@solexmert Could you try repairing your game through Origin. Yeah, they should do stuff if you have autonomy on.

Re: my dog just stands there

@solexmert It's general autonomy and goes for all Sims/pets. There's a setting in your game options.

Mine basically runs around, goes play with toys, gets scared of stuff.

Could you test a different save/dog if you have the same issue ? What traits does the dog have ?

In the case if your video it appears there is not enough space to allow the dog to move. Move the seat away from that table just a bit. 

If you used MOO ( move objects ) be sure it is turned off.

@solexmert  There are many videos on YouTube that show off cats and dogs. 

They searching for Sims 4 Cats and Dogs or Sims 4 Veterinarian.

 

@solexmert 
Edit to add some observations.

I created a new Sim to test dog behavior in the game. I used the 'Dog Hangout' lot trait to attract dogs to my home lot and had my Sim meet each one.
Eventually he befriended and adopted one of the random strays. As long as there was a Sim on the lot the dog would go to be with them and play fetch etc.

When my Sim left for work (rabbithole job) the dog did not do much. Sleep, go potty or eat if food was available.
There really was not much to video. If I did it would be a long boring one since I do not know how to edit them.  Confusedmile:
