Animal Taming is one of the many skills in Ultima Online. It allows the player to try and make an animal to accept you as its master and become a faithful companion. Besides that effect, it also determines the stable slot limit.

Taming normal animals is not too difficult, but to actually tame a dangerous creature in order to have a truely dangerous living weapon takes high skill levels. The skill Animal Lore is absolutely needed in order to make this skill work, and Veterinary is another must for a serious tamer. Also, Animal Taming makes the skill Herding much more useful and effective.


Training of course involves usage of the skill. After first training up to 30 skill points, practical use is needed. Here is a list of what animals should be tamed for maximal training effect.
