you don't have to play long per day. but you might wanna play over, just to see how the dogs are doin. you can carry up to three pets. yolu know that dogs and cats are totally different so its up to you which one you want for a price. like any other dog, you will have to walk the dog everyday. theres lots of toys, and accessories for the pets. overall the things you can do with the pets, I feel I cant do a whole lot since I feel limited. but theres contests, room decorations and other stuff to do. but keep looking after the dog/cat, they might be dirty.
