Genre: Simulation - Animal competitions

Group Description

Games that simulate the breeding, care, and training of one or more show animals, as well as the process of entering them into competitions. These games are often also pet simulations by default; however, the gameplay of games in this group typically aims more towards simulating the hard work and complexities of the trainer-animal relationship, rather than simply caring for a housepet. Features common to the genre are inheritance-based breeding, RPG-like stat systems, and time management elements.

If the competitions featured in the game are battles, the game likely belongs in the group Gameplay feature: Monster capture / training, and not this one. However, it is possible for games to belong to both these groups, if the monster raising elements exist alongside the simulation gameplay style outlined above.
