I think it would be cool if we could equip our pets with actual gear, like if we put a helmet on our pet it will get +20 health or +3 resist or something. Not only would this be cool to make your pet look snazzy, but it would also be useful in combat. Here is a couple gear examples
Helmet +15 max health +2 base armor -3 accuracy
Goggles +2 accuracy +3 dodge -10 max health
stuff like that, note that gear is not always a straight upgrade since it would also give a downside. Maybe you could also stitch pet gear like normal gear.
Any suggestions? feedback? criticism? Feel free to ask.
