The Pet Shop

Dogs and Cats are pets, friends, and a source of treasure - that's win-win!
The introduction of the Pet Shop provides an opportunity for each of your Sims to own a pet - whereas the introduction of pets in the game took the form of a stray dog that your very first Sim meets and befriends on their new home lot.

Pets in the game do more than serve as companions - they also serve as a potential source of Simoleons as well as Life Points thanks to their habit of finding and digging up the odd treasure.

The following pets are presently available in the game:


  • Greyhound - 1-Star - Cost = 5 LP
  • German Shepherd - 2-Stars - Cost = 18 L
  • Labrador - 2-Stars - Cost = 20 LP
  • Golden Retriever - 2-Stars - Cost = 22 LP
  • Dalmatian - 2-Stars - Cost = 25 LP
  • Husky - 3-Stars - Cost = 75 LP
  • Robo Dog - 3-Stars - Cost = 80 LP


  • British Shorthair - 1-Star - Cost = 6 LP
  • Maine Coon - 2-Stars - Cost = 18 LP
  • Siamese - 2-Stars - Cost = 22 LP
  • Toyger - 2-Stars - Cost = 25 LP
  • Black - 2-Stars - Cost = 30 LP
  • Bengal - 3-Stars - Cost = 75 LP
  • Bejeweled Blitz's Anchovy - 3-Stars - Cost = 75 LP
  • Robocat - 3-Stars - Cost = 80 LP


In addition to the above pets you can also purchase Rabbits via the Pets Section of the in-game store.


Pet Accessories including Dog Houses, feeding bowls, and toys can be purchased in the Pets Section of the in-game store.

Which pet you buy really depends on which you can afford and which you think is best. With respect to the Star ratings, while it is not officially stated, the higher the star-rating it seems that the more likely the pet is to find good items.

Managing Pets

Once your pet is placed when you tap on them you will find two options - Rename and Relocate.

The Rename command allows you to name the pet any name you like.

The Relocate command allows you to put your pet up for Adoption - but be careful in selecting that as it is the game's way of DELETING the pet. Once you put it up for adoption it is not possible to get it back.

The second option is to have another Sim family take over ownership of the pet. You can select the family via the Relocation command.

How do you find golden retrievers on the first day?!
Is it a different device?
But my pet shop only cost 1,000, probably because I got it as soon as I got 4 sims. That's what I'm guessing.

Added 8th Jun 2015, ID #567496

The more businesses you already have built have (excluding workplaces) the more the next one costs, and the ore Sims you'll need.

How do you get the store????

Do any pets dig up more LP then others? Like a 2star cat/dog. The two 1star dogs I have dig up an LP once in the blue moon. I have finally saved up 23 LP. Gotta spend it wisely...

I'd also suggest building to competition center and making your sims be the best at cooking, fishing, and top at various jobs. First place gets you 3 LP in 24 hours. I always have my sims improving their skill or planting or working so when I come back to the game there is money to be harvested or an improved skill set I can make money/LP off.

How do u build a kennel for a dog?

Added 13th Oct 2014, ID #458228

My pet shop was 200,000 *sighs*. But an easy way to get lots of simoleons fast is to plant a batch of beans in the morning before you go to work/school and another batch just before your bed. With ten or more sims u can earn over $20,000 a day

Added 2nd Oct 2014, ID #454059

That is what is known as a revenue source. The idea behind it is to get you to pay real-world money for the LP mate. That is how they make money in this game.

Added 30th Sep 2014, ID #453290

I don't think pets should cost LP but simolens instead, because it takes ages to get LP but I think if it was simolens, it would be a lot, maybe 5,000 or 10,000 as cheapest

Added 28th Sep 2014, ID #452551

Quest / Building the Pet Shop

Happily that is not how this works. As you progress in the game with each key level you get building sites added to the map - so when you click on the map view - the building icon in the bottom center of the play screen - you will see that there are new building sites in grey that represent buildings you CAN build.

For example right now, on the map view for the game that we are using to create this guide, there is a newly added building site for the Candlelit Fork Restaurant - we did not do anything to get that to appear other than to be at or above the required level.

You will find the same to be true in your game - so once you reach the point in leveling where you CAN build the Pet Shop, you will be ABLE to build it!
