Detailed Guide On Feeding Critters

There is much more in Disney Dreamlight Valley besides meeting the main characters, doing their tasks, farming, mining, and cooking. That is building a friendship with Animals in the valley and making them your companions, but how to feed animals is another question I will answer today.

My guide has made it easy for you as I have discussed all animal locations, their favorite food, and ways to get access so you can find your desired critter without difficulty.

Through feeding, you attain dream shards as a reward, and as I have mentioned earlier, you can make them buddies, but you have to feed them for two consecutive days because you can feed them once every day.

It is not simple to approach each critter, as some are less friendly than others. So, it would help if you had the right strategy to interact with them. Let’s dive into it.

Raccoons are active and well aware critters in Disney Dreamlight Valley.
