Wolves are one the most powerful mobs in Minecraft. They are loyal pets that can be trained and tamed once they have been mastered. They will stay close to the player, fight mobs and wait eagerly for their return.
Update 1.4 added wolves as the first tameable predator mob. There are now several mobs that can be tamed. But wolves remain the most powerful mob.
Many players want to find wolves quickly and easily in a new setting. These are the top places to search if you're looking for a pet in Minecraft.
The following biomes will support wolves:
- Old growth taigas
- Snowy taigas
- All variants of these biomes (except flower forests)
They will spawn in groups up to four, and 10% will become puppies. You can find wolves in Minecraft's oak and pruce forests.
Players will need bones to control wolves. Although wolves can be controlled with just one bone, it is unlikely that they will ever become a pet. The chance of taming a wolf with each bone is 33%, but attempting to do it with just one bone will leave players frustrated and without a pet.
In theory, this means that a wolf can eat bones for quite a while and not be tamed. If Minecraft gamers want to tame wolves, they should have plenty of bones. Also, if a player hits a wolf accidentally, it will make them hostile and untameable.
Although wolves have health, players won't be able to see how many hearts they have. Their health status can be viewed by the angle of their tail. You can heal wolves with any other meat than fish.
These same foods, including rotten flesh, can be used to breed wolves that will then produce puppies. A player can breed as many wolves as they wish or tame.
