The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Dog Obedience


Once you complete the Life Dreams and Legacies Quest you will be able to use orbs to build the Pet Park, once the pet park is built, you can begin this hobby using a teen, adult or senior sim and a dog

NOTE: before you can complete this hobby you need a dog in your town (not a puppy) and they need to be wearing a collar that you can buy from the pet salon. Once they are wearing a collar when you click on them you will get the option to send to pet park:


Once one of your sims and the dog are at the pet park you can click on the statue and select one of the options:

  • Short Lesson- 2 hours
  • Obedience Class- 4 hours
  • Daily Study- 6 hours
  • Rigorous Training- 8 hours


After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the dog obedience reward collectibles. Every time your sims complete one of the dog obedience options their dog obedience hobby level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the dog obedience reward collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

NOTE: click on the dog at the pet park to get the option to send them home once you complete the hobby

The table below shows the level up percentage for each option:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL  2 hours 4 hours 6 hours 8 hours
1-2 27% 45% 63% 90%
2-3 13% 22% 31% 45%
3-4 6% 11% 15% 22%
4-5 4% 7% 10% 15%
5-6 3% 6% 8% 12%

The next table shows you for each level what dog obedience rewards you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Attack Dummy Sit on It and Down Boy are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Dogs Breakfast Well Behaved and Shake It are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Puppy Buddy Gentlemens Agreement and Hand Holding are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Walker Fall and Tip and Barrel Roll are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Guider of Dogs On a Roll and Dead to Lights are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 Dog Whisperer Stop and Drop and Down and Out are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed dog obedience collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

You will earn XPs when you complete a row in the hobby but to complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles

The rewards for completing this collection are the pet pool and 5LPs:

  • The first time you complete this hobby collection you unlock the pet pool, this will cost 25 SPs and you can find it in the pool items section20150228-084252.jpg
  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LPs
