Press Release

In Dog Park: New Tricks, business is booming! There are more dogs to walk - including rescues - more places in the park to explore, and new specialist trainers. Players are still trying to become the most accomplished walkers by earning the best reputation, but now they have more layers of strategy to explore. This expansion also adds a fifth player, which can be played with or without New Tricks.

"We’re so excited to be expanding the world of Dog Park with not only more dogs, but more strategic choices for players," said Lead Designer and Birdwood Games co-founder, Lottie Hazell. "This expansion adds some gloriously crunchy decision-making processes for the more experienced gamer, without losing Dog Park's intuitive play-style that has encouraged so many new players to the table."

"New Tricks will be designed and printed to the same high quality that Dog Park players have come to expect from us at Birdwood Games," said Jack Hazell, designer and co-founder. "Holly Exley has done a superb job at illustrating the new multi-breed dogs and the team at Quillsilver Studio have added their usual sparkle with their sophisticated graphic design, product design, and development."
