Retriever dogs are pet animals. The first dog is unlocked at experience level 20 and the second at level 28.

They give players experience points in exchange for bacon.

Dog house

Each dog costs 9 green vouchers and 2 blue ones, or 195 diamonds. They must be placed near a dog house to be bought. Players can have two retriever dogs.

Dogs and dog houses can be bought from the Shop. ShopShop


Giving bacon

When given bacon dogs eat then roam the farm for six hours and finally fall asleep. Players can immediately wake them up to receive 30 xpxp per animal. Dogs stay asleep otherwise.

Dogs which have been woken up but are not fed for a long while cannot fall asleep and wander around their shelter looking very sleepy and tired.

Strategy tips

  • Waking dogs one by one instead of all at once can increase your chance of getting a random supply item.
