How to make dogs breed

I have been trying to encourage my dog to breed with others but they always hate each other (the stop signs in fought bubble ) I have tried so many dogs already! Is there a trick to make them breed? Thanks.

    I actually had this problem yesterday, but I never really found a full proof solution. It took me over twenty times to get them to finally breed, and that’s a generous estimate amount. Other simmers say command your pet to “Be nice to...” in order to increase their relationship with one another, but that command never showed for me even when my sims were companions with their pets.

    Persistence is the only solution I found, but I’ll be interested in what others have to say.

    So far, I've only really been successful if 1: the female is "in heat" (has the little hearts popping up, is howling a lot) and 2: both dogs or cats are in my household. I've never successfully bred with an "outside" or visiting pet or stray. Now, if I want to keep puppies around, I adopt two pets, one male and female, check in once in a while to make sure they're not fighting or anything, and then when the female goes into heat, encourage BOTH of them to mate with each other. That usually seems to work, and I've had about 5 successful pet pregnancies, with 3 different pairings, so far using that method.

    I've only had success when my cats/dogs are in a good (i.e. green) mood, even when in heat. If they're neutral or red, they'll just rebuff the other animal's advances.

    Just shower them with affection first until you get the "Feel the Love" interaction. If the animal has food available, it should be pretty easy to get them happy with just social interactions. They don't have complicated needs like human sims.

    I don't even have the "be nice to..." choice available when I tell my cats to breed.
