NOTE: you need to buy a puppy from the pet store to complete this hobby

Who can be a puppy pal?

Adults and Teens

Only one sim can do this hobby the first time you complete it.

TIP: to complete in the time limit you can send another sim to a neighbours town to do the hobby

How can you be a puppy pal?

Complete the a puppy odyssey quest then buy a puppy play mat (S1,000) from the promotions r us store, it will go into the hobby and career tab in your inventory for you to place in your house

Where can you be a puppy pal?

At home

What are the puppy pal options?

    • Play with puppy- 1 hour 15 minutes

  1. Ruff Start
  2. Canine Companion
  3. Pawsitively Friends
  4. Best Friend
  5. Pack Leader
  6. Puppy Whisperer

What puppy pal games are there to collect?


What do you win?

The first time, you have 7 days to complete to unlock the poodles which can be found in the pet store.

The poodles are very expensive but they are both three stars, the puppy costs 68LPs and the adult costs 82LPs!


If you don’t complete in time you still unlock the animal themed shirts for adults (these can be found in the wardrobe for free)

The next five times you complete this hobby you will receive rugs (you will receive one of the following at random each time you complete the hobby)

NOTE: The first picture shows you all the shapes each rug comes in, after that the other pictures just show you one rug so you can see the design and the prices for each

Sea Green Diamond/ Triangles


Yellow Zig Zag



Navy Squares



Gray Lines



Orange Circles



Further times you will receive 3LPs for completing the hobby

I can’t find one of the puppy pal games, any tips?

The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.

Is it worth using the lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

TIP: I completed this hobby fairly quickly as it was pretty easy to level up with just the 1 hour 15 minute option!

How do I start the collection again?

Once you have finished the collection you can click start a new collection on the list to start over.

  1. I was waiting for you to post this so I could say “OMG those poodles are expensive!” I haven’t bought one because it’s just so many LPs.

    • How disappointing it is when you work so hard to complete a quest/ hobby by the deadline, only to discover the ‘prize’ is too expensive to buy. Thank you for this blog so we can be informed. I will not be using any LPs to finish this hobby! The poodles are cute but not worth it.

  2. My Sims and their pups will not get on the mat together. Is there a trick to it or something they need to do first? I have no problems with the kittens. Thank you!

  3. I did not get to complete the puppy odyssey because puppy poofed. Contacted fire monkeys support and they have yet to fix the issue so I continue. My question is how long do you think it will take to fix the (known) issue or even get a reply back. I haven’t played in 3 days. Got on my game last night and most of my sims where in the red zone fore there food,etc…

    • Sorry but I have no idea when they will fix this issue, only they will be able to tell you that

    • I have contacted firemoney a few times in regards to this game and I always get great customer support. Usually takes a few weeks, usually around 3 weeks, but they will fix the problem and do something along the lines of restarting the quest or giving you items anyway. Hope this helps.

  4. I rather not try hard cause the poodle is so EXPENSIVE!!!

  5. Do the puppies ever age into adult dogs or do they stay puppies forever? And are the puppy breeds the same as the adult dogs, just smaller? Also, are the puppies any different than the adult dogs? Just wondering to see if doing the quest is worth it.

  6. I need the last hobby on the 3rd row. Any idea what I do?

  7. I have just unlocked my first set of rugs, to find out they cost LPs! So bummed. It was the blue ones, I hope some of the other rugs will cost simoleons. I didn’t finish it in time because I really couldn’t care less about another dog breed, they’re all so expensive and boring. I wish they had stray cats and dogs, that we could adopt for free, like in real life.

    • Don’t worry some of them cost simoleons (all pictures of the rugs are now in the post)

    • That would be so cool. You could randomly find them at locations such as the park or community center! I’d prefer that over them adding a shelter bc I’m guess that would be no different than the pet store prices…
      Oh and your last name is the same as my favorite sim family is last name lol. I name their first names but keep their lasts random. Their is 2 virtual babies and a preteen plus couple in your name! That’s not weird at all… It’s ok kanell is a popular last name.

  8. So, the time limit is only to get the poodles or is it to get the poodles AND the rugs? Sorry, i didn’t get it clear

  9. Why do they say that i get the poodle “if i’m lucky”? Am i or am i not getting it for sure? Well, the possibility to buy it…

  10. I know almost everyone is saying that the poodle is expensive, and I totally agree. What is the point of finishing the hobby in time if you can’t afford the prize? But I’m all for those rugs…

  11. It just told me that I hadn’t completed the hobby in time to get the poodle even though this morning it said I still had five days.

  12. Hello thanks for your blog, it has helped my husband and I lots. Here is my concern. I came on here when I was doing fashion hunter hobby and had read the glitch and had leveled up to 6 in a few hours. I kept doing it to get all of them for the next couple of days trying to get the last few but I had like 3 days left it just said it ended and I couldn’t get the prize and I was okay with it. I recently started the survivalist hobby and the puppy hobby yesterday and today so I had 6 days left and 7 days and then I went on tonight and both hobbies saying time was up and I couldn’t get the prize. Wanted to see if anyone else had the same issue after doing the glitch or any advice for me…

  13. I went to the pet store but didn’t see the mat

  14. Thanks for the tip about going to another town to work on this!

  15. if i miss the time limit is there a way to restart it or add more time?? i really want those poodles but i missed for 1 day, help me please, even if i need to play, i dont care

  16. Hi. First of all. Thanks for all of your tips. Great job! Anyway , I just wanna know if any use to keep the puppy after finishing a quest. It’s pretty useless so far… But I don’t wanna age it Coz it costs LPs 😓

    • You’re welcome!
      You don’t keep the puppy from the quest but you get the first one free from the pet store once you complete the quest, then you can complete this hobby that you have posted this comment on so they aren’t useless.

  17. I have two questions:

    1. To finish these hobby quests, are you supposed to reach level 6 of the hobby? Like, get a Sim to level 6 of the Puppy Pal Hobby?

    2. As of now, will you get a free poodle from completing the quest in time, or will you have to buy it for LP?

    Thanks, I really appreciate your work too. It’s very useful for helping me get my quests done.

    • 1. No you have to find all the collectibles, reaching level 6 does not complete the hobby but you need to reach level 6 to unlock all the collectibles to be able to find them

      2. No, like it says in the post it costs LPs.

      • Alright thanks. I’m desperate for a poodle since I have a real poodle (named Fuzzy) so I used your cooking method. Currently at 80 LP lol

  18. Hobby finished earlier than i expected. :'[ what do i do ? i still have 2-3days left to finish it

  19. Hi. First of all, you’re awesome and this blog stands out from all the rest. Anw I’ve been asking this on the official TSFP Facebook but no one seems to give me the answer I need lmao I saw this rug in an architect home and it looks so much like the gray lines rug, only that its black, purple and gray/dark blue grey. I cant find it anywhere, neither in the home store or online and Im sure its not one of the packs in the puppy pals hobby.

  20. I finished my quest and bought the play mat from promotions r us bit when I went to go place it, it shows the limited object but I’ve never place it anywhere yet.

    • You need to go into your inventory and click on the hobby and career items tab and you’ll be able to place it, it will say it’s locked or its a limited item when you try and place it from the new items tab

  21. I bought the play mat like it says, and it’s in my inventory but it says it’s a limited object and won’t let me place it. Any ideas?!
