How to Tame a Dog in Minecraft?

Step 1: To start with, first you need to find a wolf in the game with high chances of them being present mainly in the Forest Taiga, Giant Tree Tiaga, Snowy Tiaga and other variants of these biomes.

Step 2: The players need to collect bones either by killing the skeletons or by looting the chests present in the game.  It is worth noting that taming a wolf might take several attempts which is why it is advisable for the players to have more than one bone with them.

Step 3: Once the players gets hold of the bone, they need to go closer to the target wolf. Place the bone in the hotbar and make sure that the bone should be selected while approaching the wolf to give it the same.

Step 4: Multiple heart shaped figures appear around the wolf once the taming process starts and they disappear after the wolves are fully tamed and the players can see a red collar around the neck of the wolf. The wolf then changes its look and becomes a pet dog.

Step 5: The players can breed two tamed dogs to increase the pack size. For this all they need to do is feed the dogs meat, raw or cooked. While feeding them the two dogs should be present together in close proximity. Once heart appears above the two dogs it means they have gotten into the love mode after which they produce a puppy.

Not only dogs, even the villagers in Minecraft can be bred together. Checkout this article to know how to breed villagers in Mincecraft?

Step 6: Since the puppy has been produced by already tamed dogs, the puppies will naturally be friendly to the player.

To check the dog’s health the players need to keep checking the tail of the dog. The tail hanging low indicates a lower health whereas the tail being up indicates the dog’s high health level. To boost up the health level, players only need to feed the dogs some meat.
