Stranded: Alien Dawn is an Early Access title that is still in development. As such, the current version does not represent the content of the final game. As a result, parts of this guide may become outdated/inaccurate as the title grows and evolves. Also, bugs and glitches can affect gameplay.

What breeds of dogs are in Stranded: Alien Dawn?

Stranded’s Train and Tame expansion introduces three new dog breeds to add to your camp. All are races that also exist in real life! So let’s look at the backgrounds of these breeds, shall we?


This breed originated in Germany and is often nicknamed “The Gray Ghost”. Weimaraners have a tall but streamlined build, a smooth, velvety coat, and an energetic focus. These traits make the Weimaraner a fantastic hunting dog and best friend!

German Mastiff

This breed is famous for its towering stature, which when standing on its hind legs towers over most dog breeds and humans. Their attitude has earned the Great Dane the nickname “Apollo of the Dogs”. Great Danes are lovable and affectionate dogs. However, they are not squeamish and defend their family with courage.


The boxer is known for his loyalty, athleticism, sense of humor and good looks. They are a short-haired, muscular breed that is medium to large in size. Boxers thrive particularly well when they come into contact with lots of people and animals while they are still puppies. When properly exposed, Boxers get along great with children!

How to find dogs

Many of the animal species in Stranded can adapt to warm and cold climates. So you can find them outside all year round. Unfortunately, this does not apply to dogs. Dogs only come out in the spring and summer months. In autumn and winter they cannot be seen, probably because of hibernation.

While it’s a shame that dogs can only be found for a short period of time, this gives you more time to prepare for adopting a dog. And since dogs have stricter requirements than other pets, more time is good.

How to tame dogs

Taming a dog follows the same protocol as any other animal. First of all, you need to study the technique of animal taming at the research table. Then you need to study the dog breed. After that, you need to find out the dog’s favorite food. Finally, and this is the most important part, you must provide the dog with housing and food before you tame it.

Because dogs are smaller than Drakka or Ulfen, you don’t need as many res to house them. For example, we skipped the shelter and set up a small sleeping space for our pup in our newly built home.

The hardest part of preparing for a new dog is adjusting the diet. Dogs are carnivores and will starve if you don’t fill their food with raw or dried meat. Also, her favorite treat is Jerky Jerky, so you’ll need to invest in a drying rack and dry some red meat before you approach a new dog.

The dogs in the world of Stranded are believed to be domesticated breeds from the survivors’ home planet, likely refugees from a crash-landed human spacecraft. So you won’t be dealing with a wolf-like predator. Also, if you fail to tame a dog, it will flee rather than attack.

Caring for the new dog

Dogs require the same daily care as other animals in your space colony. The survivors can still play with them, feed them, and heal them when they are sick. However, dogs have special needs that can have a significant impact on their upbringing.

A dog’s diet is a crucial element of their care. As we mentioned earlier, dogs are carnivores and do not eat plant-based foods. Therefore, their feed must always be filled with raw red meat, insect meat, jerky or, at worst, porridge. If they are not fed, the consequences are brutal. A starving berserker will not only harm the camp, but himself as well.

If a dog starts a fight with larger pets, especially if it’s untrained, it’s as good as dead. Even Ulfen, peaceful as they are, will fight back if provoked. Clear boundaries must therefore be drawn as to where dogs and farm animals eat and sleep.

For example, our first dog died after freaking out in an Ulfen shelter. The Ulfs quickly defended themselves and killed the pup. But the dog might have survived if it had romped around in a house with a human.

We never want our pets to starve. However, should an unfortunate circumstance arise, make sure one of the survivors has a pacifier. This tranquilizer will neutralize your dog, keeping him safe and sound asleep while your team searches for food.

Finally, dogs are one of the few trainable species in Stranded. Training teaches the dogs combat skills that may be necessary to defend the camp against attack. As long as a survivor has a farming skill level higher than the dog’s training level, they can train that dog. So, in order to further improve the dog’s skills, the survivors must continue their agricultural studies.
