How to Get a Dog in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town

Wondering how to get an adorable pet dog in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town? Here’s everything you need to know.

As much as you might want a dog inĀ Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town straight away, you’ll need to wait a while unfortunately. You’ll need a couple of upgrades first.

Before you can buy a dog, you’ll need to have unlocked a travelling shopkeeper called Van. Unlocking Van takes quite a bit of work. He won’t appear until you’ve given the Harvest Goddess 30 gifts. You do this by tossing a gift into the river by the hot springs. Once you’ve handed over enough gifts, Van will come to visit you at your farm.

Once he starts appearing in your game, you’ll find him in the plaza on the 15th day of each season. He’ll be there between 12pm and 6pm, and you can buy a selection of pets.

However! Van only appears if the weather is sunny. If it’s raining, he won’t be there, so you’ll have to wait until the next month.

Pets cost in the region of 10,000G to buy, so they’re not cheap. Make sure you’ve got enough coins saved up by the 15th of the month if you’re wanting to get a dog in Friends of Mineral Town.
