How to look after an Ice Dragon by Maggie SWW

Have you ever wanted to own your own Ice Dragon? The best place to adopt one of these creatures is at as a hatchling. At the age of 6 months, you can start their training, but no earlier, as they will not be clever or big enough.
Make sure that before you actually get one, you think it through very carefully; some Ice Dragons are a big handful. Luckily, Ice Dragons only grow to the size of an adult Labrador, so you don’t need much except a large chest freezer for them to sleep in.

Follow these instructions to have a well behaved, fully trained Ice Dragon!

What you will need:
A nice big outdoor space, some sort of recall device(eg. whistle or bell), a bucket full of ice cubes, and a very long lead.

What to do:
*First, before your dragon is 6 months old, you need to create a strong bond with your dragon; give it lots of attention, and treat it carefully and kindly. It needs to be able trust you, and you need to be able to trust it.

*When you have gained the trust of your dragon, and he/she is ready to be trained, you need to gather the equipment above, and read on.

*Tie the long lead to a fencepost, tree or bollard etc. and walk about the length of the lead away from your Ice Dragon. Then, crouch down, hold out a few ice cubes and call their name or use the recall device. Repeat this over and over again, moving around the outdoor space, until you are confident enough to take them off the lead, making them stay at the place where the lead was tied and calling them.

*Put your dragon to bed in your freezer or what ever cold place you have chosen at the same time as you, and wake them up at the same time as well. Ice Dragons, in their normal environment, like to sleep on soft snow, so lay down an old blanket in their bed as a substitute.

*If you are worrying about what food to feed your dragon, then panic not. These little fellas have a very simple diet of ice cubes and snow grass. As Ice Dragons are herbivores, don’t try and feed them arctic eagles or baby yetis.

Warning: if your dragon becomes stressed, uncomfortable or unnaturally tired, call your local dragon vet immediately.
