Minecraft players can have a wide range of pets with the help of taming. If you want to have a fox as your pet, check out this guide on how to tame a fox in Minecraft.
One of the most loved and light-hearted features of Minecraft is pets. Every animal in the game has unique characteristics. While horses can help you travel efficiently in the Overworld, cats can surprise you with gifts.
Foxes are very popular among Minecraft players because taming them is not an easy task and they’re rare. They tend to run away when you go near them without sneaking, but do not attack.
Here’s how to tame a fox in Minecraft through breeding.
Where to find a fox in Minecraft
Foxes in Minecraft primarily spawn in biomes such as taiga, old growth taiga, grove, and snowy taiga. They spawn in a group of two or four, and this is important because you cannot tame a fox without finding at least two of them.

Taiga biomes are known for their tall and green spruce trees. In the snowy taiga biomes, you can find white foxes as well.
It is better to search for foxes during the day because they are nocturnal. They are active during the night and sleep during the day.
How to tame a fox in Minecraft
You cannot tame a fox directly in Minecraft. Instead, you need to find two adult foxes and make them breed. The baby fox will be your tamed fox.
How to breed foxes in Minecraft
Follow these steps to breed foxes in Minecraft:
- Find two foxes in a taiga biome and bring them close. When you spot a fox, do not rush and use the sneak function to approach it.
- Either use cobblestone to make a passage between the two foxes or craft a lead and use it to control the fox’s movement.
- When the two foxes are close to each other, feed them both a sweet berry.
- After the two adult foxes breed, a baby fox that will be loyal to you will spawn.
Using a lead is definitely more convenient for controlling a fox’s movement and here’s a detailed guide on how to make a lead in Minecraft.
As for sweet berries, they are abundant in the taiga biome and you can easily distinguish them from other berries in the game due to their vibrant red color.
