A hunter trainer is an NPC that offers hunters the opportunity to train abilities and reset their talent points (including their pets').

Pet trainers could previously teach those pet abilities that the hunter had not yet learned. Since Patch 3.0.2, the way that pets operate has been drastically changed. Pet trainers now exist to allow the hunter to re-spec his or her pet's talents. Unlike player character re-specs, pet re-specs are always free. The hunter must have a pet summoned in order to alter pet talents. See Hunter pets 3.0.2 changes for a list.

Pet trainers also offer to restore bind-on-pickup vanity pets that have been deleted without being learned.

A general rule-of-thumb to find the local Hunter trainer is to search the city's stables. Where animals and a stable master are, a Hunter is usually nearby.
