An achievement for just wearing one of each of the Witch Doctor specific items, which can be of any quality and easily attainable early into the game. I was able to unlock this early in Act I.

Puppet Master

Puppet Master

Have 7 pets and/or followers at the same time.
***Covered in the video below.

First take the Zombie Handler passive skill and summon yourself 4 zombie dogs, then bring your follower and then take the Fetish Army skill (lvl 30) and summon yourself fetishes to have 10 followers total at once. Optionally you can just use the Legion of Daggers rune with Fetish Army since that summons 8 of the little buggers all by itself.

Stop Hitting Yourself

Cause 30 enemies to kill each other while confused.

Something that will eventually happen pretty quickly with enough use of the Mass Confusion skill, made faster by finding lots of areas dense with enemies and leaving your follower and summons behind if you are really trying to get this out of the way ASAP.

Helpful tips to make this go faster:

  • Use the Paranoia rune for MC so they take more damage.
  • Use Grave Injustice with the Tribal Rites passive to help reduce cooldown.
  • Search the Keep Depths 2 on lower difficulties for groups of enemies.

Hotdogging
Hotdogging
Using sacrifice on a cluster of enemies to spawn 3 dogs at once.
Using sacrifice on a cluster of enemies to spawn 3 dogs at once.

Hotdogging

Summon 3 Zombie Dogs at the same time without using the Summon Zombie Dog skill.
***Covered in the video below.

With some of the patch changes, repairing the woefully underpowered Witch Doctor (Nevar Forget), making Circle of Life more useful now, it is relatively easy to take a skill like Firebomb with the Ghost Bomb rune (giving it a massive radius), find a large group of enemies in Act II on a difficulty you can easily one hit kill everything. From there, let yourself get swarmed and throw some of those Ghost Bombs to quickly take out large groups of enemies with a single hit. It will be helpful to try this with some items that increase your pickup radius to also increase the radius of circle of life, thus making sure more enemies can possibly turn into dogs. You can pick up cheap pickup radius gear on the AH or even better, if you can grab or already have a Thing of the Deep for its guaranteed +20 to pickup rad.

Alternatively you can still use the old method of the Sacrifice ability with the Next of Kin and the Circle of Life ability and start sacrificing your dogs near other enemies. There's a small chance all 3 dogs will resurrect just from the runed Sacrifice, since each has a 35% chance to do so, along with a 30% chance for each enemy killed in the blast. Taking the zombie Handler perk for this secondary method will help, giving you a fourth dog to increase the kill zone and chance of dog repop. This gives you a better chance for 3 dogs to spawn at once, but is a bit harder to do repeatedly because of cooldowns. You can try both methods simultaneously.

Not in Vain

Not in Vain

Kill 10 enemies with a single sacrifice.
***Covered in the video below.

Again the order of the day is to find large groups of incredibly weak enemies for your level to best accomplish this unless satisfied with letting it happen naturally if you find yourself using sacrifice a lot.

Go ahead and set yourself up with the Zombie Handler, Circle of Life and Pierce the Veil passives, for 4 dogs at once along with a 20% increase in damage. Good locations to search for large groups of enemies are in the Keep Depths 2, Skycrown Battlements, Bridge of Korsik and Fields of Slaughter or Arreat Crater level 2 in Act 3.Circle of Life will allow you to easily resurrect more dogs before your actual spell cool down has finished, making this much quicker.

It's important to note, it also seems that you need one dog to kill more than 10 enemies, as opposed to all of them collectively doing so, so you can optionally pass on Zombie Handler and dismiss all but one dog when doing this, however it's a little more fun, nor really that hard, using the above method.
