I'm playing a stealth (sniper) character and at the moment have Dogmeat as my companion, but I have to tell him to stay behind a lot because he gets spotted or gets in the way a lot.

Is any of the other companions more compatible with a stealth character?

In FO:NV I used Boone when travelling outside, since he would usually be able to shoot from our position instead of moving forward and attracting even more enemies.

    The archetype sounds more like you'd not want a companion, and take the Lone Wanderer perk instead. – David Yell Dec 11 '15 at 8:52
  • @David Yell, lone wanderer is a perk that supports using Dog(meat), which appears to be against OPs request. – user106385 Dec 11 '15 at 15:11

According to the wiki Deacon is the companion with the highest natural sneak skill.

If you equip him with a sniper rifle, he will have the same range as you.

    His perk is also stealth related, which can be useful. – Autar Dec 11 '15 at 10:33
