guard dog is an aggressive dog. Guard dogs drops bones. They can be slain for a 'dog' Slayer task assigned by a slayer master, yielding 49 Slayer experience per kill. For lower-level players, guard dogs can be tough to melee, as they can hit frequently, but these players can easily attack them from safe spots using ranged, magic, or long-range melee weapons like halberds. One safe spot is through the fence of the northeast side of the McGrubor's Wood (2). Another spot is behind the mushrooms located on the south-west corner of the wood. Players wielding a halberd can safely attack them from any side of the fence. The dogs respawn fairly quickly, so only 2-3 dogs that are close together will be sufficient to fulfil a slayer task. The west side of the Handelmort Mansion can be used as an easy way to melee the dogs, standing between the two dogs on the west side of the manison allows the aggressive dogs to attack you. Therefore having some food allows for quick resolution of a slayer task.

Guard dogs may also be purchased at level 74 Construction to guard a player's Dungeon, (see Guard dog (POH)).
