gone down in cost, some have gone higher. 

This is good news for Dogland Visitors! We still buy back any dogs at the highest rates in SL. We also now can promise visitors that any Fully Trained VKC dog they find for relocation at Dogland will cost under 1800 or under 4800 depending on the breed!

You are assured a consistent buy back rate, and you know what the price ceiling is when looking for a dog!

Come visit us at Dogland Park, to find the best dog/pet supplies in world, and to find the best deals on almost every make of SL dog. Our Fully Trained relocated VKC Dogs are available at discounted costs daily.   (Post by Dog Seesaw)

              DOG GAMES!

The Rhoda Menu Pups have  a "control" feature that allows you to steer your dog using your keyboards arrows.
The dogs can push physical objects like balls. Think of the possibilities!
Since the dogs are physical, they can be fun and challenging when you steer them through a course of obstacles.
You can invent your own ramps, and tubes, and try  to steer your dogs around through each of them.
We will soon have an official Obstacle Course set up uniquely designed for your Rhoda Menu Pups.
Dog owners are encouraged to submit unusual ideas, obstacles, and challenges to Vitolo Rossini. If your ideas or creations are used, your name will appear on the Dogland Dogs website- http://doglanddogs.yolasite.com
The first Dog Owner that has built obstacles and challenges that were GREAT was Caylynn Adored. She has impressed me with her ideas, creations, and the skill she demonstrated while controlling her pug and finding fun ways to love her dog!

       Last Important Update to VKC Dogs

After 2011 no further updates were considered urgent by us for your Original VKC dogs.

Here are the updated features:

If you issue the "stay" command incorrectly, dog will explain the right way to you

The "name" and "rename" commands will not accept names of just one character. 

The dogs can no longer be petted when on "heel." 

The water command can now be followed by other commands

Dog will bounce off world less

Two new commands for finer control over stay and settle:

release stay will release stay but keep settle;

release settle will release settle but keep stay;

roam still will release both stay and settle.

If you have changed dogs heel position, you can revert to default with the command "fido position -1 -1".

*"init" . you can teach a trick called "init". Init is a trick that lets the dog comply with the commands as soon as he is rezzed. If you don't want the dog to have his collar, and want him to avoid water, you could say, "fido learn init tint -2 water avoid".  To use "greet-quiet" in the "init" trick, make it the last command in the chain. The dog will exclude any commands after "greet-quiet."

You can go to the clinic and update your dogs to have the above features.
