The Dog Guardian is particularly hard to deal with due to the fact it has a large amount of HP and does massive damage on contact. The Dog Guardian does not fire projectiles, so it's best dealt with from a distance.
These guardians slowly move around and after noticing the player they will jump towards them. This jump is much like the Snowbot's charge attack but while above ground they can bounce off walls. Your weapons don't push them back while they're jumping, so the best way to avoid them is to strafe to the side and keep shooting. They also destroy walls on landing.
The Dog Guardian creates an explosion upon death that can destroy walls but does no damage to the player, much like the other Guardians.
- This enemy replaced the Ghost Guardian in update #37.
- It doesn't have an idle animation.
