    How to create wolf armor in Minecraft

    Wolf Armor is crafted using six shields collected from armadillos and a crafting table. Start by placing a Scute in the top left corner of the crafting table. Fill the middle row with Shields, then place one Shield in the bottom left corner and the last one in the bottom right corner. This will give you a piece of Wolf Armor.

    What does Wolf Armor do in Minecraft?

    Wolf Armor can be placed on any tamed adult dog by interacting with it while holding the armor. It can only be placed by the person who tamed the dog and cannot be placed on babies.

    Wolf Armor will protect the wolf it is on from taking most of the damage until the armor breaks. The armor will change appearance as the wolf takes more damage. The armor has four stages of durability: new, slightly damaged, moderately damaged, and extremely damaged.

    If you don’t repair the armor with Scutes during the final stage, the armor will break completely. The number of Scutes needed to repair it will depend on how damaged it is. Interact with a dog’s armor while holding a shield to repair it.
