I wrote an article that taught you how to tame a Wolf that you found in the wild but now comes another important part. Wolfs are able to be breed like many other types of animals in Minecraft, and it can be done very easily.
To tame a wolf you first need to tame it, using bones additionally the wolf needs to be at full health in order to breed. You will need to have two wolves (both of which need to be tamed) I highly recommend building a fence/building for them to live in.
To breed the wolves you will need to feed them meat and they can accept any of the following types of meat below.
- Raw Chicken
- Cooked Chicken
- Raw Porkchop
- Cooked Porkchop
- Raw Beef
- Rotten Flesh (Zombie Drops)
- Raw Mutton
- Cooked Mutton
- Raw Rabbit
- Cooked Rabbit
I personally recommend using non-cooked variations of the meat as wolves do not suffer from the Hunger status effect any many types of meat are easily farmable. Walk up to the two wolves and feed them the meat again this command varies depending on your version of Minecraft but I listed them below.
- For PC/Mac, right click on the parrot.
- For PS3 and PS4, press the L2 button on the PS controller.
- For Xbox 360 and Xbox One, press the LT button on the Xbox controller.
- For Wii U, press the ZL button on the gamepad.
- For Nintendo Switch, press the ZL button on the controller.
Afterward, the wolves will produce a pup. Now, pups can be grown up by feeding them any type of meat that I listed above you will need a total of 10 types of meat as each reduces the time to grow up by 10% Or you can simply wait it out either will work.
There are some important notes about wolves if you’re playing in a multiplayer setting.
If the two wolves that you breed are owned by another player (someone else tamed them) the pup will also be owned by that owner. Now, if the two wolves are both owned by two different people whichever wolf is fed (bred) last the pup will belong to that wolfs owner. So, please just make sure you own both of the wolves to avoid any of the confusion.
