How to Capture a Wolf in Minecraft

Capturing a Wolf in Minecraft is actually not difficult. Ingredients are as follows:

  • Bone (multiples will be needed).
  • A wolf you want to capture.

Approach the wolf, hold the bone in your inventory, and use your mouse to right-click on the bone while you’re close to the wolf you are trying to tame. If you’re on PlayStation, use the L2. If you’re on Xbox, use LT.

As the taming process goes on, you will be able to see hearts appear around the wolf, which is a confirmation that you’re doing it right. When the hearts stop appearing, you’ll spot a collar on the wolf, meaning that the taming process has been successfully concluded.

How to Feed Wolves in Minecraft

Wolves are usually fed with raw or cooked meat. They don’t like fish, though. Keep your wolf fed, and you will have a happy and trusty companion that you will be able to take into battles. As soon as you attack a mob, or a mob attacks you, your pet wolf will react and jump to your aid.

Where to Find Wolves in Minecraft

You can find wolves in various types of forests and taigas. They have a white/light-gray coat, and you might easily mistake them for dogs.

How to Breed Wolves in Minecraft

Breeding wolves can be pretty simple. You should build a small kennel where you will put two adult wolves. The next thing you need to do is feed them. If they are wounded, they will first need to be fed until they are at full health.

And now, you just need to leave them to do their thing until a baby wolf is spawned. The baby wolf is automatically tamed.
