I think animals should give you a flank attract the attention of the enemies in 5e. Let’s make that happen!
You and your animal are a team. You hunt as one, and you fight as one. Gain the following benefits:
- Increase one stat of your choice by 1 to a maximum of 20.
- When your animal companion, familiar, or another creature under your control is engaged with an enemy, instead of using an action to attack, that creature can use an action to cause the target to grant advantage on your next attack roll against the target or cause the creature to have disadvantage on any attack or spell that does not target the animal companion, familiar, or other creature you control.
