How to Find Dogmeat in Fallout 4
Dogmeat is the first companion you’ll come across on your adventure in Fallout 4. The adorable dog is a great companion that can help you take down enemies, as well as hold them still to allow you to shoot them with greater accuracy using VATS. However, with the Commonwealth being so big, there are times where Dogmeat can go missing, and in those circumstances, you’ll want to know where to find him.
If Dogmeat does ever go missing in Fallout 4, you’ll want to first go and check the Red Rocket Diner. A number of players report that Dogmeat will be waiting here for you to return should you end up being separated in the vast Commonwealth.
Should Dogmeat not be waiting for you at Red Rocket Diner, you’ll also want to try building a dog house. It turns out that he will respawn here should he die or get lost while out on a quest. We suggest only having one dog house, however, so you know exactly where you need to head should you and your canine companion get separated. There are two dog houses in Sanctuary Hills, so if you want Dogmeat spawning somewhere else in Fallout 4, you’ll want to get rid of those first.
If you’re on PC and this still hasn’t worked, fear not, you still have an option. You can bring your canine friend to your side with the help of a quick and handy console command. First, open the command console by pressing Tilde (~) and then enter the following “player.moveto 0001d162.” Press Tilde again once you’ve entered this and you should find the trusty German Shepherd right by your side in Fallout 4 once more.
