Your New Pet Dog


Thank you for adopting your new pet dog! Your furry friend is very eager to meet you!

In addition to being a faithful companion who will happily follow you all over Tyria, your dog is also capable of performing several neat tricks. They know a couple of commands already, and you should be able to teach them even more over time.

With enough patience, love, and affection, we're certain you two will become the best of friends in no time.

Quotes[edit]

  • That's my dog.
  • Who's a good pup?
  • Sit.
  • Speak.
  • Lay down.
  • Shake.
  • Roll over.

Notes[edit]

  • While the pet is active, the player has the effect My Basenji Buddy.
  • Can only learn one skill a day. Progress is accountbound. The pet starts out with the first two abilities.
  • It takes approximately ten interactions to learn a new skill.
  • Sometimes the dog will not execute a command and instead “snap” at its owner while a breaking heart symbol animation is visible above its head.
  • Stowed while gliding.
  • Cannot mount while the pet is active.
  • Can be used underwater and in WvW.
  • Neither of the mails will be received if the novelty was acquired as a gift.
  • Players cannot interact with NPCs while the whistle is in use.
