In order to tame a creature you must be standing within two tiles of it with no obstructions, then target it with the skill. Once taming has begun you may stray anywhere up to around ten tiles away (not sure on the exact amount) from the target though if it loses sight of you or is injured in any way the attempt will cease. After a few seconds you'll be notified of either your success or failure. While most animals are non-hostile and can be tamed at any time, most taming attempts against a monster will instantly fail. In this case there's no wait time before you can try again so it's best to set a macro and use this over and over as fast as you can until you successfully start the taming process.
Training: Training taming is a very slow process in that it can only be improved through active use. It takes several seconds to attempt to tame a creature, and when you succeed you cannot gain off that creature again. In most cases it is best to take this as a starting skill for your character should you wish to use it. In order to increase the spawn rate of new targets you should release and then kill each as you progress. You may find keeping some of them under you control to help cull the others helps matters.

Albino Pets & Monsters are 10% stronger as normal Pets or Monsters
Feed your pet the right food. Check prefered food with animal lore.
Keep it safe (stable, shrinked in house or bank) for 7 real days.
Feed it again after 7 days and it will bond to you.
Use [bondtime to see day and time when your pet will bond.
Always feed your pets.
If you don't feed your pets they will go wild.
A wild gone pet you can find at Lost City Museum on the roof inside the pet pen.
That's where released and wild pets will go.
If you are lucky and no one killed it you can try retame it from there.
