Pets start earning talent points at level 20 and then gain a point every 4 levels. So by the time your hunter reaches level 80, the pet will have 16 spendable points, unless the hunter has the Beast Mastery talent, which adds 4 more points.
Pet talents can be reset at a pet trainer for free.
These talents can be used for all pet family types. Different trees may have them at different tier levels.
