its quite annoying flying over lava of some mobs to get somewhere only to have your pet follow you and either die in the lava or trail along with a bunch of mobs behind you

just wondering if anything else can be done to prevent this from happeneing, either have the pet become dismissed when you mount up on a flying mount or something?

Q u o t e:
Blizzard plans on changing that:

Q u o t e:
We intend to make a change so that Warlock pets will vanish when you mount and reappear when you dismount from flying mounts, regular mounts and even flight paths to help conserve the need to use soul shards to resummon.

This will most likely be in a future patch that we do however, we do not have a specific date as of yet. At current our testing is looking promising for this feature.

But no mention on Hunters, of course...

This change is meant to apply to hunters and their pets as well.
