The Dog License is a consumable item that can be purchased from the Zoologist for 5 after filling out 25% (135 entries) of the Bestiary. Using it allows a Town Dog to move into town the next morning.

Upon use, the status message "The license teleports away to the dog delivery service..." is displayed.


  • Just like any other NPC, the Town Dog requires valid housing with proper size, background walls, a table, a chair, and a light source. However, it can share a house already occupied by another NPC, although not with another town pet.
  • Use a second Dog License after one has already been used will result in the exchange of the previous Town Dog.


  • Desktop 1.4.4: Town pets can now be exchanged by using another Pet License.
