SRD talk:Riding Dog

The Riding Dog's skills don't quite make sense as far as I can tell. Having an Intelligence penalty, it should be entitled to only 5 skill points (4 from its first HD and 1 from its second), but its skill checks indicate that it has spent 7 ranks - 2 in Jump (listed total is 8, +2 for Strength 15 and +4 racial bonus), 2 each in Spot and Listen (listed total is 5, +1 for Wisdom 12 and +2 for the Alertness feat), and 1 in Swim (listed total is 3 and the same +2 for STR). With each HD that a riding dog Animal Companion or Paladin Mount advances, it should receive just 1 skill point, correct? 05:03, 7 November 2014 (UTC)

It would appear that you have found a small error in the text. It says the same thing on d20srd, so it is most likely a mistake made by WotC itself. --Foxwarrior (talk) 07:45, 7 November 2014 (UTC)
