A Dog's Life is a Secondary Quest in The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt. Secondary Quests are optional Quests not required to finish the game. Some of these quests may have a bearing on certain Main Quests or may be a consequence of another Quest.

A Dog's Life can be obtained by approaching a dog being attacked by a pack of wolves on the road between the Boatmakers' Hut and Drudge in Velen. After saving the dog, it urges Geralt to follow it. This quest will fail if you stray too far from the area once you have it. 

 

When Geralt saw a dog which was clearly someone's beloved pet surrounded by a pack of starving wolves, he could not help but interfere and save the poor animal's life. The wolves slain, he petted the dog to calm it and discovered there was a key sewn into its collar.

The Witcher 3 A Dog's Life Notes & Trivia

  • If initially arriving at Drudge via boat and not running into the dog the bandits will not spawn within Drudge, because of this the player will be free to roam and will still be able to access the quest if they ride the road leading north.

      How can the quest "A Dogs Life" bug be fixed? I've reloaded many saved games I have and yet I cannot access the note needed to complete the quest. I followed the dog and defeted the bandits but when I search the abandoned house with my Witcher Senses and loot the chest it doesn't give me the items I need.

      I would love to finish this quest without starting the whole game over 1 certain thing.
      All help would be appreciated, thanks in advance
