Scent hound not working in joined MP games

Bug Report
Game Mode: MP

When I joined a friends open MP game, sometimes my scent hound does not work. Though it says he is equipped in my inventory, he will not appear on the game and I cannot use him. I have had sometimes where he did work of a friends map, but most of the time he doesn't. If I open a MP game on my own map, I have no problems, but sometimes my friends do.

Steps to Reproduce:
Join a Different persons MP hunt
Equip scent hound

My Computer
Platform: Dell
OS & Version: Win7 , 64bit

I've observed this as well. Sometimes on someone else's map, the scent hound works, sometimes he doesn't. I haven't tried to confirm whether this also happens with the retriever.

FWIW, if your scent hound is equipped with a backpack, you still have access to anything you put in it. You just don't have access to the dog himself. I can also confirm that it's never an issue when I am host, only when I am guest.

I can confirm that Bug too.

If join as Guest to my friends Map (he was Host), i can equip my Dog and can have access to his bag, but the Dog itself doesn't appear and Dog-Menu (V-Menu) doesn't work.

Same if my friend join as Guest to my Map. He can equip the dog, but his Dog doesn't appear and his Dog-Menu doesn't work.

Our Solution-Tries:
    It doesn't matter if the Guest joins at Lodge or Tent, the guests Dog do not appear/spawn.
    Bug counts for Scentdog and Retriever.
    Enter and exit a Trophy-Lodge does not fix the Bug.
    Fast-traveling between Lodges does not fix it too.
    Uneqip the Dog ... leave (save) Inventory ... re-enter Inventory ... equip Dog ... leave (save) Inventory >> does not fix the Bug.
    Starting without dog and equipping dog after joining the Game as Guest >> does also not fix the Bug.

So this Bug is still actual.
