Fallout 4 has many obscure mods and there really is no end to them. Here comes another one in the line.
Be The Dog – Playable Dogs, a mod created by Abbalovesyou, lets you play as a dog in Fallout 4 game. Either you will take the role of the award winning Dogmeat or you play as some of the other dogs you meet as enemies of the Commonwealth.
As a dog you have two different ways to bite on and two “power attacks” – one where you jump and slash and the one where you run and chop. You can equip any dog gear compatible with you anytime, as long as they are not marked as “unavailable” for you.
Also, you have a Pip-Boy on and you can even recruit Dogmeat as companion. Two dogs are always better than one, as well.
However, there are a couple of drawbacks. Pip-Boy, for example, are not shown up in the first person and you need to either return to human form before the intro sequence ends or load a saved game outside of Vault 111 to avoid crasher.
