There are so many things to do in Breath of the Wild. Even though the goal is to defeat Calamity Ganon, the world is so large and there are so many other fun things to do that it can be pretty tough to stay on task. Luckily, Zelda did just fine holding Ganon back while Link was snow bowling and finding all 800 Korok seeds.
Unfortunately, one thing that we can't do in Breath of the Wild is have a pet dog. There are dogs in the villages and at the stables around Hyrule, but we can't keep one as a pet at our house in Hateno Village. Sad, right? But anyone who has played this game will know that you can give treats to the dogs. And if you do, they'll lead you to a super awesome buried treasure. To see where all the dogs in the game are located (and what their treasures are!), keep reading.
14 Hateno Village: Silver Rupee
Hateno Village is a peaceful village found in the eastern part of Hyrule. Players find their way here fairly early on in the game for a quest that leads them to Purah at the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab.
Hateno village also has a white dog that the player can feed meat to in order to befriend. After befriending the dog, it will lead Link to a treasure chest with a silver rupee inside.
13 Serenne Stable: Gold Rupee
Serenne Stable is located near Hebra Tower in the Great Hyrule Forest. Maag No'rah Shrine is in the area, but don't forget about feeding the dog before you leave this stable!
This stable is also home to a dog that Link can befriend by giving it food. After giving the black dog food, Link will be lead to a treasure chest with a gold rupee inside.
12 Wetland Stable: Opal
Wetland Stable is located in the Lanayru Region of Hyrule. Pikango is here to give Link a clue about a photo and there's one side quest that begins here. Inside the stable, Link can find the recipe for Electro Elixir.
After giving food to the dog at this stable, it will guide Link to a buried treasure that contains an opal. Great for selling to get some quick rupees or for upgrading armor!
11 Kara Kara Bazaar: Knight's Bow
Kara Kara Bazaar is located in the Gerudo Wastelands and is an important part of the game for a lot of reasons. But while doing quests and making purchases, make sure to stop and befriend the dog that is located here!
Inside the treasure chest the dog takes Link to, there's a Knight's Bow. Also hidden in the area is a chest Link can pull from the sand with his Magnesis Rune in order to reveal a purple rupee.
10 Tarrey Town: Bomb Arrow x5
Tarrey Town is a village located in the middle of Lake Akkala in the Akkala Region.
Like other settlements in the game, Tarrey town has a dog that Link can befriend with food. After feeding the black dog, the dog will take Link to a treasure chest. Inside the treasure chest, Link will find five bomb arrows. Really handy for taking on Divine Beast Vah Naboris!
9 Snowfield Stable: Star Fragment/Feathered Spear
Snowfield Stable is a special stable in that there are actually two dogs that can be fed. Put on your cold weather gear and bring the meat because they're both very worth it. This stable is located in the snow-covered Hebra Region.
After befriending the white dog on the left side of the stable, Link will be lead to a treasure chest with a star fragment inside. The black dog on the right side will take Link to a treasure chest with a Feathered Spear inside.
8 Highland Stable: Silver Rupee

This stable also has a dog that will lead Link to treasure if he feeds it. After finding the chest, Link can open it and reveal a silver rupee inside! Now hunt down Chumin and spend it!
7 East Akkala Stable: Shock Arrow x10
East Akkala Stable is a stable located in the Akkala Region, on the road to the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab. Inside the stable is a recipe for Meat and Rice Bowl and outside, there's a dog to feed.
Following the dog to the buried treasure will reward Link with 10 elemental shock arrows.
6 Lurelin Village: Star Fragment
Lurelin Village is a tropical, coastal village located in the Faron Region. The player has to have a sharp eye to find the dog in Lurelin Village because it's actually hidden under a house.
But if you drop food, the dog will come out and you can keep feeding it until it leads Link to a treasure chest. Inside, Link will find a Star Fragment! Hold onto it for armor upgrades.
5 Outskirt Stable: Silver Rupee
Outskirt Stable is located in the southwestern area of Central Hyrule. Inside, Link can discover the recipe for Energizing Honey Crepe.
