A Few Things To Remember About Companions
Once your companion is following you they cannot die and they can make excellent additional inventory spaces. Each companion can carry at least 150lbs with some like Preston going up to 165 lbs! Having Dog Meat follow you does not count against you for taking the Lone Wanderer perk (15% less damage taken and an extra 50lbs carry weight (level 1), 20 less damage taken and carry weight increased by 100lbs (level 2), 25% more damage dealt (level 3).
