Wolf in Minecraft is a cute creature that has a lot of potential to become your best friend and fight alongside you on dangerous journeys.
Despite the fact wolf was added super early into the game, there are so many features about Wolves that we have not covered yet.
And that’s why in this article, we will show you a detailed guide on how to tame a wolf in Minecraft!
What You Need to Tame a Wolf in Minecraft
- 1x Bone
How to Tame a Wolf in Minecraft
Step 1: Collect 1x Bone
Bone is the main item drop from Skeleton mob and its variant. You must wait for the night to come and skeletons will spawn all around the world, both underground and on the ground.
For now, only 4 mobs in Minecraft can drop Bone on death. Skeletons, wither skeletons, skeleton horses, and strays drop 0-2 bones. This number can be increased to 5 if you have a Looting III enchantment weapon.
You can also find Bones in looted chests in some Minecraft structures like Dungeons, Desert Temples, Jungle Temples, Woodland Mansions, and even Ancient Cities. They have a medium chance to contain 1-15x Bones.
If you’re playing Minecraft Bedrock Edition, killing cod, salmon, pufferfish, and tropical fish can also give you 1-2x Bones with a 25% chance.
This percentage can be affected with Looting enchantment as well, bringing 2-8x Bones for each fish killed. Alternatively, you can find Bone by fishing. Each cast has a 1.1% chance to give you 1x Bone.
Step 2: Find Wolves in Minecraft
Wolves in Minecraft spawn in a pack of four, which means if you ever find a lone wolf spawn in nature, there is a high chance you can find the other three near it.
There is a 10% chance for a wolf to be spawned as a puppy instead.
You can find wolves spawn naturally in forest, grove, taiga, and their variant biomes. The exclusive list of the biome that wolves in Minecraft can spawn in is Forest, Snowy Taiga, Grove, Taiga, Old Growth Taiga, and Old Growth Pine Taiga.
Step 3: Tame a Wolf
Now, this is exactly how to tame a Wolf in Minecraft. When you find a wolf, do not left-click as that will attack the wolf.
Since wolves are neutral mobs in Minecraft, attacking them will make them go into angered mode and they will start attacking you, even in a group. Instead, remember to only use right-click function when interacting with wolves.
Then, choose the Bone item in your inventory and place it in any of your hot bars. Next, press the corresponding hotkey to choose the bone in your hot bar. Finally, right-click on the wolf to tame it.
Each bone will have a 33.33% chance of successfully taming a wolf. When it’s tamed, you are no longer feeding bone to it and the tamed wolf will have a red collar around its neck.
You can also right-click on a tamed wolf to make it sit. This is to prevent the wolf from wandering around or following you.
When tamed, wolves can be fed any meat to recover their health. Remember to check its tail position, if it’s high, the wolf’s health is high, and vice versa. So remember to bring your spared meat in case you’re combating your wolves.
