Manufacturer's Description

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!

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sims with horses ! 22 Oct. 2011
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a good expansion pack, which actually adds enjoyment to the game. It is an improvement on the old Sims 2 Pets pack for several reasons. Firstly in addition to customising the look of your pet, you can now customise their accessories and choose from a wider range of character traits. With this pack you can also now actually play as your pet, and are able to fully control their actions and interactions. Your pet now has it's own wishes you can attempt to fulfil to gain "Lifetime Happiness" points.

The best feature of all is the addition of horses. You can ride, train and groom your horse, buy equestrian goods (including different types of jumps), and can even become a "jockey". There is also a lot more new actions, interactions and training features available with the other pets, and new lifetime wishes for your human sims.

In addition to the horses, dogs and cats, you can also collect birds, snakes, lizards and even turtles.

There is a new town full of special "pet features" and if you go the collections section of the Build Menu, you'll find a new Sims 3 Pets collection of building & decor features, pet related goods and furnishings.

There is no instruction manual included in the game box, but you have the option of using the in-game tutorial if you need it, though if you're used to playing the Sims you should be able to work it out as you go along.

So it's a good pack and definitely worth buying if you're a fan of the Sims.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it! 25 Oct. 2011

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been playing the Sims since the very beginning and I've been waiting for this game to come out, bought it straight away and I love it! I must admit it's more challenging than the other expansions but thats the fun part, and it never gets boring. Would strongly recommend to all the Sims players out there!!

5.0 out of 5 stars PETS!!! 22 Oct. 2011
By Eleni TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the fifth expansion pack for The Sims 3 (PC/Mac DVD).

I was really looking forward to this expansion pack and I wasn't disappointed at all. Although there were some very good expansion packs before, this one really adds a completely new element to our gameplay.

The main addition of course are the pets; there are cats, dogs and even horses, which is great. Pets are created just like human Sims and can be as unique and strange as the player likes. Their appearance can be created the same way human Sims are created and they can also have personality traits. Sadly, pets unlike humans can only have up to three personality traits, and as everyone knows, pets have a lot more complex personalities than that. There are also some new personality traits for human Sims, but they are all pet related and not very inspired. The brilliant thing about this expansion is that the player can actually control the pets and have them learn things and interact with humans and other pets.

In addition to the pets, there is a new neighbourhood which is very nice, green and relaxed, but maybe just a little too American. There are new buildings including an equestrian centre and a lot of nice new items. However, unlike other expansions, there are no new careers for human Sims.

In the few hours I played, I created two cats, one dog and a horse, but I think that we can have up to six pets per household. The only downside of this expansion is that I love playing with my sim pets so much, I might begin to neglect my real pets, but real pets are a lot more demanding than these easygoing sim pets, so that is not going to happen.

4.0 out of 5 stars -loved it- 9 Mar. 2015
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Edition:Standard Edition
i found it alot of fun i espically love that is quite country style so very texas themed and the world is pretty big and i find very imaginitive i love the little parks for the dogs and cats
and what it comes with is:
-a world (large,different and of course fun to roam around)
-clothes women and men and some dress up clothes for the kids
-hairstyles women and men includes things like cowboy hats e.t.c
-and of course pets =
cats = very cute very annoying when it comes furniture seing as they actually scratch things like a very expensive couch that someone spent ages saving up for now i also find that honeslty not that fun i am a cat lover but the dog is more fun you can take it on walks and it has alot more stuff to do + if you have supernatural its a good idea to have a witch with a cat ...
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
dogs= now like cats they do scartch things -_- which leads to you needing to buy a new one -_- but i find they are alot of fun and very sentimental they make bff's with your sims like the cat and there is many different breeds like chiwawa to husky they are split into groups small and large there is not much of a difference they are just big or small so yeah.. and they like cats and horses get traits!
