UPDATE: Beets has Mudslide instead of Sandstorm and the XP from this fight has been drastically reduced. Just use a full Beast-attack team and forget about it.

Medium XP
This strategy has been built to be as fast as possible.
The strategy takes a while. Sit back, get yourself a warm drink and relax the scenery.
Not every strategy can be bullet proof. This is one of them. You might have to restart it, since there are some random elements that increase the risk of your pets failing. Don't blame them, please!
Level 1+
You can use this strategy to carry a level 1 level pet to give it experience.
Some instructions are more difficult to follow than others. That's exactly what you might find in this strategy!
A Strategy Curator found this strategy to be especially helpful and higlighted it with this tag to give it more exposure.
This strategy has been flagged as problematic and that makes Shenk sad.
This table shows the level increase for completing the fight with level 25 pets and one carry pet.
Partial level experience is not included in the calculation.

tdScript for Feline only (no leveling pet swaps as they aren't worth it anymore):

use(Stoneskin) [ self(#1).active & self.aura(Stoneskin).duration < 2 ]
use(Devour) [ enemy.hp < 330]
use(Pounce)
change(#2) [ self(#1).dead ]

you can still do this strat. but with 2 Critters and the should have a bit more health, so they can't be level 1. Maybe Lvl 5-10 minimum, or at least with enough attack power to get 1 hit on the last guy to kill him, since I always lose my Feline Familiar before that (and the one I have is Rare Power with 1221 health).

This strat actually does still work if you swap in your 10+ lvl pets when Stringer comes in. I used 10+ lvl pets but i think you can get away with 5+ lvl.
Stoneskin, Pouncex2, Devour kills Beets - Pounce, Stoneskin, Pounce, Devour kills Rawly - Devour cont. swap in lvl pet 1, swap in lvl pet 2, swap in Faline Familiar, Stoneskin, Pounce x2

Yep. Duchess' strategy worked a treat. I always try to use leveling pets whenever possible; even if XP is low. Thanks going out to Duchess & to Xu-Fu. (edited)

I don't bother with the leveling pets, but I seem to fairly reliably still one-pet it with Feline Familiar.

not sure what happened here i think they changed the abilities some so that you cannot put in a level pet.... i have tried a dozen times and the level pet gets rooted... maybe is just a glitch or something... but this used to work flawless... this was my favorite strat... i hope it is just glitched

See the creator comment, Blizzard replaced Sandstorm with Mudslide... the damage reduction of Sandstorm was high enough to make Beets' Stampede a complete waste and the ideal moment to swap level pets. Looking at other 8.1 pet battle changes (corrected icons etc.) this was something on their list since Beta.

Tried this with 2 leveling pets from the Critter Family and it worked. Critters cant be stuned, rooted or be put to sleep :-)

I also tried this Combo

Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling (1/2/2)
Any Critter L1+
Feline Familiar (2/1/1)

Decoy (reduce the damage on the level pet)
Swap to level pet
Swap to Feline
Stoneskin (renew at 1 turn left)
Pounce until target < 600 Health
Devour
Repeat Feline's attacks. If Feline dies the swap to Dragonling, to finish the fight.

Worked like a Charm.

This will not work any more, sadly. They changed Beets third ability to Mudslide.
Figuring out something else, but wanted to get this up. <Edit> Others' posts to this effect didn't show until I put in this comment.

I've added my Anubisath Idol to use Sandstorm. It will go off after the Mudslide on the first round due to the pet speed. This will stop the pet swap restriction from the Mudslide. Swap to level pet, then swap to Feline Familiar. If needed, swap back to Anubisath for another Sandstorm then back to Feline.

While this will work, I don't think its worth the hassle for the XP you'll put on the level pet.

For what it's worth, here's what I experienced trying a all-Beast levelling team:
Stoneskin [Mudslide]
Pounce [Stampede]
Pounce [Stampede]
Devour [Stampede]
[Quick Attack]
Devour [Beets dead]

Pounce [Burrow]
Stoneskin [Burrow]
Pounce [Rip]
Devour [Rawly dead]

Devour [Shell Shield]
<i>Mudslide fades</i>
Stoneskin [Barbed Stinger]

L21 Black Kingsnake Hiss [Barbed Stinger]

L17 Coda [Pinch]
[Barbed Stinger]
Uncanny Luck

L25 Feline Familiar [Pinch]
Stoneskin [Shell Shield]
Pounce [Barbed Stinger]
Devour [Stinger dead]

...yeah, you're right. The pet XP totally sucked, why did they do that!?

Familiar is okay, but perhaps you mean the enemy as commented below?
