Steve Webkinz here, reporting on the return of Pet Buddies to your pet’s room!
Since the launch of Webkinz X, players have only been able to see Pet Buddies paired with their pets in the Clubhouse and in the Coral Cove room on Vacation Island (because it uses the same room programming as the Clubhouse).
Our latest update has now returned the Pet Buddies to the pet room on both the web AND mobile app versions of Webkinz!
To pair a buddy with your pet, just open the Dress Your Pet window. You’ll find any unpaired Pet Buddies in the clothing section of your Dock under their own sub-tab. They can be added to a pet the same way as a piece of clothing—by dragging one from your Dock to the Dress Your Pet window.
To remove a Pet Buddy, either drag it away from the window or add a different Pet Buddy to swap it. The swap feature also works by dragging and dropping directly into the room, or by dragging the Pet Buddy to your pet’s portrait.
If a Pet Buddy is already paired with a pet, you can find them easily by opening up My Pets. Any paired Pet Buddies will appear in the Pet Dock right above their heart. You can also see a larger version of the Pet Buddy when you preview the pet. Click or tap on the previewed pet and Pet Buddy to rotate them just like in the Dress Your Pet window.
Pet Buddies can still also be viewed in the Clubhouse and Coral Cove, but we’ve now removed the old Pet Buddy button that was there. If you want to switch the Pet Buddy paired with your pet, you’ll need to do it before you arrive at the Clubhouse.
Pet Buddies are also extra fun to interact with! Just click/ tap on one in the room or on the pet portrait to see how they react!
Looking to pick up some new buddies for your pet? Check out our selection of Pet Buddies at the Ganz eStore!
Please note that Pet Buddies are currently not available in the Kinzville Park, Adventure Park, or on the Map of Kinzville (because each uses their own unique room programming), but stay tuned to Webkinz Newz to be the first to know about any new updates!
