Invincible Dog Friend cheat for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Invincible Dog Friend

If you find yourself at Falkreath, speak to Lod. Once you accept the task of finding his dog, Barbas, go outside the village and you should locate it. Barbas will then lead you to the Shrin of Clavicus Vile, after which you will receive the 'A Daedra's Best Friend' quest.

Throughout this quest, the dog is invincible, must survive, and can't be killed. This means that you can use him for other tasks, and he will provide a very effective addition to your combat strategies.

You just have to avoid finishing the quest of Clavicus Vile and Barbas, the invincible dog will stay with you forever. He will follow or stay whenever you wish.

He is an enormous help in your adventures because he can distract any kind of enemies forever and you can just stand there killing without the need of defense.

Also... I believe you can tell him to stop following you and as long as you are in your house (Or in my case, your Dark Brotherhood Master Bedroom) he will stay in there and you can just talk to him to make him follow you again.

To be clear: You need to activate the Shrine of Clavicus Vile, and he will grant you one of three wishes (I chose power). He then sent me on a quest for an axe which I never got, and Barbas the dog has stayed with me (even when I fast travel). Im not positive he's still invincible, but it was a free dog...

No he aint he would not follow me when I fast traveled. I understand why you think that but you cannot fast travel or he will leave you.

If you had declined to kill Barbas, Clavicus Vile would have given you "Masque of Clavicu Vile" which would make prices 20% better and given you +30 Speechcraft, and magicka regenerates 5% faster. It counts as a heavy armor helm and it's stats are a bit above the ebony helm.

Barbas died during my quest. Clavicus seemed to be happy about that and gave me the axe.
