Hunter macros stolen from Tranq :p

1. Pet attack/callback - if your pet is attacking it will call it back, if it's not attacking, it will send it in to your target.

I personally have it bound right before the no1 key so the little weird ` sign, easy to reach with the same finger as no 1 for a quick reaction and reassigning your pet to whichever target you are targeting atm.

If you keep your pet in passive stance, it will stay on that target even if you switch - very handy for some bosses where you want your pet to be focused on the boss while you take care of other things at times. If your pet is in Assist mode, then obviously it will keep on switching targets with you, but you can click passive at any time and use the macro to reassign with a double tap.

/cast [modifier, @mouseover,exists] Binding Shot
/petattack [modifier, @mouseover,exists]
/petfollow [nomodifier, @pettarget,exists]
/petattack [nomodifier, @pettarget,noexists]

2. Pet summon/dismiss/revive - if your pet is there, left clicking will dismiss it, right clicking will heal it; if it's not, it will summon/revive.

/cast [button:2] Revive Pet; [@pet,dead] Revive Pet; [nopet] Call Pet 1; Dismiss Pet

To create a macro - from WoW Wiki:

First, open up the macro window. You can do this either by opening the main menu and selecting Macros, or by typing /macro (/m) in the chat box. At the top of the window, you'll see two tabs: General Macros and Yourname Specific Macros. General macros are stored on an account-by-account basis and are shared by all your characters. Character specific macros are, well, I think you can figure this one out yourself. :p Immediately under the tabs is a grid of 18 boxes where the macros are displayed. Under those, there is a single box which displays your currently-selected macro with a Change Name/Icon button next to it. Below that is the edit box where you actually type the macro. Finally, at the bottom you have a number of self-explanatory buttons.

To create a macro, click the New button at the bottom of the window. This brings up another small window off to the side where you choose the icon and type a name for the macro. If you choose the question mark icon (
), WoW will automatically pick an icon for your macro based on what spells or items are listed in the macro. Once you have chosen an icon and a name, click the Okay button.

Now you will notice that the macro icon you chose has been added to the 18 boxes mentioned earlier (as much of the name as will fit is also displayed on the icon). The newly created macro will also be selected so now it's time to start writing your macro. Click in the edit box of the macro window to start typing.

When you are done typing your macro, save it, simply drag its icon from the grid and place it on an action button.
