Are you annoyed that your trained pets follow their masters everywhere they go in dangerous situations?
Do your pets get killed by friendly fire and drives your colonist crazy and into berserk?

Better control your pets!

With this mod, you are able to designate trained pets if they should follow their master if they are drafted and/or on a hunt.
Pets wont waste usefull hauling time with wandering in front of their masters gun anymore.

Even if your pet handler is going to tame a dangerous animal, already trained pets can be designated to follow their master and defend him.

Only pets who are trained ( Obedience trained ) and have a master can be assigned.

There are three ways to set these options to pets. ( As shown in the screenshots )
1. By selecting the pet itself.
2. By the Architect -> Order menu
3. By animal tab

This mod is compatible with Fluffy's Animal Tab
You just need to ensure to load his Animal Tab Mod after PetFollow in the Modorder menu (Big thanks to Fluffy to make this possible)

No issues with other mods known (except ones that modify the animal tab (except Fluffy´s Animal Tab). See below)
The animal tab is only optional and not necessary, cause you have 3 options to designate your pets.
If you have another mod which alters the animal tab, you can define by mod order which animal tab you want.

Such a shame this hasn't and never will be updated despite the creator being active :c

I suppose I can dream.

@essentiality, you do realize the ability to make them no follow your colonists when drafted is an option in the vanilla game now right?? has been for a while now.

I hope this gets updated! Animals walking into terrible firefights is so lame.

@Shieldwall no need to update this mod cause it has been included in A16. You have the same options as petfollow gave you in the vanilla animal tab and fluffys animal tab.

But by default, following the master is enabled in vanilla as soon as you train them obediance. Petfollow did the opposite
