Required Items for Creating Wolf Armor in Minecraft

To make wolf armor, you will need the following items:

  • 6 Armadillo Scutes
  • 1 Iron Ingot or Gold Ingot
  • 3 Leather

Armadillo Scutes: To obtain armadillo scutes, you can locate the adorable Armadillo mobs in savanna or badlands biomes. They are small, pinkish creatures that curl up and roll away when you sprint near them. Luckily, you don’t need to kill the armadillos to acquire their scutes. Instead, use a Brush on them while holding it in your hand.

The brush won’t harm the armadillo and will make it drop one scute upon interaction. There is no cooldown, allowing you to repeat this action as many times as needed. However, keep in mind that the brush’s durability depletes rapidly when used this way, so you will need to craft a new one frequently.

Armadillo Scutes and Brush: If you don’t have a brush, it can be crafted using four planks of any type.

Steps to Create Wolf Armor in Minecraft

Now that you’ve gathered the necessary resources, follow these steps to create wolf armor:

  1. Open your crafting table and arrange the items as shown in the image below.
  2. Place the Armadillo Scutes, Iron or Gold Ingot, and Leather into their corresponding slots in the crafting grid.
  3. Once you’ve filled all the required slots, your wolf armor will appear in the result box.

Alternatively, you can also use an Automated Crafting Table to automate the crafting process.

Equipping Wolf Armor on Your Tamed Wolf

After creating the wolf armor, you can equip it on your tamed adult wolf. To do this:

  1. Walk up to your dog and right-click it or press the secondary action button to open its inventory.
  2. Select the wolf armor from your hotbar or inventory and drag it over to your tamed wolf.
  3. Once you’ve placed the armor on your wolf, it will provide 11 armor points or 5.5 shields, identical to diamond horse armor.

Durability and Repairing Wolf Armor

Wolf armor is not the same as horse armor. It provides significant protection for a tamed wolf with 20 hearts, making it crucial that it doesn’t last forever in the keyboards. Wolf armor has a durability of 64.

When your wolf takes damage, the armor will absorb some of it and reduce its durability. Cracks will appear on the texture as a visual indicator that it’s time to repair the armor.

Repairing Wolf Armor

To repair wolf armor, you will need additional armadillo scutes:

  1. Right-click your tamed wolf wearing the wolf armor with an Armadillo Scute in hand.
  2. The armor’s durability will be repaired by 8 points per scute.

Keep in mind that there are no repairing recipes for wolf armor, and neither unbreaking nor mending can be applied to it.

Removing or Dying Wolf Armor

If you’d like to remove the armor from your tamed wolf, use shears on it by right-clicking while wearing them. The armor will be removed and dropped as an item. If unfortunate events occur and your wolf dies while wearing the armor, the item will also drop.

Dying Wolf Armor in Minecraft

Another exciting feature of wolf armor is the ability to dye it different colors in Minecraft 1.21, depending on your keyboards edition:

  • Java Edition: Dye the wolf armor in the crafting grid by placing it on top of a dye.
  • Bedrock Edition: Use a Dyeing Station to dye the wolf armor.

By combining various color dyes with the wolf armor, you can create a total of 5,713,438 unique colors!
