Default Why are pets targetable?

Apologies if asked before, used search, did not find an answer.

Why are pets targetable? I find myself constantly trying to not select them else my attacks don't begin.

I was thinking about that last night, it would be good if there was an option to turn that off as im often in a situation where i target my pets instead of enemies etc. it is confusing.

So you can target them with friendly buffs.
Like Blast Shield, it used to be targetable so your pets could get the bonuses too.

Thanks for the explanation, but as it is, it needs work. Constantly having to reposition your cursor so that you're targeting an enemy (to attack) or to move (retreating) instead of your hound or raven - in the heat of battle - is a real PITA!

Edit: maybe make them targetable by mousing on their portraits in the lower left, or by keypress?

We're going to experiment with some alternatives to make this better. Thanks for the comments and suggestions.

While we're talking about pets here,any chance on being able to rename pets ?

It's in no way essential,just something I get a kick from doing.I like to call my main pet cuddles.
