Disney Dreamlight Valley players unable to feed or pet critters & other creatures after latest update (workaround inside)

Disney Dreamlight Valley has recently released an update that has caused a bug preventing players from feeding or petting critters and other creatures.

This issue is causing players to struggle with completing certain quests that require interaction with these animals.

Reports (1,2,3,4,5) of the issue have been flooding social media platforms for the past few days.

No I still can’t feed the critters for some reason so I’m still stuck on the quest where I have to feed the raccoons πŸ™

I love it but am unable to feed any animals… even ones not on the quests.

According to reports, the bug seems to have been caused by the new Training Manual introduced in the latest update.

The manual appears to have caused a conflict with the game’s animal interactions, making it impossible for players to feed or pet them.

Official acknowledgment

The bug has been acknowledged by Disney Dreamlight Valley support on Twitter.

The team is working on it! πŸ™Œ In the meantime, if you have the Training Manual item in your backpack, please try removing this item from the backpack & it should allow you to feed the critters once again. Let us know how it works out! πŸ’œ

The team is currently working on a fix, and players are advised to keep an eye on the game’s social media accounts for updates.

Official workaround

Besides acknowledging the issue, the support team has also provided a workaround for players to continue playing the game.

Some users also concurred that the workaround has helped them fix the issue.

HI I had the same problem until someone on here suggested to me that if you have a task manual in your backpack you will not be able to feed the pet put the manual into a chest and then try to feed your pets again I had the fishing book in my back pack and when i put it into a chest i was able to feed my pets again.

However, be aware that with this workaround, you may lose game progress, so it is essential to make sure that the game is saved before attempting this.

While this bug is causing issues for players, it is essential to note that bugs are common in mobile games.

Game developers work hard to identify and fix these bugs as quickly as possible, but some bugs may inevitably slip through the cracks.

That said, we hope that Gameloft readily fixes the issue where some Disney Dreamlight Valley players are unable to feed or pet critters at the earliest.
