iOS Swift 2.0 Protocols Creating Flexible Objects Using Protocols Protocol Inheritance

Type does not conform to protocol ...

hey folks, I don't understand how to fix the challenge. If anyone can explain would be appreciated. It's asking me to

"For the next step, create a struct named Dog that conforms to PetType. "

protocol AnimalType {
  var numberOfLegs: Int { get }

protocol PetType: AnimalType {
  var cuddlyName: String { get }

struct Dog: PetType {
  func bark() -> String {
    return "\(numberOfLegs)"

The problem is that your struct doesn't conform to the protocols AnimalType and PetType. You need to implement both stored properties:

struct Dog: PetType {
  var numberOfLegs: Int
  var cuddlyName: String

thanks jcorum, didn't know I can conform var, though as simple as it seems
