Minecraft Leash | How to Make a Lead

If you’ve got a farm full of animals in Minecraft, the chances are you’ll want a lead. Having one lets you move creatures around with you, ranging from the average pet to some mob monsters. If you want to make a leash but aren’t entirely sure how the process works, then worry not. This is how to make a leash in Minecraft!

How To Make A Leash in Minecraft

To make a leash, you need to get into Minecraft‘s crafting mechanics. Luckily, the ingredients required are fairly easy to come by, so you can end up making plenty of leashes to use on the wild animals populating your world. You’ll need four string and one slimeball to make two leashes.

You can collect these materials from defeating spiders and slimes, then head to a crafting table that you’ll have already made. Combine the two ingredients, and two leashes will be added to your inventory. Even better, you can stack up to 64 leashes, so you’ll never run out if you find yourself needing one.

If you’d rather go down the exploratory route, there are a few places to find a leash in Minecraft out in the wild. Leashes are found randomly in chests, but only in specific areas. In the Bedrock edition of the game, those chests are in the Woodland Mansion, and another in the Ancient City. In the Java edition, head to the buried treasure in the map, or the Woodland Mansion once more. The chances aren’t certain, but you could end up with a leash. On top of that, if you manage to defeat either of the llamas with the wandering trader, they’ll drop a leash each.

Once you’ve got your leash, simply equip it and use it on any wild neutral animal. That will then make them follow you, so you can guide them to a pen or even your home. Equally, it can help tame some monsters such as the Zombie Horse or Snow Golem. Of course, those are more risky endeavors!
