Pets & Pet Relationships in Sims 4
Pets were first introduced to us in the Sims 4: Cats & Dogs expansion pack back in 2017. From that moment, we started adding new fury members to our families, befriending them and treating them as valid members of our households. We even got the opportunity to train them and teach them fun tricks.
Relationships with cats and dogs are just like relationships with human Sims, and they take time to grow into real friendships. There is either kinship and affection, or dislike and animosity, and if you want to be liked by that cute neighbor’s dog, you better make sure you do all you can to treat them right! Luckily, even if things go downhill and a pet starts to dislike you, you can always fix the relationship using pet relationship cheats.
When to Use Pet Relationship Cheats?
Pets are less predictable than human Sims, and you can’t just call them on the phone every day to fortify friendship and tell them you miss them. These relationships between pets and Sims are based only on live interactions, which makes them more fun, but also more complex to maintain. So, if you want to make many animal friends, befriend strays, or want to manipulate relationships with cats and dogs, cheats are the way to go!

How to Become Best Friends with Cats and Dogs using cheats?
Befriending cats and dogs works just like befriending any Sim. If you want instant relationships, there is a cheat that lets you choose the stage of friendship you want to have with fury pals of Sims.
Open a dialogue box and type modify relationship (Sim 1 First Name) (Sim 1 Last Name) (Pet First Name) (Pet Last name) X LTR_SimtoPet_Friendship_Main. The X before the LTR_SimtoPet_Friendship_Main is a number value where you can pick any friendship points. This pet relationship cheat allows you to add any relationship points from -100 to make a relationship negative, or 100, to make it positive.
So, for instance, let’s say your Sim’s name is Anya Snooty, and their pet cat is called Shadow Snooty, and you want to max their friendship to 100 points. In this case, to change their relationship, you will enter pet relationship cheat modifyrelationship Anya Snooty Shadow Snooty 100 LTR_SimtoPet_Friendship_Main.
