This download is a custom pose or animation. This means that you will need the Pose Player or Animation Player mod by cmomoney installed in order to use the download in your game.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
You will need Cmomoney's Pose Player version 5-1-12 or later in order for these to work!

Dog Play Pose Pack
Introducing my first pose upload! I decided to make a small set of playful poses for your large and small dogs. Most of them are built as pairs, but mixing and matching is possible. This set includes 12 poses (8 for large dogs and 4 for small dogs) and features a pose list.

Poses included
  • ad_PH_DogPlay_Bow1
  • ad_PH_DogPlay_Bow2
  • ad_PH_DogPlay_Run1
  • ad_PH_DogPlay_Run2
  • ad_PH_DogPlay_Rear1
  • ad_PH_DogPlay_Rear2
  • ad_PH_DogPlay_Wrestle1
  • ad_PH_DogPlay_Wrestle2
  • al_PH_DogPlay_Trot1
  • al_PH_DogPlay_Run3
  • al_PH_DogPlay_Bow3
  • al_PH_DogPlay_Bow4

The Wrestle1 pose (dog lying on its side) is designed to work with a dog with no long fur. For use with hairier dogs, granthes' One More Slot Please may be required to avoid clipping with the floor.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Key: - File was updated after upload was posted
Filename - Tip: You can click the magnifying glass to see the archive contents Size Downloads Date
PharaohHound_DogPlay_Poses.zip 98.0 KB 9,302 26th Jul 2012
Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Any way you could make one of them sitting down, and one of them lying down? I want these poses for my large & small dogs so I can put them in family portraits.

Thanks everyone for the great comments!

JaneGreenEyes, I don't take requests, but if I make another pose pack at some point I'll try to fit those in. Making poses is actually very possible to learn, if you want to try, this tutorial is how I learned to do it.
