Create a Pet and Create a Sim

The text of this page is our interpretation of the game's database. The Sims 3 Pets is still under development and this information must be considered as unofficial where not otherwise. The features listed may be not included in the final game and should not be considered as the complete list of the game's interactions.


In order to make things clearer and avoid misunderstandings as much as possible, we have highlighed each piece of information as follows:

Pet traits

moodlet_impressedWe already know that we'll be able to give up to three traits for each animal, in order to determine their personality - as it happens for Sims.

moodlet_disappointedKeep in mind that, although fully described, you may not find them in the final game and that they can be edited at any time. 
  • Likes swimming: Contrary to popular belief, not all breeds of dogs like to swim. However, when given this trait, dogs just can't get enough satisfaction from taking a dip! Dogs that Like Swimming will try to swim as much as they can.
  • Lazy: Lazy pets just love to lie down or stay in one place as they get tired easily.
  • Aggressive: Aggressive pets aren't inherently mean, they usually just have a bad attitude when interacting with other pets. A bad attitude that usually leads to fights that is… Aggressive pets will generally act aggressively towards other pets by fighting and using other mean interactions.
  • Agile: Agile horses are nimble, strong, and love to jump. They make awesome Show Jumping competitors but get bored if they don't stay active.
  • Brave: Brave horses have an extra helping of courage to help them deal with the chaos of sprinklers, fireworks, burglar alarms, and other terror-inducing everyday objects.
  • Destructive: Whether destroying furniture or digging holes in the yard Destructive Pets are sure to cause chaos wherever they are!
  • Fast: Fast horses are the speed demons of the animal kingdom. They love to gallop and have a natural talent for racing, but they need plently of exercise to stay satisfied.
  • Gentle: Gentle horses are the calmest of the herd. They will never kick a Sim and are often easier to get along with.
  • Hydrophobic: Hydrophobic dogs have a natural aversion for anything that relates to water. When in the water, they are definitely not happy. Dogs with the Hydrophobic trait detest swimming in swimming pools.
  • Hyper: Hyper Pets are always ready for action and today is no exception. Get out your pet's favorite toy because Your Pet wants to Play on the Carpet.
  • Loyal: "A dog is a Sim's best friend" is a saying that certainly holds true! Loyal dogs love spending time and interacting with their Sims, and even seem to learn skills faster than other dogs. Loyal Dogs have better relationships with Sims in their family.
  • Nervous: Nervous horses see danger everywhere and can be startled by the most insignificant things. They tend to get along well with Neurotic Sims, who have the same problem.
  • Noisy: Noisy Pets are very vocal and provide a special accompaniment when Sims are playing instruments.
  • Piggy: Piggy Pets are voracious eaters who don’t mind munching garbage or drinking from the toilet.
  • Playful: Playful Pets always want to have fun and have a happy-go-lucky attitude.
  • Proud: Proud pets think they're better than others and make their own image a top priority; they can't stand having low hygiene. Proud pets tend to think they're a bit better than any of the other pets around
  • Skittish: Skittish Pets have a nervous disposition and are easily startled.
  • Adventurous: Adventurous Pets are very curious and love to explore.
  • Clueless: Clueless pets tend to forget what they're doing and are easily distracted. They don't learn skills and traits too quickly, but they do get along well with Absent-Minded Sims. Clueless pets tend to forget what they are doing and are a little ditsy.
  • Friendly: Pets with the Friendly trait not only get along better with other pets, but they'll usually have better relationships with their Sims as well.
  • Friendly pets have a special knack for quickly befriending Sims and other Pets.
  • Genius: Genius pets are always thinking on their paws (or hooves). They learn skills and new traits quickly and get along well with other Genius pets and Sims.
  • Hunter: Pets with the Hunter trait are excellent at stalking and catching prey.
  • Independent: Independent pets not only prefer to be on their own, but have more fun when playing on their own rather than in big groups or other social situations. Independent pets prefer to be on their own rather than socializing or playing with other pets and Sims.
  • Neat: Neat Pets are naturally clean and love to be bathed.
  • Non-destructive: Non-Destructive Pets are very gentle, and never destroy furniture or dig holes in the yard.
  • Mean
  • Quiet: Quiet Pets do not make much noise.
  • Shy: Pets with the Shy trait prefer and are the happiest when around their Sim. Being around other pets and Sims make them a bit nervous. Shy pets prefer spending time with their favorite Sim rather than other pets.
  • Hates jumping: Some horses prefer to keep their hooves on the ground. When a horse hates jumping, it will refuse to jump more often and do worse at Show Jumping and Cross-Country competitions. It may even take its anger out on your shiny new jump training obstacles!
  • Ornery: Ornery horses are stubborn and don't deal well with Sims. They don't like to be approached or touched by strange Sims, and may even kick Sims they don't like. As odious as these attributes might be, they do give Ornery horses an odd affinity for Evil and Mean-Spirited Sims.

Sim traits

There should be new traits for Sims aswell, that are all about their relationship with pets:
  • Dog person
  • Cat person
  • Equestrian trait
  • Animal lover
moodlet_stirCrazyThere is no mention to the Allergic to fur trait, announced in a GameSpot preview like a month ago. SimGuruGraham told they're still working on pet traits and that the allergic to fur trait is, for now, confirmed only for the console version of The Sims 3 Pets.

moodlet_stirCrazySimGuruRyan, instead, replied to a player's question that he would describe his Sim-self as a dog person.
