Hard to say with no other info, but it sounds like maybe a faction issue? Maybe you used a disguise mod that left Dogmeat in a bad state... or any of a number of other issues. Use the console and check his affinity to you, among other things.

If you have a mod that makes companions keep their weapons out when you have your weapon out it will result in Dogmeat growling whenever you have a weapon drawn. That's probably why he's always growling. It happens with the weapon drawn option in JIP CCC and some other mods that alter that companion behavior.

If you have the option enabled that has companions draw their weapon when you do it will make Dogmeat growl constantly. As for the hiring problems you've mentioned, it's impossible to tell you what the conflicts might be without a load order and version info.

You still haven't posted a load order or version info. People around here will help, but they can't divine what mods you're using that are breaking your game. You have to post the info required to troubleshoot properly if you want help.
