How to get a pet
Find a mob that is tameable is the easiest step. All mobtypes are tamable except Shulkers because they can't move.
When Step 1 & 2 are done you just have to hit (attack) your target with the LeashItem (
Leadby default). After hitting your target it will convert from a normal mob into a pet and you will see a message like this:
You took a pet on a lead, it will be a good pet.
Using the Lead as a weapon is required to perform the actual act of taming. Putting the mob on the lead/rope will do nothing towards taming your new pet.
