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.

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.

Pets are pretty useless in this game. They sometimes dig up items for your sims to sell, but in the long-run, they aren't interesting enough to have in everyday gameplay. You may want this if you REALLY like animals and like the way you can play them in this expansion, but to me, they just get in the way. If you want a sim who is in a medival period so they can all ride horses, then good for you. If you want a realistic farm and you already bought the store content with the cow and the chickens, then good for you. But for a normal sim household, it becomes a pain when you have to stop and take care of them or to get them out of a fence because they're glitching again. I suppose the new town provided and the clothes are pretty cool, but it really only works for certain playstyles. I can respect that, but it doesn't work well for me.

when i got the sims 3 pets i moved in a family and it worked the first time. Then i tried another family and it crashed. After that i made one sim then i adopted a cat and i was adopting a dog but when the dog got there it crashed, so i dont know whats wrong with it but other than that its AWESOME!! Maybe i just cant have dogs though.
