Cube World Pets Guide – Pet Food List, How-to Tame!

Our Cube World Pets Guide will teach you how-to tame pets and features a full list of the foods you will need to make your favorite pet friendly! You'll want to get yourself a pet if you want to go far in Cube World, they make valuable allies and can even be ridden on.

How-to Tame

It's pretty simple! You just need the specific food for the particular pet you want to tame (listed below). Once you have that, go to your inventory and click on it. Your character should now be holding the item out in front of them. You can now walk up to the animal and they should attempt to eat the food and have a heart over their head once they are tame!

How-to Ride

You'll need to find Reins. These are region-locked items, so you'll have to find them each time you enter a new region. Talk to NPCs all over and they will hopefully tell you where they are eventually (you can also just get lucky and run into them while exploring). Once you learn their location, head over there and collect them. You can now use the T key on a rideable pet to hop on!

Naming Your Pet

You can use the "/namepet NAME" command to name your pet! Press Enter to enter a command or chat with other players.

Where-to Find Pet Food

The food can be found by slaying various creatures or out of chests you can find around the lands! You can also oddly enough find them from deposits. For example, I found a Lollipop from an Emerald Deposit! This is pretty random, so hopefully there ends up a way to more reliably find some of these items. You'll know the food is for a pet because it will be listed under the pets tab in your inventory.

Pet Food Taming List

If you want to avoid spoilers, you can talk to NPCs in game and they will sometimes give you tips on which food is required for what animal. If you just want to know what to use, then take a look at the list below! Let us know in the comments if there's something we're missing.
