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.
