How To Tame and Breed Foxes introduced in Minecraft's 1.14 Update

Minecraft Taming Foxes

The 1.14 update for Minecraft has arrived, and with it comes the ability for players to have the opportunity to tame foxes. To do so, though, takes a bit of time and effort to complete. By the end of this task, you'll have a little fox following you around who will remain loyal to you for the rest of their pixel life.

Find Two Foxes and Acquire Sweet Berries

The first thing you need to do is locate two foxes in your Minecraft world. You'll want to look for them in the taiga and the snowy taiga locations. You'll find that during the day they're going to be asleep, while during the evening and late night you'll find they're far more active. The best time to go after them is likely going to be during the day, so you know they're not going to run away from the set location you find them in. 

After you've located the two you're after, locate some sweet berries. You're going to need as many as you can find, so fill up your inventory with a good amount of them. 

Pen The Two Together

You want to feed both foxes the sweet berries to ensure they fall in love with each other, and breed. The best way to do this could be making sure they're close together, feeding them the sweet berries. If they're running away from you, or are not close enough together, bring them as close as possible or create a small pen around them to make sure they can't get too far away.

Continue to feed the two of the foxes your sweet berries until they have hearts over their heads. To make sure they're sticking close to each other, pull away as soon as they follow you. If you stay close, they may focus on your hand as they try to eat the berries and then they won't focus on one another. If you wait long enough, the pair should breed and produce a child. The offspring should trust you, the player, immediately and will remain loyal to you.

Now, you'll need to lead the newly born baby away from their parents. To do so, you'll need to use a lead to pull them apart. It shouldn't take long, given the animal trusts you.

You can repeat this process as many times as you'd like to create an army of foxes, loyal to you.
