Re: [OPEN] [CD] Sims Can't Lecture/become companion for adopted Pets

I have the same issue and I'm so sad that it isnt fixed with the patch today Frown I want to lecture my pets again. They are destroying anything and its so annoying...

I tested it with pets I adopt from the streets. I'm not able to lecture any of my pets...

I thought it was fixed with the patch today, however, it just seems to be that my child can lecture the cats but not the parents who adopted the cats. I think it's the same issue as it has been, as the child was a toddler when I first got the cats, so I couldn't test if he was able to lecture/train them until he aged up.

Yes, no improvement on this at all, which is a shame as I don't know if I can play with any pets until this gets sorted as it will annoy me

Here I have a Savefile for you!

I tested it right before I saved the game (the cat scratched at the bed and you cant lecture it)

Yes, ongoing for me as well. Not able to be a companion, encourage or discipline behavior as the "adopter" but additions to the household can.

@SimGuruNick  I really hope I'm doing this correctly, I'm not super familiar with file sharing. 

 

Here is my updated save file for my current family. When I previously shared it in this thread my child hadn't aged up yet, so I didn't know that he could discipline the cats while the parents could not.

I'm having this issue as well, only the Sim that adopted the dog I have cannot lecture/become companion while every other Sim in the household can...very strange 

Edit: I forgot to mention that I am doing the legacy challenge and this has happened ever since I started it, which was right around Get Famous came out. I only have the Cats & Dogs Expansion Pack, nothing else.

Okay, this took a lot of trial and error, but to fix this, after you adopt the pet, go to cas and save the household. After that make a household with just the dog/cat (that you can’t lecture) and save that household. Go back to the household you were playing as and re-add the pet to the family and boom, you can lecture them. I hope this helps! 


THANK YOU!!! It worked! Standard smile
