My! My! Welcome!
― Digby, upon being talked to by the player.

Digby (ケント, Kento?) is a dog who is in charge of the Happy Home Showcase in New Leaf, and is the younger twin brother of Isabelle. He can be seen standing at the Showcase's entrance all day long.

In order to get into the Showcase, the player must first speak with him. Once inside, the player may visit the houses of other players they have met through StreetPass.

In Happy Home Designer, he is a normal staff member at Nook's Homes. His job is to help the player with rebuilding facilities they have already built. This feature is unlocked after upgrading the school with Isabelle.

In Pocket Camp, he returns to work at the Happy Home Academy, but instead of being the gatekeeper of the Happy Home Showcase, he is one of the Happy Homeroom Judges.


Digby has a relaxed personality much like his sister, Isabelle. He is patient and very straight-forward, although he sometimes feels concerned about his job being the gate guard of the Happy Home Showcase area. He also gets along with his sister Isabelle, as she does also.


Digby is mostly brown in coloration. He wears a white shirt under his red suit coat, accompanied with a yellow tie and blue pants. On rainy or snowy days, he will wear a yellow raincoat and red boots. He resembles Isabelle in his features; he has the same eyes, but his white patch is seen running up the middle of his face and he has a tuft of hair sticking out on the top of his head. He also has six pink freckles, with three on each cheek.

In New Leaf

In New Leaf, he stands on Main Street outside the Happy Home Academy. When it's rainy, he wears his yellow raincoat. The player may talk to him, which grants access to the Happy Home Showcase, in which they can visit the homes of other players using the Nintendo 3DS's StreetPass feature.

In Happy Home Designer

Digby also appears in Happy Home Designer, where he plays as the player's co-worker. Digby's job is to work with all of the paperwork related to new facility buildings that are added to the town, and they will usually see him at the end of the day finishing up some of his work. He doesn't interact with the player much, though he is an important character. After designing enough facilities, Digby will give the player the option to rebuild any facilities that they already have, and takes over instead of Isabelle during remodeling days.

In amiibo Festival

Digby is a playable character in amiibo Festival, available when the Digby amiibo is scanned on the Wii U. Sometimes when the player playing as Digby lands on an event square in the Amiibo Festival Board Game mode, a random event specifically related to Digby may appear.

Digby has 6 unlockable costumes for the game, unlocked through leveling up the Digby amiibo:

  • Nook's Homes employee (Level 1)

  • Nook's Homes logo T-shirt (Level 3)

  • Digby's Japanese name may be a pun on the on'yomi of the kanji for dog ( inu?), ken (ケン?).
  • The Spanish name of Digby is Candrés, a pun between "Can", as another form of "Dog" in Spanish (from Canis, meaning "Dog" in latin) and "Andrés".
  • Digby's English name may be a reference to the word "Dig", referencing that dogs sometimes dig holes.
  • It's impossible to get in or out of the Happy Home Showcase without Digby as the player cannot sneak past him.
  • If the player attempts to walk past Digby when leaving the Happy Home Showcase, he will strike up conversation with the player regarding them leaving.
  • If Digby reveals one of his coffee preferences at the cafe, he will also mention Isabelle's; however, it will not be highlighted like other coffee preference dialogues.
  • Digby has the voice of a jock villager.
  • In Happy Home Designer, Lottie is shown to have a huge crush on Digby. He seems oblivious to this, though.
  • When speaking to Digby early in Happy Home Designer, he mentions that his work is really stressful, but he is dedicated to getting it done so he doesn't let anyone down.
  • If you scan his amiibo and design a house for him, the next time you visit, Lottie will also be there and he will say they are on a date.
  • Though not currently present, Isabelle mentions him (albeit not by name) during her morning announcements in New Horizons.
