Dragons To Puppies – The Virtual Pet Craze

Usually in the normal world, your choice of using an animal comes from the traditional selection of animals. Dogs, hamsters, birds, cats, cats and dogs are the most common. In the new age of online games, a very popular way is to use wild animals through online sites.

What is the advantage of having a wild animal rather than a normal animal? Because you are not allowed to choose from one of the usual choices of animal species. Many sites offer the option to choose from fictional characters such as dragon pets or other crafts!

The maintenance of normal pets is very small compared to a normal pet which explains why the popularity of the sites that offer them has grown rapidly. The choice to use imaginary or magical creatures such as dragon animals is very interesting that ordinary animals cannot compete with. Real life controls are daily tasks that require constant attention and care while virtual controls are not a problem. An added bonus is that if your child gets tired of a wild animal you won’t have to spend a lot of money.

So this sounds like a great idea but how do you go about getting your own virtual pet? There are many options to choose from if you only Google. Usually you will find a website where you can sign up for a free user account and choose from a selection of animals. There are many different websites catering to different tastes and preferences. There are WooPets, NeoPets, Hawrse to name a few. Quality often varies from site to site but most of these sites are run by successful web companies.

In DragCave for example, you choose from a group of abandoned dragon eggs and you have to take care of your virtual dragon pet until it falls. They allow you to breed more wild animals through a breeding feature. This is very interesting because you can trace the entire genealogy of your virtual dragon pet from the beginning.

VirtualPups is another site that allows you to breed, train and compete with your very own dog that you care for. There are many options depending on the type of pet you want.

It is highly recommended that if you allow your children to access these sites they do not fill out personal information or use in-game chat features to ensure the game experience is safe and enjoyable. Please review the COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) compliance of any pet site your child may visit.

Now the next time your child asks to visit a pet store and you don’t want to put in a real animal, why not try using a virtual pet instead?
