- Harry Potter: "Hagrid's always wanted a dragon, he told me so the first time I ever met him."
- Ron Weasley: "But it's against out laws. Dragon breeding was outlawed by the Warlocks' Convention of 1709, everyone knows that. It's hard to stop Muggles from noticing us if we're keeping dragons in the back garden — anyway, you can't tame dragons, it's dangerous."
- — Ban on dragon breeding[src]
During the Convention, the participants outlawed dragon breeding, not only because dragons could not be tamed, but because wizards with pet dragons would be easily detected by Muggles. The decision was accepted as law, which was still in force two-hundred and eighty-three years later; much to the chagrin of Rubeus Hagrid, who would have liked to have a pet dragon.
