Prowl

Prowl is a great PvP pet ability, as it puts your pet into stealth mode allowing it to sneak up on it's target. In addition the first attack it does once out of stealth gains a bonus to damage. This ability is the reason many hunters choose cats as their PvP pet. Combine this with a Night Elf hunter and both hunter and pet can stealth to start a fight.
