Am I doing it wrong? I'm in elwynn looking for fights, wild pets not people.
This may belong in the bug section but since this forum is dedicated to it just want some clarification.
It worked fine for me. In fact, I trained pet battles on one toon, went and leveled, logged in a different toon, flew around did pet battles, went and picked up the quest on that toon, and then completed it.
So I suggest either trying it on a different toon, or swapping to a different pet.
