Fallout 4 Companion Tip

Dog Meat, is the best of all!  Your dog doesn’t count as a companion for the Perk Lone Wanderer.  Once maxed out, this perk will have you take 30% damage, increase your damage by 20%, and give you 100 more pounds to carry. Dog Meat can still join you to spot chests, attack enemies, and create a distraction.  From a pure performance standpoint, consider Dog Meat and Lone Wanderer a must-have combination.
