Pet don't use pet bed when directed

[ Edited ]
★★★★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? all
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Play a household with small pet - cat or dog, it doesn't matter. Buy a "pet bed"(small/big, size doesn't matter). Click the bed and call your pet to teach using it.
What happens when the bug occurs? Pet will come near the pet bed, and show "?" plumbob. And the sim play "angry|disappointed" animation because the pet didn't "get it". So the pet don't use the bed - they tend to sleep on the floor or on the cat tree. I repeated to teach multiple times, all their response is always "?".
What do you expect to see? When the player teach them(assign them) to the pet bed, the pet should start using it.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

I've tried this many times and never had a ? or any issues with this

 

There's others that have reported the animal don't really uses the bed but the ? usually points towards something inaccessible

Did you click on the same bed both times ? Did you try removing one for testing purposes and moving the other around a bit ?

Do you see any relation to traits or age of the pets ?

I don't know; I disabled auto-age and all pets are Adult. All my pets(of all households) have at least loyal/affectionate trait, but I think it's not related to this issue.

Hello @99publicidentity

 

Does the pet have low relationship with the Sim owner, or low training?  If either of those is the case, the pet may not always obey the owner.
