Solved [Bug] Pet blocking door/bed

Sorry to report this bug still persists in the game. Inside the starter house my dog fell asleep twice near the door right next to the plant and once near the bed blocking me from accessing the bed. Oh, and once he fell asleep right ON the bed! We were able to share the bed that time though.

iPad Pro
iPadOS 13.4.1
Game Ver 1.4.5.145

*SOLUTION*

Tap on your pet and hold. The pet will change its position and you will be able to pass.

If your pet blocks your path, just long press to have your farmer run against them- they'll move if you bump them enough times!

The pet sleeping on the bed is a feature. You can push him away by walking towards him. However, in your case, you might not be able to push him away yet since there's no area on his right side for him to move on. This also works for all villagers, which will let you pass through them.

That doesn’t seem to work for me, perhaps because I’m playing on iOS and use tap to move around?

Yeah I figured bed sleeping must be a new feature since it happened again :)

You know, possible quick solution for this would be to reset sleeping pet’s position every time a player enters a house. This way if the pet blocks a bed, we can just exit the house and enter again and hopefully have a path cleared.

I’m here to report that the problem still exists even on a second farm I started.

This is new. This time I couldn’t get into the bed AT ALL, no matter how many times I tapped on it. Turns out the dog was sleeping UNDER the bed - I saw its Zzz bubble right before I passed out. Well, at least life with the pet is not boring 🙂

(On the Switch) I've had my spouse block me from leaving the house and watering the crops on the first day of spring Year 4 because he thought it was more important to complain about the farm not being clean after I spent all day tilling the field. No idea if that falls into this category of a bug or was absolutely intentional as a sign of angry NPC rebellion :D

This doesn't work on mobile, but on PC and console you can just walk into a villager and pet and you'll eventually move through them :)

Yes, that usually works when I'm outside. It did not work in this case, prolly been steamrolling against Seb for about an hour on ingame time and he would NOT move from the spot like he was frozen there for 4 hours (including me going to the cellar, getting out of the cellar in hope of a reset) before I decided to give up and just go to bed without watering my crops. If I lose money this month it's gonna be husbando's fault 😂

Finally, FINALLY, got this to work! You tap ON your pet and hold it. Tap and hold. The pet then switches its position and you are able to pass.

By the way, these tricks don't work if you're on your horse. If you laid out narrow paths on a crowded farm or your pet just blocks your way out of town, you just have to wait.
