Tatiana loves helping entrepreneurs with ideas about how to build their brands and boost their businesses.
Maybe you grew up wanting to work with animals, such as in a veterinary environment, but you couldn’t stand the thought of euthanizing animals. Or perhaps you’re just an avid animal lover with a huge heart. If either of these are the case, then owning your own pet store might just be your dream job!
You not only help animals find their forever homes but also put smiles on the faces of children and families everywhere! Anyone who is in the market for a new pet cannot possibly be unhappy when they leave with one, and even if someone comes in after having a bad day, your business could provide the happy faces and waggy tails needed to turn their day around!
Sound appealing? If you have the heart, the will, and the ability and means to run a business, then please go on! All you really need to start thinking about is getting licensed and what to call your store.

Naming Your Pet Shop
Thinking of good pet store names might just be the single most important thing to consider when opening a new pet shop. A good name not only helps to draw customers in but also helps you to stand out above local competition.
Take this scenario: A passerby who has been thinking about getting a new pet notices your new store in their travels but doesn’t have the time to stop in. They later go home to try to look the store up online, but they just can’t remember your store’s name. They end up finding a competitor accidentally instead, who ultimately gets their attention and gains their business.
Tips for Choosing Pet Store Names
If you want to avoid a scenario such as the one above, try utilizing these tips when thinking of pet store names:
- Use pet-related words: This helps consumers know on the front end what type of business you run.
- Make the name appealing to kids: A lot of times when a family stops into a pet store, it’s because the kids begged for it. This can be very beneficial to your business!
- Use rhymes: People have a tendency to remember rhymes. Make it a name that they can’t get out of their heads!
- Tell what type of pet store it is: Make it clear in your name what type of pets you sell, whether it’s puppies and kittens or exotics.
- Use your name: If you are a pet store owner, be proud and make your name a part of it!
Great Tips for Naming Your Cuddly Business
Ask for Business Name Ideas
If you have a total mind block, it’s okay to turn to others for help. Asking family and friends for their opinions can help generate a bunch of ideas for pet store names, as well as make them feel special that you are including them in your business planning.
Also, throwing a party for the sake of discussing business names can make the process that much more fun for everyone involved!

I liked the "hairball" idea. Maybe someone could put their name in front, for example "Lizzy's Hairballs"

Fuzzy Wuzzy has a cute appeal as a pet store name. Unless of course you're selling hairless pets. :)
