Where Do Dogs Spawn In Minecraft

5 Answers 5 Sorted by:

Wolves spawn in taiga and forest biomes only. (However, according to the Minecraft Wiki, a glitch allows wolves to spawn rarely in all biomes.) They follow the same spawning rules as other passive mobs; they spawn on grass with light level 7 or higher.

My best advice is to find a taiga or forest and run around looking for them.

Wolves spawn in Light level 7 or higher (like all passive mobs), on Grass (again, like all passive mobs), typically in Taiga and Forest biomes, and more commonly during dawn and dusk periods of the day.

They can spawn in groups of 1-8.

You can find wolves in areas with snow and lots of trees. Once you find a wolf, you can tame them with bones. Tamed wolves will attack whatever you attack, so be careful not to accidently punch your other pets. You can make tamed wolves sit or stand. ( Warning: If a wolf is sitting down for too long, the wolf will never be able to stand up forever.

Here is how I did it : it is a (little) cheat. It will not spawn dogs where there is not, it will locate existing wolves using level datas:

  • Download this program and run it.
  • Unfold saves, then the folder corresponding to your mod. Select region and hit Ctrl + F.
  • Check the button Value and then put id in name and Wolf in Value. Click on Find then wait.
  • When it has finished searching, NBTExplorer selected the id: Wolf leaf. Just scrolldown: after the leaf Owner:, and some other branches, there is one called Pos. Expand it, and then you have the dogs pos!
  • You can find them in the water in the forest

    Data values[]

    Wolves have entity data associated with them that contain various properties.

  • Entity data
    • Additional fields for mobs that can become angry
    • Additional fields for mobs that can be tamed by players
    • Additional fields for mobs that can breed
    • Tags common to all entities
    • Tags common to all mobs
    • CollarColor: The color of the wolfs collar. Present even for wild wolves (but does not render); default value is 14.
  • Movement[]

    Standing tamed wolves wander randomly when near their owner, but follow if more than 10 blocks away and teleport to a nearby free block (if any) if more than 12 blocks away. Besides making travel easier, teleportation can be used to rescue them from lava, water or pits, as they immediately teleport to a safe area.

  • Wolves can be told to “sit” by pressing use on them and made to stand again with another press of use.
    • A wolf automatically sits when first tamed.
    • While sitting, they do not follow the player. However, if their owner fights a mob near them, they are still likely to join the fight. When the fight is over, they go back to sitting (if in water, they do not sit until they are on dry land, telling the wolf to sit makes it stand). They sit at their new location instead of returning to wherever they were previously.
    • Wolves stand up and follow the player if it is pushed into water or injured while sitting.
  • Wolves can either attack (within 16 blocks) or flee (within 24 blocks) from llamas. The wolves speed is increased by 50% whereas they flee.
  • Wolves find paths to their targets if attacking within 16 blocks, even in difficult terrain. They also navigate along the edges of cliffs and occasionally fall far enough to take damage if they leap.
  • Wolves attack their targets running about at the players walking speed and by leaping at them in exactly the same manner as spiders, but cause no damage while in midair. Tamed wolves attack any animal the player starts to attack. They also can navigate and turn around in 1×1 horizontal tunnels.
  • After emerging from water, a wolf shakes the water off their fur. This is represented by an animation and water particles.
