There are no requirements to buy, own, or use any pet, nor are there any limits as to how many pets a player can own. Only one pet can be summoned at a time though and summoning another pet will replace the one that's already out.
When summoned, pets will attempt to follow the player but some are slower than others and tend to despawn if they are unable to reach the player after an extended period of time. Water is also an issue with pets as they seem unable to find a direct route to the player, even in most shallow water. If the player goes through a load screen (teleport, dungeon port, log on/off) or resyncs, they will need to re-summon their pet.
Several pets offer buffs and for certain pets it takes 30 seconds for the buff to activate, while other pets will have an instant buff when summoned.
As of Update v184.108.40.206 pets are now shared between characters on the same account. Once you have a pet, use it and it will appear under Spells (similar to Mounts) and be removed from your bag. With this change, pets are listed in the Auction House under Consumable, rather than Consumable > Pets (that category is now empty.)
How to Obtain Pets Edit
There are numerous ways to obtain pets:
- Purchasing with gold from Pet Sellers or from other players in the Auction House
- Purchasing them with runes from Nick's Shop
- Looting them off world mobs
- Looting them from bosses (world bosses and certain dungeon bosses)
- Capturing them in the world
- Winning them with gold or hero emblems from Black Market
- Winning them from Wheel of Fortune or Gold Chest Lotto
- Obtaining them through Festivals with festival currency or from special festival items in Nick's Shop
- Rewards from Achievements
- Rewards from Events
Some of these pets are available in the daily Wheel of Lotto (for players level 55+) so check the Auction House first to see if you can buy the pet you want for cheaper.

Pets can be dropped and looted off monsters all around Haradon and in certain dungeons. Some of these are good/uncommon quality pets, some are superior/rare, and some are epic. All, however, are extremely rare to obtain, and have a very small chance of dropping. Epic dungeon pets only drop in Legendary mode.
The following list does not include pets dropped by World Bosses.

Trappable Pets can be caught like Trappable Mounts (using Bond Stones, Capture Traps, Intimate Wands and Bewitched Censors), but are generally harder to catch since they run faster and are harder to select due to their size. However, knowledge of where these pets spawn and where they path are ideal to catching one.
Note: Trappable Pets are on the same spawn cycle as mounts within the same zone. As in, if a mount is up in that zone a pet will not also be up. Catching a mount can spawn a pet and vice versa.
The buffs these pets provide will not stack with the same buff, but using a +14 spell crit stan will stack with a +28 spell crit lamb. Much like how a normal Petit's buff will stack with an Enchanted Petit.
