Q: How do I get a dog?

Use a training treat on a tamed wolf or in creative mode can use the doggy charm. Use the default minecraft stick to open the dog UI.

Q: My dog doesn't response to any commands and is stuck on 1 health with a red texture, what do I do!?

When a dog hits 0 health it doesn't die instead goes into incapacitated mode where it becomes unresponsive to any interactions. To revive your dog to good health you must feed them a cake.

Q: How does hunger work?

A dog can a maximum of 120 HP (Hunger points) meat will increase their hunger, and happy eater talent will increase amount got from these foods and allow them to eat fish and rotten flesh. As long as they have hunger they will slowly regen health and when a dog is sitting it will slowy regen hunger.

Q: Some of the dog textures are missing (black and purple texture)

This is intentional to allow you to add your own textures, add textures to '\assets\doggytalents\textures\mob\dog' with the name 'doggytex$NUM$.png'

Q: Where did the command emblem go?

As of, it has been replaced by the whistle which is also used for shepherd dog and roaring gale talent. Shift click to change the type of whistle for what ever your needs.

Q: How do I kill a dog? Only applies to version < 2.0

A sad question but frequent one :( You can disable immortally in the config file or you can use the collar shears on a dog twice to turn it back into a wolf.

Q: Are the dog beds and baths just for aesthetic purposes or have functionality?

Mainly aesthetic you can put your dog in the bath and it will continuously shake!

Q: Which MC versions are supported?

Any gameplay changes are always targeted at the latest version of Mincraft. Other versions will likely only receive updates if there are game breaking bugs.
