Is there anyway - a mod or via console - to make the dog stop barking all the time? Maybe it is not annoying to other people but I play a stealthy character. I realize that the NPCs may not hear the dog bark but I find it annoying when I'm B&E in a home, sneaking past the sleeping occupants only to hear my dog bark like he's trying to tell someone Timmy is in the well. When I sneak, my follower sneaks, at the least, the dog could be quiet. The same for the summoned companion that howls.

Again, I do realize that this is probably a problem for only a small group of people, but it resulted in me being unable to use the dog. If I could even just turn the dog volume down, that would help.

I play with headphones and I play with a large stereo system. To me the sound of a game (when I'm playing a stealthy character) is almost as important as the video. Perhaps a mod could be made by the Skyrim Modder Gods in which other animals can be used and be used quietly.

    Kill it. That will solve your problem – Liam McInroy Apr 11 '12 at 1:15

There are several, like Quiet Dog (total silence) and Quieter Dogs (lower volume). I haven't found any in the Steam Workshop thus far.

On a related note, I use zombies, which say "Uhh..." all the time. Quiet Zombies removes that.

  • Unfortunately, the mod Quiet Dog no longer exists. – Reginald Blue Oct 15 '20 at 21:05
  • For the PS4, there is the mod Quiet Dogs. For the XBox One, closest I could find is Dogs Of Skyrim which makes dogs quieter, but it's a complete overhaul of dogs. – Reginald Blue Oct 16 '20 at 12:55

You should tell it to wait over there and then attack. The dog will come to help!

  • How does this help? – user91193 Jul 24 '15 at 6:23
  • Yeah, wait over there and attack and get the dog to come help? What kind of answer is that there should of been down-votes. – Jim Oct 11 '15 at 18:04

Get the mod “Dog Followers Are Huskies”. No constant barking!!!
