The best thing you can do for yourself is to combine your job with your hobby and you won’t have to work a day in your life. If you love animals and at the same time you’re looking for a business idea, you’re in the right place.

It’s not a secret that the pet product niche will continue to be a successful business niche throughout the whole of 2020 and even longer. And that is exactly where you can find amazing business ideas.

Check out all these unusual and interesting pet business ideas, and we assure you, you won’t regret getting into this type of business.

1.   A pet food baker

There are tons of opportunities when it comes to pet food makers. From online food sellers to actual pet restaurants – truly whatever works best for you.

If your passions are baking and animals you can easily combine those two and open up a pet bakery. You can make and sell popular organic pet treats. You can even sell them online.

2.   A pet toymaker

Our pets love their toys, but sometimes you just can’t find the right kind of toy for them that doesn’t cost a ton of money. Pet toy making is ideal if you’re creative and handy and know your way around a sewing machine.

Start by designing and creating small toys made of fabric or even creating no sewing toys for cats and dogs. And then start selling them online - it is a good way to start your business.

3.   Cat café owner

Are you a cat person who loves coffee? Many people love cats but don’t have space or time to get themselves a cat of their own and that is exactly where you could come in.

One of the most popular current trends in the world is cat cafés. Places where you come to get a cup of coffee and spend some quality time with a cat. You can play with cats, or just watch them play around all the while enjoying your caffeine intake.

4.   A dog trainer/whisperer

We’ve all heard about cat whisperer but is there such thing as a dog whisperer? Of course, there is. If you love dogs than being a dog trainer/whisperer might just be the perfect job for you. However, becoming a professional dog trainer requires some knowledge of animal behavior.

In order to become a professional dog trainer, you’ll need to attend certain dog training courses. You would need to be educated on different aspects of dog behavior, learn how to make dogs listen to your commands and many more things.

After you got yourself a certificate, you can become a great dog trainer. Especially since this type of job offers many business opportunities. You can be your own boss and be successful at it!

5.   Pet photographer and blogger

Your love for photography can be made into an actual business. People love having photos of their pets, so there will always be people who want photos of their animals taken – you can have pet photo sessions and then sell the prints.

But why stop there when you can go a step further and become a blogger as well. Use your own photography and share it in blog posts you make – you can share interesting tips and information about all kinds of pets.

6.   Pet portrait painter

Another idea that will spark your creative mind. You wouldn’t believe how many pet owners have the portrait of their pet painted and then hung in their home.

If you are a struggling artist, it’s time to end the struggle and become a business owner. Become a custom pet portrait artist and paint portraits of people’s pets. You can offer your services online and people can send you photos of their pets, which you can transform into wonderfully painted pictures.

7.   Pet clothing and collar designer

Similarly, like toy designing, if you are creative and know how to use a sewing machine, you can start your own pet-related business pretty easily. Pet clothing – especially dog and cat clothing – is extra popular. People want to see their pets wearing unique and original pieces.

Use your creativity and design different types of clothing for pets. Also, you can design collars as well. Stylish cat and dog collars, with different colors and details, will sell anywhere.

So, why not become the Dolce and Gabbana of the pet world!


The pet business niche is wide and there are opportunities on every corner. The only thing you’re required to do is find where you fit best.

Combine what you love most – whether you’re creative or if you’re into cooking – and mix it with pets and you can find yourself a nice opportunity to start a very lucrative business.
