At first sight, Hellhounds might seem cute, especially with the MW3 pet dog feature, but their surprise attacks in MW3 Zombies Doghouses can be a real headache. And when you stumble upon those doghouses, you’re left wondering, “What’s the deal with them?”
Well, here’s the lowdown on what to do with doghouses in MW3 Zombies.
What exactly is the MW3 Zombies Doghouse and how to get MW3 pet dog achievement?
In the early stages of the Zombies mode in Modern Warfare 3, the community is buzzing about the discovery of Doghouse spawn locations. This marks a unique moment in Call of Duty history, where players can command Hellhounds to join them in the pursuit of souls. Befriending these hellish companions not only unlocks a trophy for players who can pet them but also proves to be a valuable strategy for enhanced safety in the undead-infested Urzikstan. These loyal zombie dogs accompany you across the entire map, even in vehicles, actively attacking nearby enemies and offering revival assistance in exchange for minor portions of their health.
You can spice things up with the doghouse in Modern Warfare 3 Zombies by tossing in a Chunk of Flesh. This nifty move lets you recruit a temporary Hellhound ally. For the Low-threat zone, a single meaty offering will suffice, but things get meatier for the higher tiers (Medium needs two, and High demands three.)
Once that Chunk of Flesh is in place, brace yourself as a Hellhound bursts out of the doghouse, ready to join your squad. Keep an eye on the green health bar above the dog – that signals its friendly status, similar to the Brain Rot ability.
These Hellhounds stick around, helping you out as long as their health holds up. Sadly, you can’t take them home after exfiling, but they’re your loyal companions, taking down enemies and even reviving you or your teammate. Playing solo? These four-legged allies have got your back.
All MW3 Zombies Doghouse locations
As of the current moment, it seems that there are 16 potential locations in Urzikstan where Doghouses can spawn, allowing players to enlist Hellhounds as allies. Highlighted by CoD Zombies content creator MysteryHQ, all 16 of these locations have been verified to have the possibility of randomly spawning a Doghouse in the game.

If these Doghouses materialize, a Doghouse icon will pop up on your mini-map when you’re in proximity, though it won’t appear on your full map. Additionally, as players progress through their sessions, Doghouses may also emerge in later stages, making it worthwhile to revisit these areas more than once in a single game.
MysteryHQ has also brought attention to a potential issue: recruiting a Hellhound while zombies are still present in the vicinity might lead to glitches. Therefore, players should ensure they’re in a zombie-free zone before attempting to recruit these furry companions.
Getting a Chunk of Flesh
Wondering where to find that Chunk of Flesh? The LT53 Kazimir is your go-to – use it on zombies, and it’ll pull them toward a Dark Aether, possibly dropping some delicious flesh. Grab the Tactical from caches or objectives, and you’re good to go.
Collect as much Chunk of Flesh as you can, but keep in mind, you can’t carry it through the exfil. MW3 Zombies limits the number of collectibles you can save.
Unlocking the ‘You Can Pet The Dog’ achievement
Want to give that dog a virtual pat? Wait for the Hellhound to sit when there are no enemies around. Some dogs might not sit, so be patient and try again. Clear the area before dropping the Chunk of Flesh in the doghouse to increase your chances.
Once the pup sits, hit the ‘Pet the Dog’ interaction to bag the Deadman’s Best Friend and You Can Pet The Dog achievements.
From discovering doghouse locations to obtaining the Chunk of Flesh, these elements are vital to survival strategy in the undead world. Keep an eye on the mini-map, explore spawn points, and enjoy the companionship of your four-legged allies in the battle against relentless zombie hordes.
