Like most The Sims 3 expansion packs, this one came with its own unique set of problems. We read the details and system requirements and found our new pc more than met what was listed for play. However, once we downloaded it we found numerous graphics issues and had to literally purchase a new video card to handle the game. (We had already invested so much in these Sims 3 products it was the only thing that makes sense since you cannot resell or gift these products. The registration and product code are a one-time-only use.)
Once we went through the usual issues to get the game to work with the core game and other packs, we found the pets were actually very charming, fun and amazingly well done in most instances. Definitely a plus and a fun addition to your Sims 3 neighborhood. Your Sim can adopt mature pets or puppies/kittens/foals and interact with them on several levels including training. You can also, with some work, befriend and eventually adopt a wild unicorn. There is also wildlife in various areas and do not be surprised to see deer, raccoon, birds and more. Your Sim can work on their animal skills and interact with them.
There are events such as riding competitions, shows and such that allow you to take your pets into social settings and increase their skills and relationships (as well as your Sim's) AND you can actually play as your pet.
