Pet specializations encompass three distinct and separate roles that hunters can choose for their pets. While all pets are assigned a specific specialization according to their pet family, the hunter can choose to change that specialization if/when needed. Like the hunter, a pet can have more than one specialization thanks to Dual Talent Specialization.

Note that the abilities listed below are the base abilities assigned to that specialization; pet families have additional abilities.

The specialization gives burst, stun, and crowd-control abilities, all useful in PvP.

While any pet family can be re-specced into Cunning, these abilities are naturally part of the following pet family types: Bat, Birds of prey, Chimera, 0500Mists-Logo-Small Crane, 0200Bc icon Dragonhawk, 0400Cataclysm-Logo-Small Monkey, 0200Bc icon Nether Ray, 0200Bc icon Ravager, Serpent, Silithid, Spider, 0200Bc icon Sporebat, 0500Mists-Logo-Small Water strider, Wind Serpent.
