Hi I'm DolphinMasterMB,
I'm really fascinated by dolphins and the interaction with them.
I made this addon. That massively enhances the dolphin behaviors!
The dolphins can now make awesome custom jumps themselves and even on demand!
The player can interact with the dolphins in many different ways!
You can also just watch these fantastic creatures, their ecosystem and behaviors are beautiful!
Here's a nice tutorial on Youtube, that helps you get along with the addon and give you an idea what to expect:
UPDATE: The addon no longer uses commandblocks. Everything works right away!
This addon features a lot of enhancements to the Minecraft Dolphin behavior:
You can pet the dolphins and give them a hug,
Dolphins jump higher,
Dolphins jump more often,

Dolphins can equip and use different items(If an item is missing in their inventory, don't panic, they are using it in their mainhand. Drop a fish in the water, and they will eventually swap the item back into their inventory),

Some more tips:
You can make the dolphin show it's Belly by being close to the dolphin, then quickly look around 70 grades down.
The dolphin can make a Flukewalk like animation by quickly looking around 70 grades up.
You can drop different items to get inspiration. By looking at a dolphin from an average distance, you will share your inspiration value. The dolphin being inspired will make that specific custom jump:
 Raw Salmon=Frontflip
 Tropical Fish=Corkscrew
 Raw Cod=Multibackflip
 Sea Pickle=Dashflip
 Inc Sac=Mixflip
 Nautilus Shell=Doublefrontflip
 Glow Inc Sac=Frontsideflip
 Prismarine Crystal=Backsideflip
You can also make a dolphin jump on demand:
Drop an Target item to enter the target mode, then look at a dolphin beneath the surface from an average distance of 16 blocks, and he will eventually breach and make a jump on demand. You can also make a dolphin perform your favorite jump by using the inspiration system, where you drop specific items.
To exit target mode and reset the inspiration value: Look straight down.
Dolphins can dance with you:
Tempt some dolphins with fish, keep there attention, then turn around 360 grades close to them. And they will dance together with you!
There are some really cool petting animations:
Tempt a dolphin with fish, stay close to it, then drop one of this items for the animation:
Raw Cod=Belly petting
Raw Salmon=Belly massage
Sea Pickle=Back massage
Secret: Show the dolphin some extra love with a specific item
Make sure the dolphin stays close and try to time the animation right.
The petting animations are pretty versatile, those could be used in many different ways.
You can open the dolphins inventory, when being crouched. And when you ride it, you can open it by simply opening your own inventory.
