Adding Dogmeat as a Companion

When playing Fallout 4, Dogmeat is the first companion you can add to your team. You will have the opportunity to find the dog at the beginning of the game after leaving Vault 111 and arriving at Sanctuary during the Out of Time main quest. Travel to the south-east from Sanctuary, and you will soon reach the Red Rocket Truck Stop as shown in the image above.

Find the dog and interact with it.

After arriving at the truck stop, you will notice a dog in the distance. Approach the dog, pet it, and allow it to follow you. Dogmeat will become your companion from that moment. You can provide the dog with simple commands, use it in combat, and order it to go on treasure hunts. You can send Dogmeat back to Sanctuary or any other settlement at any time.
