Sims can own cats and dogs. Pets features 75 pre-made breeds of dogs and thirty pre-made breeds of cats. Create-A-Pet is similar to "Create-a-Sim", where a user builds a human Sim characters. In Create-a-Pet, players may customize a cat or dog by choosing patterns and colors of coat, body shape, facial structure, and personality, which determines playfulness, neatness, loyalty, aggression, and intelligence.
Pets have motives like their Sim counterparts. Sims and pets are similar except for the absence of the "Environment" motive, which "Scratching" replaces in cats and "Chewing" in dogs. Sims may also train their pets to do various tricks.
Pets can follow one of three career paths: Security, Showbiz and Services. When pets get promoted, various pet-related "unlockables" are made available along with a code so players can share these items with others.
Pets have three life stages: Puppy/Kitten, Adult, and Elder. The length of a pet's elder hood is selected at random, however there is an aspiration reward object which will extend the pet's life by a few days with each use. but how Pets are able to breed, and doing so will produce a litter. The number of puppies or kittens is dependent on the number of Sims and pets currently in the house. Players can play with up to eight Sims or six pets at one time, although one can only have a total of six Sims and/or pets in a household altogether.
You can train your pets to do various kinds of tricks, and you can scold or praise them. The tricks would include sit, stay, shake, come here, guard, roll over, sing, and more. In the Nintendo Gameboy Advance version, you can teach it to stand up on two legs and juggle, or other cool and unusual tricks. When your pet learns a new trick, it would put an addition to the Sim and pet relationship. If the pet does something bad, you should scold it. These are a few unpleasant acts: peeing in the house; digging up the yard; chewing up the newspaper or floor; scratching up the furniture; digging out the trash. After a pet has done something correct, however, you should praise it. You could also give it a treat while praising to do the right thing or doing the right trick performance.
