Pet businesses have proven to be successful time and again. Pets offer companionship & in exchange for that owners are willing to treat them like their child. It’s a beautiful bond, for sure. But at the same time, it’s a great business opportunity. Around 70% of US families keep pets. And, these millions of customers will support you if you have any useful skill or product to help the pet owner.

But, to be honest, services like dog grooming or dog sitting are high competition. Such businesses have been around for a long time. If you want to establish a unique pet business with lots of growth opportunities, think outside the box.

Exotic reptiles or birds grooming/sitting services are not explored as much as for dogs/cats. If you want something safer, start a pet photography agency or plan pet-friendly vacations.

If it sounds too expensive and risky to start, don’t worry. Below is a list of 13 awesome and unique pet business ideas just for you. Please have a look.

13 Unusual Pet Business Ideas

Exotic Pet Grooming Services

1. Exotic Pet Grooming Services

Dog or cat grooming services are very popular. But there’s not enough space for a newcomer unless you have great expertise in the field. If you want to start a pet grooming business, choose exotic pets. That’s where the real potential lies.

It’s not something an average grooming center can provide. Plus, exotic pet owners are usually high-paying clients as well. So, it’s a win-win situation. Moreover, once you can impress the pet owner, you will be their regular groomer.

The problem with the dog grooming business is you always have to keep a competitive pricing for every service (around $50).

Otherwise, the customer might choose another groomer over you. However, you won’t have to face this situation with exotic pets. Since there is less competition, you can charge a premium amount (hundreds of dollars).

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
Less competition & big money.Dealing with some exotic reptiles can be dangerous.You can start within $5000 if you are an expert yourself.

Around 9 million houses keep exotic pets private in the U.S.A. It includes different types of reptiles, Capuchin monkeys, peacocks, macaws, hedgehogs, chinchillas, etc.

Rescued Pet Therapy

2. Rescued Pet Therapy

The animal rehabilitation market is estimated to be $499 million up until 2023. In the next 7 years, the number can grow by 11.42% (according to market analysts).

That means you are in for huge profit if you can partner with professional vets and therapists.

Here’s how the business works. In the U.S.A., around 4 million rescued animals are adopted each year. People usually prefer helping animals that have survived the cruelness of the world. It feels like we are contributing to a greater cause. But the problem is that families can’t adopt a dog right from the streets.

Technically, they can, but such animals are usually traumatized and show avoidance behavior. They have a hard time trusting the owner and looking for opportunities to escape (worse, they might attack the owner’s kids). That’s where you come in.

You establish a small, rescued pet therapy shelter. Don’t worry. You don’t have to look for homeless animals on every street of the neighborhood. The people in the community will do that for free. You just have to market your services. Anyone who sees a helpless dog/cat will contact you and leave the animal to your shelter by themselves.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
Extremely low competition and high chances of success.It might be difficult to handle some aggressive breeds.Requires $15,000 for food supplies, accommodation, medication, and therapy expenses.

From there, you can hire a vet or partner with a professional to learn how to “undo” the trauma. Sometimes, play sessions, constructive daily routines, healthy meals, affection, and some “alone” time work like magic. The next step is to train the animal. For example, you have to potty-train the animal, teach it to when to sit or drop, etc. If you are not comfortable doing this yourself, hire someone with lots of experience.

You won’t have to wait long before someone shows up and wants to adopt the pet. To get faster results, we also recommend having a website dedicated to these rescued animals.

Pet Fashion Designing

3. Pet Fashion Designing

We didn’t expect pet fashion to be a billion-dollar industry. But luckily, it is.

This industry is estimated to be $5 Billion right now.

It makes sense, considering how much Americans love their furry friends. But the thing is, how are you going to find a niche in this billion-dollar industry?

Well, the good thing about design is it depends on taste. Anybody can succeed as long as the design is unique. Don’t focus on designing coats or jackets for dogs (as it is too competitive). Try to find a gap in the market. For example, you can focus on twinning outfits. Design matching outfits for both the owner and the pet. Or, you can launch tie-dyed pet tea shirts for summertime.

Or what about a party collection with lots of bling? Or, what if you customize outfits for exotic pets? You just need to brainstorm and find something appealing and unique.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
It is easy to become a brand in the respected fashion niche.Fashion brands require lots of publicity & targeted marketing efforts.Around $10,000 to $12,000, including inventory, warehouse, machines, marketing fees, etc.

Tasty Treats For Pets

4. Tasty Treats For Pets

Yes, a bakery, but for dogs. How does it sound to you? Dogs can get bored eating high-protein beef stripes every day. Sometimes, they crave sweets just like us. But offering chocolates or sugary treats to your dogs is highly dangerous. It’s difficult to find dog-safe tasty sweets.

That’s why anybody with a knack for baking can use this opportunity. You can bake biscuits without sugar. Instead, use fruits or molasse to add sweetness (which is safe for dogs). You can start at your home. No need to open a full-on bakery right away.

First, make a batch of cookies and advertise them on social media (Pinterest, Instagram & Facebook). Select an affordable price. Next, package the food really well.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
 Bake the treats after receiving orders. No hassle of keeping inventory. Not every dog’s taste is the same. Some of them might reject your treats.Roughly $5000 for a polished website as well as aesthetic pictures (by professionals).

Such businesses take time to flourish. We suggest you only try it if you are good at baking.

Fitness Centre For Obese Pets

5. Fitness Centre For Obese Pets

Obesity is an issue for both U.S. citizens and their pets. What happens is parents can’t say no to their adorable pets and end up giving more treats than necessary. Plus, some pets are just too lazy and rarely move. Hence, obesity is inevitable.

According to the latest reports, more than 50% of both dogs and cats in the U.S.A. are suffering from diseases due to obesity.

You can start a fitness center for such obese pets. We can guarantee there are not many fitness institutions near you, only dedicated to pets. You have to rent a place and furnish it with equipment suitable for training dogs and cats. Hiring an instructor is also necessary since the pet owners won’t know how to use the machines. The payment usually comes from a membership contract.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
You don’t have to learn difficult skills for this business.   Ability to earn more through marketing low-calorie pet foodRequires a lot of capital.Starts from $20,000 and can go up to $40,000 (if you go big).

Pet-Friendly Travel Planner

6. Pet-Friendly Travel Planner

Travel planning is not a conventional business. However, wealthy & busy people hire agencies to plan their vacations. It includes which hotel they will board, reserving restaurants, and planning activities throughout the entire holiday.

But starting a pet-friendly travel planning business can narrow it down even more. The job is exactly the same. You have to look for places that allow pets. Clients want to make sure their pets have a good time as well.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
You can start with low-budget.The ability to pick places according to your client’s taste is a must.If you are not planning to open an office, a website shouldn’t cost more than $3,500.

7. Dog Walking Services

Dog/cat sitting is a crowded industry. Every city or small town has daycares for pets. But if you want to enter this industry, try carving a new niche. Dog walking would be a way better option. Nowadays, almost every American is trying to switch to a remote job.

So, dog-sitting demand is estimated to decrease over the next 5 years.

However, even though pet parents are staying at home, they don’t have enough time to walk & play with their pets for hours.

That’s why we believe dog-walking, a rather unexplored market, should be in your mind. You can team up with interested individuals and start your dog-walking agency right now. It doesn’t cost anything (except for creating a website of course). We are sure you will find your initial clients within the neighborhood itself.

The service goes like this. You pick up the dog and share your location with the parent. That way, the owner is assured you are in a safe place with the dog. You can charge per hour.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
The client will need your service regularlyRisk of allegations from pet parents against the staff.A website listing all your services, pricing, and available dog-sitters shouldn’t cost more than $3,500.

Make sure you establish this business in cities instead of the countryside.

Pooper Scooper Business

8. Pooper Scooper Business

This business can be run alongside the dog-walking service. The job is removing pet waste from the owner’s backyard or house. Some pets are hard to train. They release their waste anywhere in the house. Sometimes, the owners teach them to ‘poop’ outside. But it needs to be cleaned immediately. Otherwise, your entire backyard will be filled with dog poop after a few weeks.

A pooper scooper company comes in very handy. All you need is a small team (group of friends for start-ups) and low-cost equipment for scooping and managing waste. That’s all. The price is calculated per week or per month. It’s because once you have a client, they will need help every day. So, it’s more convenient to pay monthly or weekly.

Our research shows that a small pooper scooper company can get paid $20 weekly. That sounds little, but wait till you get more clients from the same community. To boost your revenue, you can add services like dog walking.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
Once a client, forever a client (if you don’t mess up big time).Need to hire a lot of staff if you want to go big.Shouldn’t be more than $500 if you already own a minivan. Otherwise, it can cost around $1500.

9. Arrange Pet-Friendly Functions

Have you ever received an invitation that says, “keep your pets at home”? We feel for you, and so does every pet parent. Now, consider a different scenario. What if a person wants to arrange a function (wedding, birthday, etc.) and wants it to be pet-friendly? It sounds cool but is pretty difficult to organize. A typical party planning agency might lack expertise in this sector.

You can target this growing market by starting a pet-friendly party planning agency. While advertising, highlight the “pet-friendly” term.

Usually, even planning companies charge 15% of the total budget (for the event). Since you are offering highly specialized event planning, you can ask for higher percentages.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
 Charges per event can be extremely high for special clients.    Nailing your first appointment. Negative word of mouth is as effective as the opposite.  $3,500 for a website (there are always cheaper options) plus $800-$1000 on office space.

An average party planner can’t do the same because they don’t know much about the dietary requirements, behavioral pattern of certain animals. Your team should include experts who know which breeds are aggressive & might be dangerous for kids. Plus, the food menu should be customized considering all the animals who will visit the event.

You see, such events can’t be planned by the host alone. And, if you do well in the first attempt, word of mouth will be the most effective form of marketing in this field. You have a potential customer in all the guests attending the event.

Social Media Management For Pets

10. Social Media Management For Pets

If you love dogs, there’s no way you haven’t seen Jiffpom. He is a dog with 9.4 million followers on Instagram. And Maru (another popular Japanese dog) is a close competitor. And the list goes on.

Your pets seem to have a better chance of getting popular on social media than you (sorry!!).

This new trend has created a buzz around pet parents. They want their lovely pets to have social media accounts as well. Once the social media account gains enough followers, pet parents can earn a lot through advertising. As the managing agency, you get a decent share.

But the problem is that most of them don’t have adequate knowledge of how to handle a social media account professionally. Moreover, some of them just simply don’t have time for that.

That’s where you are needed. You can start your own social media management services specifically for pets. It’s definitely a unique and tailor-made service. Plus, you don’t need much capital to launch your business. If you have to invest, do so to increase your knowledge in marketing. The more skilled you are, the better your chances of catching a high-profile client.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
No need to invest a lot of money. Low-budget business venture for pet business enthusiasts.Convincing your first client that you are a pro can be difficult.$3,500 for your website. There is no need to invest in learning if you know this stuff already.

 For the starting phase, we don’t recommend hiring anyone. Learn the skills yourself and gain experience with real-life clients. Once your demand increases, you can call for more people to join you.

Pet Photography Agency

11. Pet Photography Agency

The pet photography market only showcases a yearly revenue of around $130M in America.

Needless to say, it’s a very high number (considering only one country). However, it can be a little harder to see extreme growth unless you are a skilled photographer. If not, try hiring some promising photographers for your company. Don’t search for the best photographers in town. They will ask for premium charges.

In your starting phase, you will also need a budget for effective marketing. Keep that in mind. You can start taking appointments once you have a team of photographers with equipment.

According to our research, you will be paid no less than $500 per session, even in the countryside. After a few years (when you can show a strong portfolio), the charges can reach thousands of dollars for a single session.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
If you are a photographer yourself, you can start without investing a pennyTop-quality portrait cameras cost a lot.  $10,000 to $15,000 should be enough

You can charge more if the location is too far, the client asks for more than one photographer, or multiple pets are involved. Traveling to farther cities for an appointment will cost too much. Instead, you can open newer branches in different cities to reduce travel costs and the risk of damaging equipment.

Animal Communication Courses

12. Animal Communication Courses

Even though millions of people are interested in adopting pets, but not everyone has previous experience owning one. That’s the reason many potential individuals hesitate to commit. What if I don’t understand my pet’s needs? That’s the common question.

You can offer courses and counseling services to help future pet owners overcome their fears. It’s much cheaper than owning a practical pet store. Plus, this field isn’t too competitive. You will have to launch a new course for different animals.

For example, you have a course for future cat-parents. Throughout the course, you will be taught how to take care of different cat breeds, the ideal eating schedule, which diet is the most nutritious how to handle a tantrum, etc.

If the course-taker has never interacted with a cat before, you might have to give him a practical experience. It is perfectly okay if you don’t have experience with different animals. You can hire experienced individuals who have had a specific type of pet for several years.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
You don’t have to own the pets, yet you still get paid when one is adopted.If you don’t have any experience with pets, it can be hard to identify good instructors for the course.The minimum spending would be $ 5,000 without the flat rent. For a polished offline course, the expected cost is around $15000.

Another way to increase your profit is partnering with an animal shelter. Once a person finishes your course, you can promote the particular pet shelter to your class. In return, you will earn some commission.

13. Reverse Pet Therapy

We have previously talked about providing professional therapy to rescued animals. But if you find it too complicated, you can flip the business strategy. The new idea is to help depressed or socially isolated individuals with shelter animals. Such individuals can be found in old age homes, people who live alone, someone who recently lost a family member, or just simply going through a depressing phase.

The market size for animal-assisted therapy is currently at $97M (only in the U.S.A). And the projected growth rate (per year) is around 7.2%. That’s super impressive.

Also, you don’t have to prove that your services are helpful. The success rate of animal-assisted therapy sessions is over 70%. All you have to do is, partner with rescue shelters. The process becomes easier if you own a shelter. Next, partner with therapy clinics as well. You will be contacted immediately if the therapist believes the patient is eligible for animal-assisted therapy.

You can choose a pet from the shelter (that best suits the patient’s personality) and take it to the clinic. You will be paid each time the pets visit the patient. You might have to share some of the profit with the shelter, but it’s still worth it. The best part is you don’t have to own a shelter or anything personally.

Best Thing About The Business  Some Challenges  Estimated Cost To Start The Business
You can run the business alongside owning a rescue shelter.Making sure the patient won’t hurt the pets.If you are good at networking, you can start with a minivan only (to travel with the pet).

However, if you have the means, first establish a rescued pet shelter (just like the previous strategy) and then move on to this one. That way, you will have more earning opportunities from the same business.
