Dogs can have digging/hunting skills, and cats an have hunting skills. If your dog has a somewhat high digging skill, he/she might find gems or even the coolest place for your sims to hang out! I'm not relly sure what cats may find, but to train either pet all you have to do is while controlling an adult sim, select the pet and choose "Train to hunt". If Your still having difficulties, go on Youtube and search "Let's Play: The Sims 3 Pets" The video creator should be "Quxxn" or something similar to that.

Guest answered:

Cats and dogs can have the hunting skill, I know you get this with cats and dogs by practicing hunting on a certain toy and horses and unicorns can get riding and jumping

Guest answered:

The skills for horses- racing, jumping

The skills for dogs- hunting

And the skills for cats- hunting

Actually my dog is bringing way more than cat ever could by digging up gems (pink diamonds) then getting them cut into heart shaped. 20 can normally bring in about 110,000 dollars. Just use the karma power "lucky find" right before digging up for gems

you are right guest

Guest answered:

Cat's can learn the hunting trait by getting a toy out of the toy crate and if you cancel out the "play" option you can now practice hunting. Dogs can learn hunting and digging skills. Horses can learn Riding and Jumping skills. Just ride your horse and use the gallop option to increase your riding skill in both your horse and sim and get a jumping rail and practice jumping to increase your jumping skill on your horse. Hope this helped! :D

Guest answered:

You can use the testingenabled true to add unicorns to your household just like stray dogs cats and horses.

Guest answered:

My cat has the alpha pet lifetime reward, and is regularly catching beetles worth 1000 to 3500 simoleans! More bacon than I'm bringing home on any given day Smile

Guest answered:

I got 6 cats and with the hunt traits I can easily get 10k simoleans in a day c:<
