Battle Pet Tamers are a great way to level up pets and get battle pet rewards, but they're sometimes hard to track down since they're scattered all over the place. 5.1 also added the

This guide covers the locations of all the battle pet tamers, as well as the tamer quests and rewards. We've also included maps and screenshots to the pet tamers, and if you'd like to see the exact stats and breeds of their pets, you can easily find them on the
trainer pet pages
, now flagged as Untameable!
