Dark Souls 3 Dogs


  • A lone hound is found on the path to the right of Firelink Shrines entrance, guarding an Ember.
  • A pair of hounds can be found pacing along the alternate path that leads from the High Wall of Lothric bonfire to the first Pus of Man.
  • A trio of hounds are set loose through a gate by a Peasant Hollow at the beginning of the level to devour all other lesser hollows in the area.
  • Two more are found feasting on a corpse behind a broken carriage located in the opposite direction of said gate.
  • About four hounds can be found scattered along the big open area in front of the Curse-rotted Greatwoods boss room, one of them guarding the entrance to the sewers where Irina is held captive.
  • Two hounds are hidden behind a house after crossing the stone bridge that leads to the Giant Archers tower. They guard some Alluring Skulls.
  • A couple of hounds can be found in a hidden path located below a cliff before reaching the Halfway Fortress, one being a special variant that boasts a bloated stomach and has the ability to spit poison and perform a special grab attack.
  • A lone hound is found besides its hollow owner near the far-end shore of the marshlands.
  • Another hound can be found ready to ambush the player if they attempt to pick up a Fading Soul found near the Crucifixion Woods bonfire.
  • Five hounds are scattered along the landscape after walking past the exterior gate of the cathedral. Three crossbow-wielding Devouts are also positioned on the upper ledges to provide ranged support.
  • Several hounds are scattered along the initial area of this level. All of them are initially found lying down and will only attack if provoked or if the player walks near them.
  • Strategy[]

    Although they have low vitality, Starved Hounds are agile creatures that will often evade attacks and retaliate with a leaping bite. They are weak against fire and will writhe around in agony if set alight, which offers an opportunity to attack them unmolested.

    They are also notoriously frail, and if attacked with enough force, they will be sent flying back and knocked down. Depending on the situation, this can be either an advantage or a disadvantage, as they can be momentarily disabled and give the player a breathing room, or perhaps it may be more convenient to defeat them as quick as possible to prevent other enemies from gathering.

    These enemies are found in various locations throughout the game, often placed for an element of surprise. It is difficult to avoid them, particularly for new players, so it is advised to get some distance first as fighting them in packs is not recommended. Their strength lies in numbers, and fighting them one at a time should be somewhat easier despite their speed.

    Relentless, rabid and fuelled by bloodlust, these hounds will avidly even chase their own shadow, stopping at nothing. Despite their thinly-graven figures, often lurking or just dimly shadowing the oblique steps of Lothric, they will shred the unwary Ashen to pieces until he or she is no more. When met in packs, these Hounds are opponents of considerable aggression, and will eagerly ambush to dire consequences.


    Do dogs teleport in Dark Souls 3?

    Tactics – you need to hang around the underbelly of the giant dog. Corner him if possible. When he rushes, dodge and get underneath the underbelly again. When he is about to spray frostbite, hit him with ranged attacks, preferably soul bolt.
