I just bought the scent hound for a companion. I don't need it to hunt but I love dogs and enjoy having him with me. He seemed well behaved right from the beginning.

One question. Are there any other times I can give him a treat other than when he finds an animal?

I only have the other two dogs, but as far as I know it should be possible after any command it understood.

One improvement would be that the dog can track wounded animals in viicnity without having to show the first track like in cotw

At level 20 could not track an animal that was 50 meters away from the blood track...
That is how I see dogs also never use them now

Plus at level 20 their Tracking Focus, Tracking Footprints and Tracking Distance aren't anywhere near max.
I´ll keep levelling it, although my experience so far isn't very good with this dog, maybe I'm biased after having levelled up the awesome german pointer.


Mine is lv46 and still sometimes loses the track if the bleeding stop, and sometimes it loses track even from arrow shots(permanent bleeding), the difference is that he is able to regain the tracking of the arrows. The scent hound has is usefulness but is more a quality of life than a real tracker, it may save you some minutes of tracking, but where it shines for me is when the track is lost in terrain, sometimes the track clues get hidden half glitched below the ground, rocks,etc making almost impossible to see them other than by sheer luck(very rare but happens) the dog can see it anyway and save you in those situations. but for the most part... My scent hound is a mule for extra equipment and weapons :lol:
