When I browsed through the manual I saw that you can train your dog. But my problem is when i go near my dog the only reaction command that appears is HOLD which is the A button, while it says in the manual that the Y button is the "train" command ( which does not appear when I come near my dog). Is there something wrong? Please help me! And another thing if I don't give my dog some food will it die? Thanks :D

PS: My dog is the dog w/ pointy ears.
