** In At the Mountains of Madness, the expedition's dogs go nutzo over the strange beings they found frozen in a cave under the glacier. [[spoiler: PROTIP: they're aliens (kinda) capable of ''extremely'' long periods of hibernation.]]
** In ''The Whisperer in Darkness'', Henry Akeley's guard dogs can detect the presence of the Mi-Go when Akeley himself can't, and have an instinctive aggression towards them. As a result, [[ProperlyParanoid he surrounds himself with them both at home and when traveling.]]
** {{Lampshaded}} in ''Rats in the Walls'', though it was a cat rather than a dog.
-->"I realize how trite this sounds- like the inevitable dog in the horror story which always growls before his master sees the sheeted figure- yet I cannot suppress it."

** Dogs are some of the most annoying NPCs in the game, and not just because they can sniff you out. Dogs count as witnesses if you kill someone in front of them, so inexperienced players may get tripped up by them. Also, [[SerendipityWritesThePlot since it would've been too hard to create an animation model of 47 dragging them around]], you can't dispose of dog bodies, making it harder to go undetected.

* ''VideoGame/HauntingStarringPolterguy'': The family's dog (a very ugly chihuahua) can detect poltergeist Polterguy and will bark at him to make his gauge of ectoplasma drop. He also can calm down the family members so you have to scare them again. The only thing Polterguy can do against the dog is using a magic spell (found in the underworld) to give him food.
