How To Tame Fox In Minecraft

Overview

Everything you need to know about taming a fox in Minecraft!

The main reason you would want to tame a fox is because of its loyalty. They’re programmed to defend you against mob attacks. Plus, they’re extremely cute to keep around! So, having someone to trust your back with is always a plus in Minecraft. 

Where To Look for Taming Foxes in Minecraft

That being said, you will need to devise a proper strategy in order to yield a decent catch, since foxes are known to be slippery. Luckily, the taming process isn’t anything complex.

Surprisingly, the toughest part of this journey is finding foxes to tame. While they’re usually present in groups, finding them can be a complete chore since they only spawn at very specific locations in Minecraft. 

Having said that, you will be able to find them in the Grove Biomes. Therefore, you should look for foxes in the locations mentioned below:

  • Snowy Taiga
  • Taiga
  • Old Growth Spruce Taiga
  • Old Growth Pine Taiga
  • Grove

Once a fox has been located, it's time to move on to the next step. Since you’re through the most annoying part of the process, it’s only going to get simpler from now on. 

How To Trap a Fox

The foxes in Minecraft are extremely passive mobs. Therefore, they won’t attack you on sight or harm you as long as you let them be. Thankfully, trapping them doesn’t count as inflicting harm, so you won’t have to encounter many difficulties. All you have to do is:

  1. Build a barricade around them in order to trap them. This can be done by constructing a stone/dirt fence with at least 2 blocks’ worth of height around the fox. 
  2. Once a fox has been trapped, simply do the same for one more. Your main goal is to get them in the same barricade, make sure to capture one as close as possible. 

And you are good! Just 2 steps that are fairly easy to complete because foxes walk in groups, which makes catching them even easier.

Now that you’re ready for the taming process to begin, all you have to do is:

  1. Procure Sweet Berries or Glow Berries from your inventory, or the nearby area.
  2. Feed them to both foxes and wait for them to enter love mode. This process can take a while to happen, so you will need to wait patiently. 
  3. Once the love mode has ended, you will see a third fox spawning. Feed this baby fox some berries to get it growing. 

And you’re good! The fox will slowly grow into an adult fox. While the parent foxes will still be afraid of you, the child will become attached to you, thereby getting successfully tamed.
