Solve Phil's Canine Conundrum is a side quest in Fallout.
- Find Phil outside his home.
- Entice Dogmeat away with some Iguana-on-a-stick, or by wearing a leather jacket.
- Receive Dogmeat as a companion.
To start this quest, the player needs to go to the Casino area of Junktown. To the right of the entrance to the area there are a pair of people trying unsuccessfully to enter their house. The reason: a dog.
Simply wearing a leather jacket (which will remind it of its former master) or giving the pooch some iguana-on-a-stick to solve the quest and let the couple enter their house unmolested. There is a 100 experience reward for doing this, as well as the couple's thanks and a pet dog named Dogmeat as a companion, complete with lots of nifty bite attacks in combat.
- The application of the leather jacket is a reference to Mad Max.
