Kids Club: What if I had a dragon as a pet? How I trained my dragon DIARY

I always wondered how my life would be if I had a dragon as a pet. The thought is simply magical. I have tried to figure that out for a while when Netflix sent me two dragons, Toothless and his archenemy and invited me to a ‘Me and my Dragon’ challenge.

Inspired by How to train your dragon book and film series and now a new original Netflix series, I have trained my dragons to do daily tasks and live with us humans and here is my diary of the progress we have made. Dragons are amazing when it comes to fighting magical creatures and spit fire but they are a bit clumsy in day-to-day tasks.

Here is a diary of my Toothless dragon’s progress in humans’ life.

Day 1
On the first day Toothless needed to acquire some skills in home baking – pretty basic eh?

Day 2
Before going off to school, Toothless and I shared some breakfast – well the armored dragon also had some cereals with milk – some fuel ahead of a busy dragon training.

Dragons are not very good at sharing, so I taught Toothless that Sharing is Caring.

Day 3

Because Toothless was doing really well with sharing I gave him a little treat and shared my very own personalised lollipop. I hope he appreciated it!!!

Day 4

On the fourth day I took Toothless to play football. He wasn’t good at all, but at the end of the day he figured that he could be a great goalie. With his wings he never conceded any goals.

Day 5

Driving lessons were next on my list of important things to learn if Toothless wants to live with me. He was quite good at that actually. I guess the flying skills helped him with a different vehicle.

Day 6

As the end of the week approached, Toothless wanted to learn how to act like a pirate and I showed him. He thought that was quite cool.

Day 7
On the Sunday we had a great party and we played my favourite music by Kaiser Chiefs which is quite suitable for dragons. Don’t you think?

Last but not least, Toothless showed me some spit firing skills. I told him he should learn how to be more accurate in his shooting. So we practiced together.

In the newest Netflix original animated series DreamWorks Dragons: Race to the Edge recently launched on Netflix, Hiccup and Toothless lead the Dragon Riders as they soar beyond the borders of Berk and discover the mysterious ‘Dragon Eye’ – an ancient artifact filled with secrets that will lead them to new lands filled with undiscovered dragons.
