Minecraft: Fox – How to Tame

These four-legged creatures are as clever as they come. You may stumble into one of these animals while roaming. All it takes is a little determination and some creative strategy to make friends with the Minecraft fox.

If you come too close to a fox, it will flee. If you want to tame one for yourself and turn it into an ally, there are a few things you may do. This awesome pet may assist you in fending off hordes and can chase and hunt small animals. They can also hop over fences and other things due to their superb jumping ability.

Minecraft: Fox

We’ll show you how to tame foxes, detailing where to look for them and what you’ll need in this article. 


Foxes work in packs and have varying appearances based on where you locate them. They can, however, be found in Grove Biomes, Old Growth Pine Taiga, Old Growth Spruce Taiga, Snowy Taiga & Taiga.


After locating these foxes, you may now start to sort of ‘tame’ them.

STEP #1: Locate and Trap.
  • Firstly, what you have to do is to locate these foxes in one of the locations above.

  • Craft a small room using any blocks where you can trap one or 2 foxes at the same time.
    • Take note that foxes can hop across fences so make sure your blocks are high enough that they cannot escape.
      • You can also dig. It really depends on which you think is easier for you so feel free to be creative.

      • If you feel more creative, you can try sneaking and throwing a boat at them which will cause them to be trapped inside.

STEP #2: Feed and Breed
  • The next step after you caught two (2) Foxes is to feed them with sweet berries or glow berries.

  •  The two foxes will do some lovie-dovie once you feed them, and a young fox will appear right after.

    You can either feed the young fox berries to help it grow faster or wait for it to mature into an adult. The baby fox will no longer be afraid of you once it grows up with you.

STEP #3: Craft a Lead
  • Lead is needed for the newly tamed fox, so craft one first.

  • Leads can be created using 4 strings and one slimeball and can be obtained as well from mobs and other areas. Foxes will defend you against other mobs if they attack.
