- This is the first pre-made LGBT couple in The Sims 4 and the second one in the series, after the Shear family in Roaring Heights from The Sims 3 Store.
- In promotional material for Cats & Dogs, the Hecking family also had a cat named Joaquin, which didn't make it into the final game.
- The family is a reference to a meme "they're good dogs Brent" from the Twitter user, WeRateDogsTM, who were tweeting to a user to the user @Brant about his complaints of giving illogical ratings to dog pictures.
- The family name "Hecking" is a reference to the common word @dog_rates would use to describe dogs.
- The lot the family lives on is called "It's A Good House" referencing the phrase "they're good dogs Brent".
- Brant and Brent are both names referred to the user @Brant, to which @dog_rates jokingly replied with their name as Brent instead.
