Pets are companion animals that can be tamed, and fight alongside you. This category currently includes Wolves, Cats, and Foxes. Stats on your pet may be checked using an Inspector, which can be crafted as follows:

Pets that are nametagged cannot take lethal damage. This does NOT mean they cannot take damage - they'll just remain at half a heart, but will still visibly get hurt. Pets can also be insured, which happens automatically when you nametag them, or if you manually click on them with Insurance Papers (crafted with 4 paper).

To call your pet from anywhere, you can craft a Whistle. After attuning this item to your pet via Right Click, using it will teleport your pet to you - even if it's in a different world or in an unloaded chunk. To unattune the whistle, place it in a crafting table.

You can only have a certain number of pets following you at once, which increases with the Taming Skill. Being on a claim that you have permission to build on will temporarily increase this cap by 20.
Pets are NOT allowed at Spawn. Pets left at Spawn will be Thanos-snapped out of existence with no refunds.

Each pet has a level, which starts at 1 and can go up to 100. Leveling up increases a pet's attack, speed, defense, and maximum health. This scaling is linear with level, even though experience scales exponentially with level. This means there is significant diminishing returns for training pets to high levels.

Experience Mechanics

Pets gain experience based on damage dealt to mobs at a base rate of 4 EXP per damage dealt; however, attacking the same mob type too much, or fighting in the same place for too long will cause your pet to get bored and reduce experience gain, eventually becoming unable to gain EXP. This is to prevent sitting at a mob grinder while your pet gains experience. To most effectively train your pet, you should move around often and attack a variety of different mobs.

For a table showing experience at each level, see the Pet Experience Table.

Different mob types also award different experience multipliers when attacked.

Mob Classification Experience Multiplier
Wolf 0.0x
Player 0.0x
Nether Mobs 1.5x
Creepers 1.25x
Endermen 1.25x
Passive Mobs 0.5x
Spawner Mobs 0.5x
Out of Bounds (Above the Nether, below bedrock, above build limit, etc) 0.0x

NOTE: These multipliers stack, so for example a Passive Spawner mob will only provide (0.5 x 0.5) = 0.25x EXP.

Boredom EXP Reduction

Attacking the same mob type too much, or attacking in the same area for too long will gradually decrease the amount of experience gained. You will see this as gameplay messages telling you that your pet is getting bored. Eventually, this multiplier reaches zero, which will make your pet unable to gain any more experience in that area and/or from that mob type. This is to prevent sitting at a mob grinder while your pet gains experience. To most effectively train your pet, you should move around often and attack a variety of different mobs.

Experience Boosters

Pets can be granted double EXP by feeding them Homemade Candies, which are craftable. Each Homemade Candy will grant a pet 20 minutes of double EXP:

Pets can also be fed Rare Candies to give them 10,000 EXP or increase their level by 1, whichever one is less EXP.

Your pet will naturally stop attacking mobs if their health gets too low, even if they can't die (remember that nametagging a tamed pet will make it unable to take lethal damage). Having high Affection motivates your pet to fight even if their health is low.

Affection ranges from 0 - 5 hearts, and can be increased by feeding your pet Colored Beans, which are commonly found in Loot Chests.

Icon Bean Affection Gained
Regular Beans +3 points
Decorated Beans +5 points
Rainbow Beans +50 points

Hearts Affection Stops Attacking At Perk(s)
- None <7 Health
1 x ❤ 1 point <6 Health EXP gain increased by 5% (Wolves will play fetch with you)
2 x ❤ 50 points <5 Health EXP gain increased by 10% (Pets will let you ride them)
3 x ❤ 100 points <4 Health EXP gain increased by 22.5%
4 x ❤ 150 points <3 Health EXP gain increased by 35%
5 x ❤ 255 points <2 Health EXP gain increased by 50%

Affection can be raised past 5 hearts by feeding your pet extra beans. Past 5 hearts, each extra heart is 256 points. Hearts beyond 5 are purely cosmetic and do not offer any additional stat bonuses.

There are multiple special interactions with pets, including verbal commands and petting them.

Physical Interactions

Name Action Description
Pet Sneak + Left Click Pets your pet. Doing so after they kill something will congratulate them and increase Affection slightly. This chat message from doing this is not visible to other players.
Fetch Throw Fetch Stick Plays fetch with nearby wolves, who will attempt to retrieve the thrown stick.
Menu Sneak + Right Click Opens the Pet Menu, which has additional options.

The Pet Menu allows you to:

  • Pick up your pet into your inventory
  • Equip armor to your pet
  • Ride your pet (with 2 or more hearts of Affection)
  • Manage your pet's Abilities.

Vocal Commands

Pets within 30 blocks of you will respond to certain verbal commands you say in chat.

Command Description
Sit All matching pets will sit.
Stand All matching pets will stand.
Locate All matching pets will glow.
Here All matching pets will teleport to you.
Speak All matching pets will make sound.
Down or Chill All matching pets will stop attacking their current target.

Matching pets defaults to all pets you own, but can be specified further by following the command with a comma (,) and other specifiers. For instance, “sit, dogs” will only make nearby wolves sit (and not cats or foxes).

Multiple conditions can be added by separating them with spaces. Multiple conditions are evaluated as OR statements. (eg. “sit, Bob wolf trait:cryomancer” will make all nearby pets that are EITHER named “Bob”, are a wolf, OR have the Cryomancer trait sit.)

Target Selector Effect Format
Name Targets by a specific name. [NAME], or if the name has spaces, “[NAME WITH SPACES]” (with quotation marks)
Species Targets by animal’s species. [SPECIES] (wolf / wolves, cat / cats, parrot / parrots, etc)
Age Targets by baby or adult. [baby or adult] (things like puppy, kitten, etc work too)
Trait Targets by a dog/cat’s traits. [trait:TRAIT] (eg. trait:cryomancer targets the cryomancer trait)

Each pet spawns with 2 traits, which range in effect from doing nothing, to increasing speed, to letting the animal shoot arrows! Traits have varying levels of rarity. An animal with two traits from the same category (e.g. two traits that increase speed) will have an even greater speed increase.

Fertility is a mechanism that controls how likely traits are to be passed down from parent to offspring. After breeding, an animal's fertility is halved, and will slowly increase over time while it's not sitting.

At 100% Fertility, a pet has a 40% chance to pass one of its traits down to its offspring. For traits of Legendary rarity, this chance is further reduced by 90%, for a total chance of 4%.

Each pet has 4 Ability slots: 2 for Taught abilities, and 2 for TM abilities. You can remove abilities from your pet the Pet Menu, accessible by sneaking and right clicking on them with an empty hand. Removed abilities are NOT refunded.

Taught Abilities can be given to pets through the Taming Skill, requiring a certain Taming level and some materials. For more information, see the Taming Skill page.

  • To teach a pet that you own an ability:
    • Right click on the pet with a Training Treat
    • Training treats can be obtained uncommonly from the Thank-You Letters received from the Pet Buyer, or found in any loot chest at the same rate as Rainbow Beans
    • This opens the training menu, which lets you select which ability to teach
  • To teach someone else's pet an ability:
    1. The owner of the pet must procure a Training Wavier from the Quest Point Shop and right click on the desired pet with the wavier
    2. The wavier must then be given to the player who will be training the pet
    3. The player can right click on the pet specified on the wavier to open the training menu, consuming the wavier when training is complete

TM Abilities can be given to pets by Right Clicking on them with a TM, which are found very rarely in certain Loot Chests.

Abilities come with the following restrictions:

  • Only 2/4 slots can be filled with taught abilities - the other 2 slots require TMs
  • Pets can have a maximum of 2 of the same Ability, and the two taught Abilities cannot be the same. This means that to have a Tier II Ability (two of the same Ability), you must use at least one TM.

Abilities come in three categories:

  • Active: The ability is only used when the user is locked onto a target.
  • Passive: The ability is always “active.”
  • Hit: The ability activates each time the user hits something.

Some abilities require a certain trait in order to learn. Teaching your pet two of the same ability increases the potency, signified by the parenthesis.

Shiny animals are very rare variants of normal pets. While they don't have a different texture, they do emit sparkly particles. Shiny animals spawn at a rate of 1/4096, and can be bred at the same rate. Holding a Shiny Charm while making two pets breed will triple your base chances of the offspring being shiny.

Breeding shiny pets will slightly increases the chance that their offspring will be shiny. This increase stacks additively to the chance increase from the Shiny Charm, which is craftable:
