About This Content



Create perfect—or imperfect—pets for your Sims, from fierce guard dogs to destructive kittens to trusty horses and more as you determine not only how your Sims’ pets look but their personality traits as well. With a variety of new activities and social interactions, take control of these pets and experience the world from their perspective. Give your Sims a new member of their household and discover all-new ways to play with life!

Key features:

  • More pets mean more fun! Create a wide variety of unique dogs, cats, and—for the first time ever—horses! Think your Sim has what it takes to tame a wild horse?
  • Be the Pet. Wield control of your Sim’s pet to chase, dig, tackle and more. Be the perfect companion or wreck havoc on your Sims!
  • Pets have their own traits! From intelligent, brave, and friendly to hydrophobic, skittish, and clueless to gentle, fast, and agile, determine the personality of your Sims’ pets.
  • Pets can learn skills. Cats and dogs can learn to hunt, dogs can learn to locate collectibles and fetch your Sims a date, and horses can learn racing and jumping.
  • Sims can take their pets outside! Take Spike to the park, bring Whiskers to the library, or ride Star to the new Equestrian Center.

Overall a pretty good game pack, the value is much higher than all of the sims 4 packs, that are all overpriced. Game is very fun and the interactions with the pets are fun. My old Windows computer get having a glitch where the pets look deformed and stretches. It was a Windows 7 just to warn any buyers.

The pets faces kept streching out when ever I zoomed in I dunno if its just me or not. It's not worth the $20 to me.

Right so I bought this EP last night and I thought it was running smoothly the first time I played but then after maybe 40 minutes it crashed, so I restarted Steam and tried it again. I got through CAS and then I chose a house, after that it just randomly crashed again.
I'm not sure if it's my computer but then againI don't really know.
I really don't recommend you get this as it crashes a whole lot and it's really not worth the $20.

I had 2 Dogs, a German Shepherd, and a Poodle, They then did the doggy style one night, then 2 days later, they had 3 puppies, (or 2) one puppy looked like his father, the other was a fat german shepherd, they were both german shepherds, the fat one was taken to the vet, and was clear he had Diabetes,

EA Is racist to fat people/dogs... 0/10

YES! One of the best expansions in my opinion. Pets are so much fun! The expansion also adds some awesome content, like the dog and cat park lots and equestrian center, a cute farming town, and lots of clothes and furniture. Overall, it's a large, polished expansion that adds lots of extra fun to the game.

I never trusted that ice cream truck, it goes around town then mysteriously parks in front of my house all day and night like a pedobear van with its creepy music. I hope it runs into a telephone pole and explodes.

This add so much more to The Sims 3. The pack has so much to offer I recommend this to anyone who loves pets. Though, it would be cool if you could be a stray animal. But i know a mod for that.

Pretty good! I like that they put more different animals in the game, especially horses. However, I have experienced some glitches, like horses getting "stuck" in the grass with their hooves sort of underground. Annoying, but if you save the game every now and then, it's not a huge problem to go out of the game without saving and then get back in.

Another glitch I've experienced, is that the cats and dogs fur look very gritty and is more of a shadow around the animal, than a nice full coat. Still haven't figured that out... but since you rarely see the animals that up close when you're in the game, it doesn't bother much - more than when you're creating them.
