Attack Patterns

  • Always begins with a leaping bite. Unless blocked, the dog will trot away before resuming its attacks.
  • At close range, the dog bites multiple times with no precursor animations.


You'll hear the kennel barking before you see them. They rush you as a group, which can make them very tough if you aren't prepared. One strategy is to use the Thief's Ring and lure them out one at a time with ranged attacks/items(such as the pack of throwing knives near the beginning of 1-2). Another strategy is to run back to the doorway leading to the first tower and taking them on in the narrow space one at a time. Remember that spears can be used to attack while your shield is raised. Or lock on to the lead dog and do a strong R2 attack just before it jumps at you. You'll skewer the lead dog and the one following it.
