Happy Go Lucky Trait for Dogs
I was browsing The Sims 4 Community Facebook Group the other day when I came upon a thread talking about how difficult it can be to take care of pets in the Sims 4. Several people asked if there was a mod that made pets easier to take care of and happy all the time. Well, here is my mod for that! This doesn’t make them happy all the time, but most of the time. They’ll never get sad, but they might still get scared and tense. Luckily, all those negative moods/buffs go away five times faster with this trait. Also, Happy Go Lucky doggies never run away!
Click on the bars below to view a detailed breakdown of the trait’s features and a preview of all the trait’s buffs.
v1.3 – The last patch or so broke this mod’s ability to stop pups from running away. That has now been fixed in both versions of this trait mod. Now doggies STAY HOME!
If you have suggestions for how to improve this mod, please contact me.
I tested this trait as best I could, but I could only “neglect” my Sim’s dog so much in order to truly test the extremes of this trait… I’m a softy, what can I say? If you run into any problems or features not working the way they should, please tell me so I can fix them!
This trait is only for doggies. After popular demand, I have created a similar trait for kittycats called Zen Cat Trait for Cats.

I created this mod using the Mod Constructor v4 by Zerbu. I also utilized Sims 4 Studio for several edits, and it was invaluable so thank you to the team behind that program as well! In addition, I made extensive use of the online TDESC Browser along with Scumbumbo’s Tuning Error Notifier. Without those these tools, this mod would never have worked!

Hey Lizzie, I love this happy go lucky dog trait, it keeps my doggos and Sim dog parents happy 🙂
When I redownloaded for this new patch, the simularity-traitdog-happygolucky text files within the download say that the newest version of this trait mod is from 2022, but the actual package files next to the text file are both still old from 2021. Could it be that they accidentally did not get replaced on the google drive? I also tried the other download buttons, but all of them have the same older files.
Thanks a lot in advance!!

I checked all my files in all places and the newest version that I have and have been using is from 11/21 so I have no idea why the text file says 3/22. It’s a complete mystery to me! The mod files in the zip (11/21) do have my last updates in it so I don’t know why at all the 3/22 date is in the text file. I just double checked the mod and it’s still the working version. Sorry for the confusion (I confused myself too!).
TL;DR The version you downloaded is the latest version and the text file is wrong. Sorry!
