Karma is points you collect to be able to enter Visdomsberget, in order to rise in rank. To get karma, you can sniff yourself or others. Eventually, as you rise in rank, your dog will learn new abilites you can use to collect karma easier.
You can only collect a maximum of 50 karmapoints per day.
Visdomsberget, roughly translated to The mountain of Wisdom, can be found north in the park, in the room called Nordpoten. In Visdomsberget, you’ll have to answer the given questions correctly in order to rise in rank. If you pick the wrong answer, you’ll lose the karma-points you paid to enter, without any other side effects.
You need a minimum of 15 karmapoints in order to enter.
Through entering Visdomsberget, your dog will eventually reach a new rank. Each rank has its own abilities, which you will be able to use throughout your dog's life. With each rank, the number of questions you need to answer will increase. You can keep an eye on your karma-bar to see how long you have left before reaching the next rank.
When you make a new dog, it will be born into a random pack. There are 6 different packs, and each of them has its own cave, with a unique shop. You only have access to your pack’s cave.

If your dog is rewarded in the sniffing profile by another user, you will be awarded 1 life-point, and this can exceed 60 points while you are inactive, but it will reset the day you log in if you have exceeded 60 life-points.

The shops are updated sporadically. They do NOT update on a schedule.
This means that you can never know:
Each hat’s price can change.
The Gladiator hat costs 3000 bones today. However, it is unknown if the same Gladiator will reappear in a different shop in, say, 1 year for 5000 bones.
Some hats will be contest rewards, and these hats might appear in a shop after, for example, 2 months – or perhaps they might never be sold again? You will never know.
The reason behind this system is that we wish for every player to have an equal chance of purchasing desirable items. Perhaps you might lack the funds at the correct time? You will then have to trade or otherwise hope that the hat will reappear later.
