This Skyrim Glitch Is Every Dog Lover's Dream

If you're a dog lover that also enjoys playing "The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim," then a newly discovered glitch is exactly what you've been waiting for.

Released in 2011, "The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim" has stood the tests of time and has remained one of the most popular video games on the market. Even if the game well over a decade old at this point, there is something to be said about a game that makes still makes headlines years after its initial launch by simply being made available for free on PlayStation consoles. Without a doubt, "Skyrim" is the crown jewel of the "Elder Scrolls" series. And with "Elder Scrolls 6" still being in early development, fans of the franchise have had to find a way to make do with the most recent entry into the series, "Skyrim." This includes making the most of its cutest component — dogs.


In "Skyrim," dogs are pretty much like their real-life counterparts. They are generally mild-mannered, can be befriended, and will bark to the high heavens. However, one "Skyrim" player recently discovered a glitch that doubles down on the cuteness and spawns a massive herd of dogs that canine lovers are sure to appreciate.

A glitch in Skyrim fills the room with dogs

On the "Skyrim" subreddit, a user by the name of u/ARXEUS_ posted an image in which the room they were standing in was flooded with dogs. Apparently, this was the result of a glitch where a dog is searching for a master, but the player delays making their decision as to whether or not they will take the dog in. "If you delay it too long, another doggo comes with the same request and the previous one becomes completely fixed at Castle Dawngaurd and the cycle goes on," Arxeus said in response to a question about the glitch's origin. As noted by GameRant, the glitched dogs seem to be duplicates of Scoelang and Bran.


In response to the glitch, many on Reddit seemed elated. "All you need now is a sled," one Redditor remarked. Another comment alluded to the need for a mod to give dogs in "Skyrim" treats. One commenter — who was so happy they typed in all caps — demanded a mod where they could pet all the good doggos in "Skyrim." "I usually take out restoration spells on both hands and frantically move the cursor up and down. I want something to actually pet them," the user said.
