A guard dog is an aggressive dog. Guard dogs drops green charms and Bones. They can be slain for a 'dog' Slayer task assigned by a Slayer Master. For lower-level players, guard dogs can be tough to melee, as they can hit frequently, but these players can easily attack them from safe spots using ranged, magic, or long-range melee weapons like Halberds. One safe spot is through the fence of the north side of the McGrubor's Wood. Another spot is behind the mushrooms located on the south-west corner of the wood. Players wielding a halberd can safely attack them from any side of the fence.
