"If you tame an elite beast does it have better stats then if you tamed a non elite beast of the same level?"
"And does the level you tame it at effect how big it gets?"
No. In fact, I'm pretty sure they stop increasing in size after level 60.
"I got my cat at level 10 and I see hunters with slightly different cat models and they're my level but their pet is bigger. Anyone know the answers?"
Are the PETS themselves the same level? If so, then they are the same size. Maybe it just looks different from a distance.
If they are the same level but still different sizes, please provide a screen shot :)
Taking on the responsibility of owning and caring for a pet just to take a class and get a grade is a poor reason to seek a pet.
Perhaps you can be a foster home for a dog that is at a shelter and your training will help it find a forever home?
You may decide that you just want to keep it after all, but in this instance, the visit to the shelter should help you find the dog there that needs you and your attention and traning most.
I hope the class is about training you how to train a pet.
BTW, Neither ferrets or rabbits are rodents.
Ferrets belong to the weasel family (Mustelidae) and are related to mink, skunks, weasels, and otters. Rabbits belong to the order Lagomorpha, of which there are two families Leporidae (Rabbits and Hares) and Ochotonidae (Pikas). Pikas somewhat resemble the Guinea Pig, which isn't a pig at all, but a rodent of the Cavy family (Caviidae) native to South America, and includes the wild cavies, and the capybara. Chinchillas, rats, mice and squirrels are also rodents.
Rabbits can be trained, and an adult rabbit is easier to train than a baby. Before you decide what animal you want to *train*, decide what animal suits your lifestyle, suits your budget and that you would be willing to put forth the effort to make a part of your family.
edit: Agrees that a pet rat is a very trainable and can be an affectionate pet. Many breeds of dog and mongrel/mixed breed dogs are highly trainable. I have seen rabbits trained to do tricks and known housetrained rabbits. There are many abandoned rabbits who need a forever home, socialization and training, too.
I don't have as much experience with birds.
I would still like to know more about this class.
EDIT: Male rats and mice can have very strong urine odor and require a thorough *daily* cleaning of surfaces (ladders, wheel, top layer of bedding) to keep them indoors if you do not want your home smelling of them. Female mice require much less attention to odors as their urine does not have anywhere near the odor level. If you use a baby wipe to swipe off metal or plastic surfaces once a day, you can go a week without a thorough cleaning/changing litter/bedding. Baking soda and peroxide mixed works wonders for all pet odors.
