How to Train Your Dragon Guide

How to Train Your Dragon - School of DragonsDragon training may seem like a daunting task for any young Viking. However, it’s important to remember that training a dragon should not be about strict discipline or obedience, but instead focus on the bond between dragon and rider. If this seems challenging, don’t fret, for the School of Dragons is here to help you train dragons like an expert Viking!

First, the way to a dragon’s heart is through its stomach. They love eating fish, so keep this in mind when trying to keep your dragon motivated during training sessions. If your dragon breathes fire for the first time or is able to hover for a few seconds, reward it with some delicious fish. Keep in mind that dragons loathe eels, so be sure not to mistake eels for fish when feeding your dragon!

Once your dragon has begun to trust you, it will allow you to pet it. This gesture is a huge step in the bond between the two of you, as dragons rarely let strangers come too close. This is the dragon’s way of acknowledging you as a friend. Remember, when a dragon allows you to touch it—or even approach it—this is a significant moment in your relationship and should not be taken lightly.
