So, I just wanted to make a quick guide to Colettes 'Dog lover' title, especially since some of the dogs are missable so if you get to a certain point in the game some dogs will no longer be namable and you will miss the title.
- I didn't take the screenshots in order, as there are points where you don't have Colette in the party, and other times where I went on a different (hard) route rather than the generic route one usually goes
- You have to have Colette as your on screen character when speaking to the dog to name it. Just go to the menu, move down until you have the cursor on Colette, and press 'A' so the little red flag in on the top corner, that indicates she's the on screen character.
- It is much easier to go dog hunting the frist time you go to an area, so if you go into a town, look for the dog(s) before moving the story along (in case you're nearing a 'point of no return').
This dog is where Raine and Genis' house is. I don't know off hand if you can get it in the beginning, but I got it late in the game after you return.
Cammy is sitting next to a lady just before heading to the fortune tellers hut. You really have to pass right by her.
Pookie isn't hard to miss, he's right as you enter the village.
Boo is right outside the Inn, probably hoping to get a room as well.
So poor Rockie is sitting by the cliff on the way up to the dragon rides... I wonder why..
Hal is in the middle of the first part of town, next to the item stand.
Murry us in the second half of the town, not hard to miss.. if you've gone up the stairs, you've gone too far.
House of Salvation
There are a number of Houses of Salvation in Sylvarant. Some of these have dogs...
Caramel is in the House of Salvation between Hakonesia Peak and palmacosta.
Kitty is in the area of the House of Salvation between Iselia and Triet.
Monmon is in the area of the House of Salvation just outside of Asgard.
Yet another missable area, I'd say this is a little more lenient, but you may still not want to push your luck and get them asap.
In the area with the government building, school and church.
Enjoying the sea breeze, Teddy is located in the market area you'll pass through on your first time in Palmacosta.
The Thoda Area (Missable)
I'm smushing Thoda dock and geyser together. Each area has 1 dog.
Thoda Dock While Binky isn't missable, after you do your business at the geyser you might well forget about this area.
Geyser So, as far as I know, Bob is Missable after events late game, so get him while you're there on other tasks!
So! Here's a late game pup! While not necessarily missable, he won't show up the first time you visit. Instead, he appears after the first few donations! (not saying anything else as there's a reason for it).
Chibi is in the slums of Meltokio (ground level, far right past the institute). When you get there he's in the middle level.
Pudding must be a pampered pup! Because he is located in the aristocratic section to the east of the castle where Zelos' manor is.
This happy pup is in the main area where the library and the inn are.
Seeing as this is a university city, I bet he's here to learn a thing or two along with his friend there. He's just in front of the academy entrance.
Here's one of the two missable areas to get dogs in, of which there are 2. Be sure to get them on your first visit to Ozette, just in case.
Kalcy is located in the main area that you'll arrive in.
Sammy is on the upper level of the city, just go up the vine roads until you see him and the item shop.
I wonder if Tiggy was named after Tiga~ he helps the item vendor out, and is hard to miss.
On the screen that houses the doctors office, there's a kid selling food, Penny is mooching off that food.
There to greet you, Poochi is right near the Inn as soon as you enter the town.
Lulu is found just after the hotel, at the base of the path to the grave.
Kenny can only be found outside the casino, so sleep at the hotel, choose to go out at night, and take the tram to the casino.
Along with Exire, Heimdall would likely be one of the last places you'll visit, and so if you've been naming dogs on your journey these should be among the last.
So for Coco, you have to take a little path underneath the Inn to get past the fence.
Okay, so Cookie is a little hidden. You have to go under the elders house, and across the plank of wood to get behind the regular house where there is both a dog and a woman.
So, Exire can only be accessed later in the game, and will likely be one of the last places you'll go. You can only get there via the rheards.
So, Chuchu is kind of out of the way but not hard to miss. Just cover all ways and you should run into him.
Simon is plain as day, located near one of the landing pads.
That's it! Colette should talk to herself about getting dogs after the journey, and get the title.
Now, this is a guide about dogs.. so here's a screenshot of cats!!
