Allow the dogs to bash in doors and get into the houses. I’d design these things to get into houses for sure. While in a house, their sprint would be shut off, they’d just walk and patrol the house. They could also just jump through a window. It’s not like they aren’t capable.
Subsequently, players should be equipped to handle such scenario - such as possession of an infrared blanket that hides from point blank detection. Imagine the suspense of watching it scan you! If it finds you, you’re dead.
