Pets have always been an important part of human history. They helped us hunt, protected us, and allowed us to move further and faster. Unsurprisingly, the ability to domesticate animals is also available in Minecraft, which remains the most popular "survivor" to this day. We will tell you now how and who you can make your pet.

How To Tame A Horse?

Let's start with the most useful animal you can get. The hardest thing in domesticating horses is finding them because they spawn only in savannas and plains.
If you have completed the search, then everything is simple. Saddle the horse by clicking the right mouse button. After a while, he will throw you off, but don't worry - like a real horse, a virtual one needs to be tamed. Try again until the hearts fly out of the horse, and it stops throwing you off.

That's all the horse has become tame. If you put a saddle on it, then the animal can be controlled. And by putting the horse in armor, you will add style to it and a little protection.

By the way, there are also donkeys and mules in the game. The former are just a rare version of horses. The second one can be obtained if you cross a horse with a donkey using a golden carrot or an apple. You can't equip armor on both of them, but you can attach a chest to them, which will allow you to transport more things at a time.

How To Tame A Llama?

These mobs are found in the savannah or mountain biome. In addition, 1-2 individuals will spawn together with a traveling merchant. Llamas can be ridden, but they cannot be controlled. If you press the right mouse button while holding the chest in your hand, it will put on the animal and allow it to be stored in objects. The number of available slots varies from 3 to 15 and depends on the individual.

A llama is tamed in the same way as a horse. By itself, it does not follow the player unless a leash is used. However, the tethered lama will be followed by others, forming a caravan. There can be up to 10 individuals in it. At the same time, if you tie a second llama, a second caravan will be created. So you can lead as many animals as you want.

How To Tame An Ocelot?

Starting from version 1.14, these mobs cannot be domesticated. At the same time, it is still possible to gain their trust so that they will not disappear if you go too far away.
Ocelots are found only in the jungle. You can make friends with them if you hold raw salmon or cod in your hand and do not move. The animal itself will slowly approach the player, after which the predator needs to be fed. The chance to gain trust with one fish is one in three.
The main advantage of these animals is that creepers and phantoms are afraid of them, and therefore, they will keep a distance of 6-16 blocks.


How To Tame A Cat?

Since version 1.14, this is not a domesticated ocelot but a separate mob. You can only meet him in a village where there is at least 1 resident and 4 beds. Besides, there will always be one black cat in the witch's hut.

The cat differs from the ocelot only in texture. And it is domesticated in the same way. Therefore, if you want to get a new pet, you should get more raw cod and salmon. After taming, a collar will appear on the animal, the color of which can be changed with a dye.
In addition to the advantages that the ocelot gives, the cat will guard your sleep and, with a 70% chance, will bring a gift to the awakened owner.

How To Tame A Wolf?

These mobs spawn only in forest and taiga biomes in packs of 4 individuals. By themselves, they hunt rabbits, skeletons, sheep, and foxes, and a tame wolf will attack anyone who attacks its owner (except a creeper).

To domesticate it, you should give a wild wolf a piece of skeletal remains. The chance of success with one dice is 33% and 100% on the 12th attempt. An indicator that the wolf has become tame is the appearance of a red collar. Like a cat's collar, it can be repainted.

In addition, domestic wolves have 2.5 times more health and 2 times stronger attacks compared to their wild counterparts. There is no limit on the number of tamed wolves. They will follow the player and teleport to him if he goes too far. If you right-click on the wolf, it will stay in place and will not teleport and follow you. You can also raise it by right-clicking.
