About this mod

A simple 2-file animation fix that makes all dogs in the game shut the hell up, without leaving a noticeable silent bark animation.

Permissions and credits
This is a simple 2-file animation fix for all of the game's dogs. Put simply, it replaces the bark animations with other idle animations. As such, your dog companions will no longer bark constantly.

I made this mod because other "silent dog" mods only modified the sounds, thus creating a weird effect whereby your dog would visibly bark...but emit no noise. (note, this mod works fine with those sound edits, so if you want no barks + quieter general sounds, feel free to use both)

This should be compatible with pretty much all mods, as it overrides the game's base animations rather than editing any specific dog in the game.

The zip contains the following folder structure:


Extract the contents into your data folder, or manually recreate those folders and place the two animation files (dog_spice_bark.hkx and dog_spice_sit_bark.hkx) in the animations folder.

There should be no bugs, so if your dog is still barking while idling (either sitting or standing) you put the files in the wrong place :p
