Dogs have weird running speed when leashed

★★★ Novice

Since Island Living , whenever my sim has put a dog on the leash and runs somewhere, the Sim will run at normal speed whereas the dog will do the animation as if on 2x speed, with the legs going hammer and tongs, but staying at the same, normal speed. I've tried without mods, and it remains the same in vanilla Sims.

@Shrinui_Wolf   I found two bug reports on dog animations. One is for dogs teleporting when on a walk, and in a leash:

.. and one for general animal animation distortion:

If any of these fits your issue, please click Me Too on the first post and describe your problem, adding screen shots. The SimGurus are asking for saves too, so if you can, please provide it. There is a description in the last post in the second thread on how to share a save with them.

@crinrictYes, It used to look like how the dog is running in the Youtube video I linked (it's from 2018). I'm not sure when it changed, but I first noticed it months ago (probably June or July) and it was obvious that's not how it should look.

That youtube video (https://youtu.be/izBQXt7Kips?t=58) is showing a small dog jogging with a Sim and the animation is totally normal, so I recorded a video of what a small dog looks like jogging with a Sim now

(view in My Videos)

It's obvious the animation is going too fast.

I have the same issue and it's really annoying. I really don't know how to fix it.

for me it happened after a patch, without any mods. I have mods now and they all work, I ensure that they're all updated and compatible with the game, this is definitely not on my end. For me this is still ongoing and has been for months. It looks very weird.

The problem still exists - I've tried it with mods disabled after the newest patch.

I don't know when exactly this started but I believe it was at some point during Spring/Summer 2019.

The run animation speed is okay when the pet is solo (such as just running around or playing fetch) but gets sped up incorrectly when being taken for a jog.

I've got the same problem, too! It happens with big dogs, too, which makes zero sense since their legs are longer and they have no need to be running like that lol
