First, you usually have to hatch with someone for a pet specifically good for your school. For example, usually does pretty well with the spark beast, and does well with the Trojan horse, etc. There are some that usually work for all schools, like the enchanted armament. I don't know much about what pets are good for what schools, but I am sure there are online sites that give that information.
After that, you have to level up your pet. I would recommend focusing on strength and agility just because they have higher chances of giving resist which is good, but everyone is different. Some people prefer to balance the 4 categories out, some people might prefer to focus on intelligence or will.
A lot of it turns out to just be luck. Sometimes your pet gets good stats, sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't, don't get discouraged and try again! Good luck

I would suggest hatching as well but good luck because people now-a-days don't hatch with pets that have "unacceptable'' talents so its kind of difficult starting out with a pet with selfish talents like rugged and spirited so having a good friend to hatch with is always a good start :D

Incorrect, what you're doing is spreading a myth. Training in Strength and Agility does nothing except increases your pet's stats. Talents are predetermined as the pet hatches, and the pet would always get the same talents no matter what you train it in. Also, this post is only helpful when you are talking about first generation pets, which usually only give boosts to its school. Hatched pets may give boosts to other schools as well.

That would make sense , and your right about the talents being predetermined when the pet hatches, but there is one thing I am confused about. In wizard101, when you look at your pet's stats in your book, under strength and agility it says that the strength and agility affect resistance. If the talents are already established, then why does it say strength and agility can affect and change that? That was not meant to be sarcastic or mean or anything, I know you're right, but I am just confused

When your pet gives you a resist talent, it's strength, agility, and power determines how much it will give you. 250 of each will give you 10 resist for spell proof and 5 for spell defy for example.
