How to leash a dog in Minecraft Mobile

You can use a leash to move dogs or other mobs into certain areas in Minecraft. The animals you can use a leash on include donkeys, foxes, horses, rabbits, sheep, goats, bees, cats, parrots, polar bears, and mules. You cannot use a lead on a villager or Ghast.

To leash a mob, right-click on the animal while the lead is equipped in your hand. One end of the leash will be wounded around the animal’s neck, while the other will be on your hand. You can then guide the mob’s movement in the desired direction.

You can untie it by right-clicking on the animal again or attaching it to a fencepost. To attach it to the fencepost, position your pointer to one of your fenceposts and right-click on it.

The good thing about a leash is that you can still hold it while you fall asleep. It can also stretch to a maximum of 10 blocks without stretching. You can also attach multiple leads to one fence post. 

Where can I get the material to make a leash?

Strings are among the easiest materials to find in Minecraft. They can be harvested in Minecraft mines or by slaying spiders using a sword. For a slimeball, you can gather them by defeating bouncing Swampland biomes. 

Another alternative to getting a lead is through a Wandering Trader and his two llamas. The leads will drop by killing either of them, and you can collect them.
