You will get your first pet on Sumdog once you complete the diagnostic.

You can complete the diagnostic by clicking ‘Start’ on your dashboard when it says ‘Getting to know you’. Ask your teacher or parent if you are not sure how to complete the diagnostic.

How to get another pet after your first one

Your pet will learn a new trick each time you master a skill on Sumdog. You can do this by playing games in Training mode.

After your pet has learnt all of its tricks you will be awarded a new pet once you complete the next skill.
