Found the dog in a level and wondering what to do with it? This guide on What To Do With The Dog In Spelunky 2 explains what you must do with the dog in order to benefit from finding it while you’re exploring the randomly generated levels.
Spelunky 2 provides players with near endless adventures thanks to randomly generated levels that change each time you play the game. While many of the obstacles, challenges, and enemies will remain the same, the actual layout is always different. As such, we cannot tell you where to find the dog but you will find him on most levels, relatively easily. If you don’t, don’t worry about it, I’m sure you’ll find it on the next attempt.
What Does The Dog Do In Spelunky 2
The Dog is one of the many different items you can find on your journey. Sometimes it’s simply sitting in the open, other times it requires bombs or ropes to reach. When you reach the dog you need to pick it up. To pick up the dog, stand over it and press Down & Square (PS4). This will pick up the dog.
When you are carrying the dog you can no longer use your whip or any other items so be careful. You can throw the dog like any other item but it may eventually die. You need to carry the dog with you through to the very end of the level. When you reach the exit, the dog will automatically jump down and go through the door. You can continue exploring if you wish, safe in the knowledge that the dog is safe and will remain there until you complete the level.
When you eventually finish the level the dog will give you, and your partners if you’re playing co-op, a loving lick. This provides +1 health. This can both restore lost health or boost you over your starting health so you have even more HP.
