How to Win as Reindog

Reindog is one of the game's Support class fighters, meaning his focus is on protecting his teammate. Several of his moves play into this, but he's not short of viable offensive options too.

His Neutral Special creates a tether between you and your ally, and if you press the input again, they will zip back to your location. This means if your teammate is playing off the side of the arena, you can whip them back to safety if they get too close to the ringout zone. The tether itself also damages enemies who get in its path, so it's a great ability to keep in mind.

Reindog's Neutral Attack is very slow to charge, but can be very strong if you manage to build it up. Actually, a general tip is that he's a fairly slow but potentially powerful character, with several moves that take a sec to charge, but pay off with good damage.

The fireball is another good example, and something you should be using when you can. Hitting the ground will leave some fire behind, which will chip away at enemies who pass through. Oh, and this fire also lights up any allied Projectiles, adding some extra punch as they fly.
