How to get your own Pet Buddy

As you join your Minecraft world, you will find yourself accompanied. Let’s look down at your feet, and you can see him looking around at the new world he just joined.

[NEW] : Would you wish to not have your pet near you for a while, you can stow him, (or summon him back) when using ‘P’ on your keyboard.

What my Buddy can do

In the beginning, there is not much. He will follow you around. You give him a chest; however, you will see him want to keep some stuff for you. Take your Pet Buddy (right click him) and see what he has got in store for you :


Your buddy can store up to 12 items for you !

He keeps them in the chest you gave him. He cannot hold a lot hough, but he is a Tiny Buddy.

You could also equip him with a piece of armour or a weapon.

He has a tiny body, so only a helmet would fit. And he will not accept anything other than swords which is a picky buddy you got !


If you give him a sword, he will fight of mobs together with you. Let’s go get him pal.


Must your buddy be weary from combat?

Heal your Pet Buddy !

Your Pet Buddy might be picky when it comes to swords and carrying items. But it is not when it comes to food. He will eat everything you can eat.



My Buddy died in combat !

If your buddy happens to die, please don’t worry because he will be back. It takes a buddy from 5 to 15 minutes tops to respawn at your feet. You should be careful of your pal because he will need you as much as you need him.

Carry him around !

With a saddle in hand, you right click your pet and carry it around on your head wherever you go. To let your buddy get off your head, you right click it again to make it come down.


One last thing…

As you might have noticed, there is the last one slot left under the Helmet and Sword slot.

How to change your buddy’s appearance

Pop in an item in the last slot is in his armor inventory, and find out what he will turn into. Most of the items are pretty logical.

Model Complications

Since Minecraft 1.8, the Alex skin and player model was introduced, having slightly smaller arms then her male counterpart steve.
For some internal code reason, this defaults to either one or the other, as long as the info cannot be retrieved from the internet. Sadly enough, there seems to be no way of getting that information after the game has started.
To fix this when giving your buddy another skin, a small button will appear in the bottom of your gui, enabling you to toggle between alex and steve models accordingly.
