George R.R. Martin claims an important fact is explained in The Winds of Winter

While we always found the Targaryens fascinating for their silver hair and their ability to control dragons, fans have often wondered what makes them such close companions. The Targaryens are said to have dragon blood running through their veins which further proves their ability to communicate with dragons. However, the real reason and logic behind the same eludes many fans.

But, not to worry, Martin has revealed something very exciting that will get fans enthused. The upcoming The Winds of Winter book might answer all the burning questions regarding the same. Martin said in his blog,

“My dragons do not talk. They are relatively intelligent, but they are still beasts. They bond with men… some men… and the why and how of that, and how it came to be, will eventually be revealed in more detail in THE WINDS OF WINTER and A DREAM OF SPRING and some in BLOOD & FIRE. (Septon Barth got much of it right). Like wolves and bears and lions, dragons can be trained, but never entirely tamed. They will always be dangerous. Some are wilder and more wilful than others.”

Martin is perhaps mentioning the most recent battle between Vhagar, Meleys, and Sunfyre when he writes about how some dragons are more wilful than others. However, it is quite true that dragons, like most fauna companions, tend to imitate their rider’s personality. This is also an aspect that makes it easier for viewers to differentiate between the dragons based on their riders. Daemon’s Caraxes is wild and impulsive like him. On the other hand, Aemond’s Vhagar is fierce and powerful like its rider.
