How to tame and train your pet by Mathew ring

Step 1:
Pacification (This will need to be repeated)
If the creature is a carnivore it will need to be fed live animals or fresh meat
If the creature is a herbivore it will need to be fed fruit or long dry grass
Certain creatures require rarer or more food (e.g Pegasus would need magical fruit or a full bale of hay)
If the creature is Neutral or Unaligned you will need to roll a DC 10 to succeed
If the creature is Lawful or Chaotic you will need to roll a DC 20 to succeed
On a success, the creature will be pacified and will no longer attack you
If you want to re-pacify the creature, you will need to roll a 1d8 (on a 1-4 fails) (You gain +1 to your roll each time the creature has been pacified before)
Pacification only lasts 1d8 hours

Step 2:
Taming (Hours will need to be spent with soon to be tamed creature)
You will need to perform a taming check (Animal Handling) in order to tame the creature
Neutral or Unaligned gives you +1 to your taming check
Lawful or Chaotic gives you -2 to your taming check
If the creature's Wisdom is above 11 you have -1 to your taming check, unless it is willing to be tamed
If the creature's Intelligence is above 11 you have -1 to your taming check, unless it is willing to be tamed
If a Lawful creature is trying to tame a Chaotic creature -4 to your taming check and vice versa
A taming check can only be performed on a pacified creature
Each time the creature has been pacified, you gain an additional +2 to your taming check
When you choose to perform a taming check to tame the creature you will need to roll an
Animal Handling Check DC 15 + the creature's challenge rating (Creatures under challenge rating 1 have +1 to their DC)

Step 3:
Training
You will need to spend a certain amount of hours with the creature to successfully tame it
You will also need to re-pacify the creature until it has been successfully fully tamed
If you fail to re-pacify the creature before it is fully tamed, you will need to re-do the pacification check and the taming check but afterwards you resume your progress you've made in training so far
1d4+3 days to train a creature to respond to your whistle
1d8+3 days to train a creature to attack your enemies and/or on your signal
1d12+3 days to successfully fully tame a creature
Once a creature has been successfully fully tamed, it acts as part of the party, responding only to the creature who tamed it

Example:
Wyvern (Challenge 6, Unaligned, 12 Wis):
After feeding it some fresh meat and successfully rolling the DC 10 feeding check, and re-pacifying it each time the pacification has ended
Your normal Animal Handling Bonus -2 (Because of its Wisdom) +1 (Because of its Alignment) + 2 per each time the Wyvern has been pacified
You will then need to spend 1d12+3 days to fully tame this Wyvern, during this time you will need to re-pacify it once each pacification has ended
