First time you complete this hobby you unlock the pet pool, it will cost you 25SPs and can be found in the pool items 20150228-084252.jpg Further times you receive 5LPs

I can’t find one of the awards, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start a new collection on the list to start over.

  1. I just recently started this hobby myself, having just built the pet park. I have 3 adult sims with the Animal Fanatic life orbs (all using the Dog Obedience hobby as their life dream) working round the clock with three dogs to finish this. I have wondered just how many sims can do this particular task at one time? I have tried 4 at once. It looks like there is room for quite a few in the area. I know the most you can bring to a place are 10 sims. How many did you use to complete the hobby the first time?

    (On another hobby topic, I have 1 sim juggling and 1 sim surfing. The maximum sims allowed to do each of those tasks is 1 at a time. I think it would be helpful if you added this kind of info. to your blog. I think you have before. The salsa dancing one helped me a lot: 2 pairs of sims. Like you can use 4 bowlers at a time in the bowling hobby, 1 in the catwalking hobby, etc. Four in figure skating…I think.) I don’t want you to mess up your sims’ hobbies trying to figure this out. Any information you can give me is useful. Maybe I spent too much time thinking about this. I try to get these hobbies completed as efficiently as I can with the amount of sims that I have.

    Thanks for all the info. you’ve given on this topic. I will save up my SPs now for this prize.

    • I tried to complete this hobby with two sims and it was a nightmare, it kept glitching but it meant that I didn’t try with more sims so I have no idea how many you can use, sorry.

      • I’ve had glitching problems myself with it. Sometimes I click on all the exclamation marks over their heads at the same time and it kind of fogs over on one or two, and I end up not being able to get that reward. I’ve since started clicking one at a time (allowing time for the reward to pop up) and then click the next, and that has helped.

        It’s no problem. I was just curious.

      • I only even click on one at a time and it still did this

      • Ok, I’m still having problems with glitching and I think the dogs are the cause. They act according to their own free will. They sometimes stop doing the requested task. Today I clicked and got a reward, only to have that dog run towards another dog and that one caused the other two rewards to glitch out. Like when a sim plays frisbee with a dog, sometimes the action will just stop because the dog decides it wants to go dig buried treasure, eat, drink, use a dog house, or run free. It was (STILL IS) especially annoying if you have assigned sims to this specific task to earn life orbs. The pets need to be fixed.

      • You can have at least 8 sims do this hobby. I couldn’t check to see up to 10 Sims as I ran out of dogs and free sims. It appears there is room for 10 Sims to perform the Dog Obedience Hobby, but I only was able to check to 8 Sims.

      • Two sims doing it was glitchy enough! I don’t think I could have 10 sims working on it:/

  2. I haven’t done this hobby yet, so the information is great to have! All of my pet hobby sims are currently doing the wear out the dog frisbee and obsessive cat stroking hobbies because I’m working on platimum orbs to get some permanent sims in my town of varying ages so I don’t have to skip toddler, preteen and teen tasks in the weekly and social tasks. I’d like to do this one for fun once I’ve finished them up.

  4. so sad, i hv to build the pet salon first. And it cost 700.000 -___-

  5. What to do if i haven’t got pet collar in the pet salon :O :c

  6. Have you done the Dog Agility hobby yet? I can’t find a post about it and I’m struggling with it. Any help would be appreciated!

    • Not yet, I’m still getting the annoying animal fanatic orbs to build it (least favourite orbs, without a job life dream it takes forever!) but the post will be up as soon as I have completed it

  7. I hate how the other orbs which have job life dreams have tons of life dreams to choose from while Animal life dreams only have a handful of options, one of them requiring you to buy from their online store. And it’s very hard to have tons of animals since they cost LPs. They could have at least included an option where it can be fulfilled by everyday objects that can be found around the town.🙂 Just wanted to vent here. There’s really nothing that can be done unless EA adds more life dreams to the game.

  8. I built the pet salon. But when i go to style a pet there’s nothing there:/ just a blank screen there’s no collars or anything just a blank box…

  9. Hiya! Have you unlocked the dog agility hobby? I’ve just built it at the pet park but when I try to get my sim to do it they keep getting the blue footprints above their head. I have the dog there with the collar and I’ve tried attempting it once my other sims have finished the dog obedience but nothing seems to work. I don’t know if I’m doing something wrong or if the game is glitched or what!

    Thanks for this blog it really is the best source of sims freeplay info anywhere🙂

    • I am completing it right now, I haven’t had this issue though, it tells me a lot that there isn’t a dog free when there is but I just keep selecting the option until it works so that might work for you?
      You’re welcome! Thanks🙂

    • did you find a solution? i faced the same problem, but have not found any chance to avoid blue footprints

      • Hi, no solution yet. I contacted Firemonkeys and they sent me this message:
        “This has been confirmed fixed in a future update.At this time please avoid this hobby. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.”

        So I guess we just have to wait for a fix…

  10. When I try to buy a collar at the pet store it takes my money but the collar doesn’t show up in my dog… I’m so confused!
