Pet dogs were released with the Summoning skill on 15 January 2008. It only requires level 4 (for this is the minimum Summoning level after the quest Wolf Whistle) Summoning, and can be used throughout the Runescape world. Players may only own one dog or puppy at a time. Breeds include a Labrador, Dalmatian, Greyhound, Sheepdog, Terrier and a Bulldog. Your pet dog grows hungry over periods of time without feeding. It grows physically over time (when you take it out). Feeding your dog raw meats such as raw beef, raw bear meat, raw rat meat, and raw beast meat (Raw Fish of anykind won't be eaten) will cure its hunger by resetting its hunger level to 0%. Feeding your dog bones will not decrease its hunger level.
To get your dog to follow you, you will need to right-click and select the drop option. To pick it back up, you need to either left-click, or right-click and select the pick-up option.
Pet dogs (like other pets) provide the player with no benefits.
