How to feed your dog in Potion Permit
Some may find this confusing as you can't just interact with them normally, you have to call them first, then interact. Without the first step, you'll just seemingly have a very stubborn dog.
On the bottom left-hand corner of the screen, you will see a small dog icon. Under this will be a prompt (it is R2 on PlayStation). This will call the dog to you. Just walk them and interact with them to pull up a menu, allowing you to feed or pet the pooch.
How does the Potion Permit dog work?
Now that you know how to feed the dog in Potion Permit, it's time to learn why you should feed the dog in Potion Permit.
First, he will follow you whenever you go outside. This means he will not go inside any of the houses. If you want to interact with him, it will have to be done outside
Like everyone in Potion Permit, he needs to be interacted with quite a lot. You will spot a small icon at the bottom of a chicken drumstick depleting. This is a sign he can take food. There don't seem to be many negative effects from not feeding him so this is likely just an indication his friendship bar can go up.
How to increase friendships in Potion Permit
Friendships dominate the world of Potion Permit. You can talk to villagers every single day after the short tutorial is over. This will increase your friendship bar just a little each time.
You can also opt to give villagers gifts, seeing the bar go up much higher at the expense of your time and money hunting one down.
How to get food for your dog
You can buy food from the tavern but the most reliable way of feeding your dog is by harvesting mushrooms in the forest. These will satiate your dog for some time and are entirely free. Harvest them every day for a few days and you shouldn't have to hunt down any more food for a while.
