Dog pets are undoubtedly the best addition to Minecraft! Dogs are, to all intents and purposes, tamed wolves, which get a collar and change looks. A dog responds to sit/up/ attack commands and is very effective against mobs. To tame one, you need meat and/or bones. Approach the wolf and feed it by holding the object in your hand and pressing the action button. After several attempts, you can call it yours.
1. First, find a wolf. They spawn in the Forest, Taiga, Mega Taiga, Cold Taiga, and Cold Taiga M biomes. If you are on creative mode, you can also spawn one using a wolf spawn egg.
2. To tame the wolf, get a bone. They can be dropped by skeletons and wither skeletons, obtained from chests in desert temples and jungle temples, or caught by fishing. Then walk up to the wolf and right click on it with the bone. It may take multiple tries and will consume your bone. After you tame it, you can make the dog either sit or follow you by right clicking on it. When it is tame, it will be sitting by default, so you will have to right click it to get it to follow you.
3. In order to breed the dog, you need to tame a second wolf. Make sure both dogs are at full health, then breed them by feeding any kind of raw or cooked meat (including rotten flesh) but not fish. You can feed them by right clicking. The two dogs should go into love mode and breed a baby dog.
4. Expect the baby dog to stay faithful to you. Usually, the baby is already tamed. You can also make the baby sit or follow you. when the puppy is born, it will have low health, so you should feed it to bring it back to maximum health. Don't worry about leaving your wolf behind. If you are too far away from it, it will teleport, unless it is sitting down. Make something like it's private skyscraper so it feels happy and not thinking of vomiting.
Warnings Don't hit an untamed wolf. It will try to kill you, and so will the rest of it's pack.
Puppies cannot swim, and will drown in water if they are not removed.
Don't put dogs in spaces that either = monsters or = ponies!
You can only breed two dogs once, so breed them wisely.
Your wolves might occasionally wander off the edge of a cliff or into lava, and can be sucked under by a downward water current
If you spawn baby wolves by using a spawn egg on an adult wolf, it will not be tamed.
Feed it occasionally: Wolves are like us, they need food too. Some people don't understand, and it eventually died. So give it food! It doesn't matter if it is raw or cooked, it will still heal your dog. You can tell how hungry a wolf is by its tail, if its up high, it means that it doesn't need food. If it is hanging down low, It's best you giving something to munch on, because it's feeling a little hungry!
Give it exercise, and let it do things with you: Please guys, don't be one of those of those annoying people who just leave their wolf in the home all day, just sitting there. Seriously! What monsters are you? When you go out, let it come with you, but DO NOT take it if you are going mining down at around bedrock level, wolves are clumsy, and can fall in lava. It's not pretty - trust me. If you are going to collect wood, or exploring let it come with you! If you get to far ahead don't worry, they have the ability to teleport, they wont teleport if they are sitting. Keep that in mind. At times, I like to go down to the river and swim around with my dog, it gives a warm, fuzzy feeling inside.
Give it shelter: Dont be one of those people who live in a little crappy shack, or in a little excavated area underground. Please guys, NO. Give it the home it wants, the home is NEEDS. I like to build a nice modern house, or villa of types. I like to make a room for my wolf. With its own bed, play area, food, water, etc. Don't use a dog just for backup, use it for love, and to have a friend with you.
Have a few wolves: The best thing a wolf can have is friends that actually can play and communicate with them. Also you can breed dogs with raw beef, it is so cute having a little baby around the house, as well as watching it grow up :)
Name them, and colour code them: If you have a few, colour them different colours, like maybe give a boy something more bluish, or green, or red, and a girl maybe purple or pink, just so you can tell them apart, and just makes life easier. Also if you find a name tag in a dungeon or something, name them! Come up with something cute like "cuddles" and "fluffy" or anything in the world you can think of!
When your dog dies: NEVER, EVER let your dogs death go in vein. Show that you loved for it and cared for it. When my first dog died, I built a whole STATUE of him, I was so upset. I didn't care that he was virtual, I loved him with all my heart (damn I'm crying now :( ) If a statue is too much of a challenge, perhaps keep it simple, and build a nice, pretty, grave with flowers all around it ;) its tough when your wolf dies. But eventually we overcome these incidents.
WHERE TO FIND: wolves spawn in biomes (biomes are the type of environment) that generally have a lot of trees. It does not matter if there is snow or not. These biomes are called "forest" (no snow) and "taiga" (snow). They usually spawn around other animals. For some reason wolves appear a lot more often around glass and torches - like a house with windows.
HOW TO GET: when you find a wolf you simply need to have bones selected and right click on the wolf. However many bones it will take before it becomes a tamed wolf is random.
HOW TO CARE: always check it's tail, the lower the tail the less life the wolf has. If about to die the wolf will whimper. Feed the wolf pork chops to heal it. When full on health the wolf's tail should be just a little higher than its back.
SIT: - wolf sits and wont move unless you are attacked nearby.
FOLLOW: - wolf will follow closely behind you. It can only jump 1 block high and wont dive below 1 block underwater. Will teleport to you if stuck. May teleport into ice or lava. Wolf will not attack anything without either you attacking the creature or the creature attacking you. They cannot go through doors, but they can go through 1x1 holes.
FIGHTING: wolves will attack whatever attacks you or whatever you attack unless you hit the target with a bow. Once they target something they will not quit until it is dead. They will NEVER attack creepers.
GLITCHES: when you save your dog there are often problems when you return. This could be that it just will not stand up, or if you accidentally hit it, it will start to attack you without leaving sitting position.
Many beginning Minecraft players enjoy getting a dog: they are a man's best friend. In Minecraft, growing a pack of dogs (or a dog army) can have several advantages. Tamed wolves, known as dogs will attack any mob, except creepers, that either attack their owner (player) or is attacked by their owner.
This provides a player with a walking army that not only protects from hostile mobs, but will also attack other types of mobs (such as passive mobs) providing a player with a significant amount of loot.
To build your dog army, you will need to find a wolf. All versions of Minecraft (PC, PE, and Console) have wolves. They are found exclusively in the Forest and Taiga (any type of Taiga) biome. Unless you want to switch to Creative mode, you will need to find two wolves to tame.
To tame a wolf, you will need to feed it a bone. Finding bones is relatively easy by defeating skeletons but can also be found in chests. Once two wolves are tamed - they will change in appearance, they can be bred to create your army. It is much easier to breed wolves then to continue to find the limited number that naturally spawn in the game.
To breed, simply feed the wolves with any type of meat (not fish) including raw or cooked forms of beef, chicken, mutton, rabbit, porkchops, and even rotten flesh. Food poisoning does not apply to dogs, so raw chicken and rotten flesh are perfectly fine to use. Puppies will be hungry, so have plenty of food on hand before breeding. Console edition will limit your dog army to 16 dogs, but that should be plenty.
Dogs will naturally follow their owners, so don't worry about losing your dogs. When your dogs become hurt or hungry, you can heal them with meat. Fortunately, they are good at killing their own meat.
Ocelot To tame an ocelot, found exclusively in the Jungle biome, you will need to feed it multiple servings or raw fish, any type of fish will work. When tamed, the cat will change from a Jaguar type appearance to one of 3 common cat colors, a ginger tabby, tuxedo from Notch's own cat, or Siamese. Unlike their dog counterparts, cats do not heal from food, only from potions. Obviously, a dog army is easier to create and more useful. Fortunately, you can have both (unless playing in PE mode). So become Leader of the Pack and the crazy cat person and build yourself that army.
