This mod allows the dog to tag along with the PC for most of the game as a fifth companion residing in the top-most available summon slot. (summon slots are mini-portraits that reside to the right of each NPC portrait.)
When presented with a party selection screen, if you do not choose the dog as one of your 4 primary companions, he will automatically appear next to the PC as a fifth companion after the selection screen goes away.
When present as a 5th party member, you can tell the dog to leave or call him back by using a new Dog Whistle item which will appear in your inventory after you aquire the dog as a companion.
While the mini-slot is normally used for summoned creatures, this mod manages the slot so that the dog is a full blown party member and not a simple summon.
All dialog options, banter and special events and abilities involving the dog will still work.
EXTRA: Summoned companions (Ranger abilities or Mage Animate Dead spell) will survive area transitions with this mod. However, they will still be removed if you return to camp.
