    Or, even better, the pet simply roams wherever they want. I mean, if you accidentally leave your dog on roaming and it goes and falls into lava, it's your problem- you have to be careful. Anyways, it would be nice to just let your cats go wherever they want in your house, and let your dogs go free in your dog park. It would also be great for building maps- A dog park doesn't look very good if the dogs are sitting down and not moving.

    I suggested something similar to this, but specifically not as a new mode.

    I wish tamed cats could act like stray cats and just wander around the village

    I think dogs and cats should be able to wander wherever they want and it’s up to the player to keep them from running off. This will help kids be more responsible.

    I think the best way to implement it is simply a way to turn off the teleportation, and have them roam freely. This would work extremely well for making kennels, or bird houses, or cat houses. They would be infinitely more interesting if the animals moved around in them instead of simply sitting still

    i welcome more interaction/control over pets. to have them actually path around my house like they lived there would be great

    This would be good if pets didnt follow you, it would give a more realistic experience. And if you did want your pet to follow you... thats what leads are for! I just think them following you around everywhere is an unnecessary feature.

    it would make them look less lazy and forgotten. Maybe, just to be nice to people who don't want there pets to wander freely (as other people have been suggesting) they can only wander/roam freely in Hard and Hardcore mode.

    I have an idea for this too. Maybe, instead of them only being able to walk around 5×5 block spaces, they could go wherever, and if you wanted them to come back you could use some sort of a whistle, that makes them teleport back and start following you until you let them roam again!
