KleptoDogs Beginner’s Guide: Tips, Cheats & Strategies to Keep Your Dogs Happy

Following the massive success of KleptoCats, it is time for canine lovers to have their hearts stolen. KleptoDogs is a quirky little game from HyperBeard Games where you collect dogs, take care of them, keep them happy, and in return, they steal stuff for you. It’s the perfect crime because no one would ever go after puppy thieves. Available on Android and iOS, this game will have you collecting pugs, corgis, beagles, chihuahuas, and some other breeds that may or may not exist in real life. Make sure you feed all of them regularly and play with them often. This will raise their happiness levels, motivating them to steal more stuff on your behalf. Of course, playing criminal mastermind with a bunch of puppies is not always easy. The more dogs you have, the more you will have to do to keep everyone happy. It’s a good thing you can always rely on our KleptoDogs cheats, tips and strategies for some much-needed help!

1. Complete The Tutorial

The game is pretty easy to understand, but you get a tutorial nonetheless. Don’t get impatient and just follow whatever the tutorial tells you to do. Once you complete everything, you will be handsomely rewarded with free Gems. Since Gems can be hard to obtain for free in this game, you should take advantage of every chance to earn them.

2. Watch That Mood Meter

A puppy’s mood meter determines how successful his heist will be. Make sure you keep it at 100%. Doing so will almost guarantee that he will bring you a new item. Don’t worry because it does not take a lot to keep your puppy happy. You just need to give him a treat, a bath, and a hug to get his mood to 100%. When you think about it, isn’t that what all doggies want? Just take good care of your pup and he will steal the moon for you.

3. Dig For Coins

There are three minigames available for you to play while your dog is out stealing stuff. While you are free to try out the jumping and the catching game, the best way to earn coins is through the digging game. You just need to wait until you see sparkles on the ground then tap on that location to dig up either food or coins. If you dig up 6 food items, you will get one coin. While that does not seem like much, the sparkles actually appear quickly, giving you a lot of chances to dig. This makes the digging game faster than the other two options.

4. Buy Gems With Coins

Gems are the premium currency of KleptoDogs. You need gems in order to unlock more dogs. The game’s gacha system gives you a random dog for 8 Gems. If you are a free player, you might find that Gems are very hard to come by. Once in a while, one of your pups will bring home a Gem on top of whatever item they stole, but don’t depend on it too much. The best way to earn more Gems in this game is to earn a whole lot of coins. You can convert 250 coins into one Gem. Since you can earn coins quickly by playing often, it will be easier for you to get Gems in this process. Whatever you do, do not spend your Gems on anything other than acquiring new dogs!

5. Get The Daily Rewards

The game has a daily login reward where you can earn dogs, coins, and more. You will receive a normal box for simply logging into the game. You also have the option to watch a video advertisement to upgrade it to a premium box. Needless to say, you should agree to that ad offer in order to maximize your daily rewards.

6. Before You Go Outfit Shopping

The game has a Boutique where you can buy cute outfits for your dogs. While this can definitely be fun, it is a blackhole for money, both coins and Gems. Before you decide to go outfit shopping for your little pets, make sure you are satisfied with the number of dogs that you have. The clothes are very expensive and they have no impact on gameplay at all. They don’t even do anything to improve your dog’s mood. That means you will be delaying your progress for the sake of aesthetics. Think carefully before you buy anything.

7. Watch Ads For More Coins

Since you need to get your hands on as many coins as you can, it would be good for you to spend some time watching ads. This is the alternative to playing minigames while your dog is away. While it is definitely a lot less fun than playing minigames, you stand to earn a whole lot more through this option. Just go to the Options menu and watch as many ads as you can before your dog gets back. Each ad is worth 50 coins, so you just need to watch five of them to get one Gem.

8. Complete Offers For Gems

If you have some free time, you can head into the offers menu. This will show you a few things you can do to earn Gems for free. The number of Gems you earn depends on the offer you complete. Keep in mind, however, that some offers may require transactions, so pay close attention if you don’t want to accidentally spend money.

9. Take Photos Of New Items

Whenever your dog takes home a new item, you will see a share icon at the top left corner of the window. Tapping on it will prompt you to share a screenshot of the new item on any of your social media apps. Don’t worry because you don’t actually have to do it. Just tap on the icon then tap on Cancel and you will still earn extra coins without flooding your Facebook wall with in-game screenshots.

10. Unlock The Kitchen

As you progress in the game, you will eventually be able to unlock the Kitchen. This is a second location that you can access through the room icon on the top left of the screen. You can also buy it for 26 Gems. A second room means you will be able to send out another dog to steal stuff for you. You can have more than two dogs, but you can only assign one dog per room to interact with. The others will most likely just appear as cameos from time to time. Having two dogs sent out will double the items you get, so open up that Kitchen as soon as you can!

11. Follow HyperBeard In Social Media For Secret Codes

HyperBeard Games is known for giving out secret codes that you can use to acquire rewards for their games. If you have time, try to follow their social media account and hopefully you will be able to come across one of their codes. Once you have a code, go to the Settings menu and tap on the safe icon. Enter the code and tap on the paw print to claim your reward! Don’t forget to tap on the Facebook and Twitter icons on the options menu as well. Doing so will reward you with one Gem each.

It is time to collect cute dogs and steal some valuable items in KleptoDogs! Hopefully, our KleptoDogs beginner’s guide will get you started on the right path. If you know additional tips or tricks for the game, be sure to let us know below in the comment section!
