    This achievement is rewarded - obviously - for getting all the others.

    NOTE: This achievement seems, like some others too, a bit glitchy. If it doesn't pop up for you after having gotten all other achivements, there may be a work-around. Thanks to MilKAOS, FreeZZa1992 and SDREW44 for trying and confirming this method:

    Restart every case up to the point where you can talk to/pet Toby. Listen to the following phrase of Holmes, let the game save and then quit to the main menu. It is important to play on up to a checkpoint to let the game save your progress! (watch the left bottom corner for the saving process) After you pet Toby in Case 6, it is reported that the achievement would unlock!

    So this guide serves as an opportunity to warn everybody of the missable achievements and the most difficult ones. This "guide" is intended to get you the achievements all in ONE SINGLE playthrough.

    All of your final conclusion to end the case have to be correct. Use a guide, if necessary.
    Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & PunishmentsI Never GuessThe I Never Guess achievement in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments worth 110 pointsReach 6 correct conclusions for all 6 cases.

    You will need to always talk to Toby (your dog) in your cases. Note the second case only allows this right at the beginning - afterwards you cannot return to Baker street!
    Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & PunishmentsDog-fancierThe Dog-fancier achievement in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments worth 48 pointsInteract with Toby in every case.

    To get the following achievement you can always choose to let the culprits go, but to get all achievements you always have to condemn them and be "the good and rightful" guy.
    Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & PunishmentsA Man of CharacterThe A Man of Character achievement in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments worth 128 pointsReceive maximum personality ranking.

    The following achievements can only be gotten by choosing the right ending and condemning the culprits.
    Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & PunishmentsBruiserThe Bruiser achievement in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments worth 41 pointsBeat Cairns in a fight.

    Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & PunishmentsSharpshooterThe Sharpshooter achievement in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments worth 38 pointsDisarm Mexican by shooting the gun from his hand.

    Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & PunishmentsSuicide is Not an Option!The Suicide is Not an Option! achievement in Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments worth 44 pointsPrevent Miss White from suicide.

    And of course the most important, difficult and most missable one (you can get it with a second playthrough, though it might be lenghty):

    Legohead 1977I got all the achievements, so I suppose that redoing the whole thing again probably won't work for me, but it's got to be worth a go!

    laxasaurusrexOnly because the other comments are older - this achievement is still glitchy. However the talking to Toby trick still works - the only annoyance is the first few cases where you can't speak to him right away.
