How do you name a Minecraft dog?

To give your dog a name in Minecraft you’ll need a name tag, an anvil, and at least level 5. Place the anvil down and then use it. You’ll see a repair and name menu. Place the name tag in the first slot and enter a name in the brown box. Finally, place the name tag on your dog.

How do you get a dog in Minecraft?

To get a dog, you’ll need to get some bones (skeletons are the best source). Then find a wolf and use the bones on it to try and tame it. It’s a good idea to have at least 6-9 bones, as it’s about a 33% chance for each one to work. Note that in Minecraft PE, there’s a tame button instead.
