1. Dán 'n Dog
Created by Jack McKeon | https://www.behance.net/gallery/135238325/Dan-n-Dog-Pet-Friendly-Caf
Jack McKeon's artwork for the Dan D Dog brand here comes in the form of a wordmark. The design doesn't involve any image. Rather, it utilizes the brand's name with some stylizations.
Dan n Dog is a cozy, pet-friendly café. The logo showcases this very well. The letters are all in lowercase, giving the feeling of friendliness and approachability. The "n" may be grammatically incorrect, but it adds to the logo's friendliness.

If you can't decide yet what colors to use, consider using black and white. You can't go wrong with it. It is a classic color combination with timeless beauty that can be used on many occasions, including logo designs.
The color combination in Alexandra Design Studio's artwork makes the wordmark easily noticeable. The contrast draws attention to the center. The twist at the end of the letter O adds an interesting visual cue, too.
Created by Kato Design Studio | https://www.behance.net/gallery/122143595/Meggies-Natural-Food-for-Pets-Brand-Identity
While black and white can do wonders, using colors can be great too. Look at Kato Design Studio's artwork here. The contrast between the red text and the yellow background makes the wordmark more interesting.
The contrast is balanced enough. It draws attention but still makes the text easily readable and looks easy on the eye. The text is in lowercase, stylized in a fun and exciting font. It fits the brand so well.
Created by Monumento Co | https://www.behance.net/gallery/99825735/PET-A-PORTER
When designing a visual representation for your brand, you should aim for simplicity. The simpler the design, the better. A simple logo can be recognized and memorized easily. If your brand's logo is too complex, your audience will find it difficult to recognize, let alone memorize.
That doesn't mean you add style and personal touches, however. Monumento Co's pet business logo design for Pet-a-Porter here showcases how appealing a simple logo design can be.
5. Pet Master
Created by Daniel Lima | https://www.behance.net/gallery/126793969/Pet-Master
Daniel Lima's inspiring artwork for Pet Master is very appealing and playful. The letters are stylized in a way they look like images. Notice the letters P and M. The letter P looks like a cat paw, while the letter M looks like a cat head with a pair of long ears.
The bright colors add more excitement. There's a brief description under the brand's name, explaining what the brand is all about.
Created by Alex Dang | https://www.behance.net/gallery/131637209/OMW
A logo needs not only to be outstanding but also to communicate the brand's personality and what it's about. Alex Dang's artwork is an excellent example of such a logo.
The letterforms are customized to look like graffiti, showing the "out-of-the-box" -ness of the pet store. Furthermore, all of the letters have curves, making the logo captivating and giving off an energetic and fun vibe. It's catchy, draws attention, and communicates the brand well.
Created by ELFINA JOEW | https://www.behance.net/gallery/128141801/Min-Pet-Salon-Spa
A wordmark is typically simple, but it's not the only logo type you can use. There are plenty more. For example, Elfina Joew's artwork is a combination mark. It combines a wordmark and a pictorial mark.
On the left, there's a cute puppy waving its leg. On the right are the brand's name and its brief description. It's a combination mark, but it keeps things simple, concise, and appealing. Notice the font and colors.
Created by Juliana Yuri Yoshida | https://www.behance.net/gallery/121917003/Petplast-Identidade-Visual
A good logo is simple. That doesn't mean you should go with black and white every time. You can keep it simple while at the same time making it playful and colorful. Juliana Yuri Yoshida's pet business logo design here proves that.
The font showcases the playful side of the brand. Meanwhile, the colors make the logo more visually appealing, especially with the three dots above the E, which add a unique visual cue.
Created by Cassiano Gustavo | https://www.behance.net/gallery/77766645/Woody
Colors are there not just for making a logo more visually appealing. They are deliberately chosen to evoke certain emotions. For example, the green in Woody's logo by Cassiano Gustavo evokes cheerfulness.
Green is also associated with health and safety, which fits the Woody pet shop so well. Notice the letter W, which resembles a cat's nose and upper mouth. The design also involves various cat expressions, making it even more noticeable and exciting.
10. All For Pets
Created by Nadya Nikolaeva | https://www.behance.net/gallery/126834231/Pet-Shop-Branding
The next one on the list is Nadya Nikolaeva's pet business logo design for All for Pets. Notice the simplicity of the brand's graphic representation. It shows the hind legs and tail of a pet. Both the text and image are in black and against a white background.
The simple design, combined with the timeless beauty of black and white, creates a brand's graphic representation that draws attention and can't be ignored.
11. Dom Pet Store
Created by Ruma Núcleo Criativo | https://www.behance.net/gallery/104050977/Dom-Pet-Store
Ruma Nucleo Criativo's artwork is nothing short of clever. Instead of using geometrical shapes, which we are familiar with, the design uses an abstract shape. It combines the letter P with an outline of a dog's head.
The result is a minimalist and recognizable brand logo. The color combination makes the design even more interesting. The contrast between the white letter and the yellow background is appealing and pleasant to the eye.
Created by TAT Song | https://www.behance.net/gallery/144083487/PAWS-Effective-Dog-Training-Studio
Tat Song's pet business logo design is as simple as it gets. It is a wordmark and uses black and white. There is nothing intricate in the design. That said, it makes an amazing brand graphic representation thanks to its simplicity.
Since the design is so simple, the audience can recognize and remember it easily. Furthermore, the brief description of the brand helps the audience to associate the logo with what the brand does.
Created by Second Eight | https://www.behance.net/gallery/144816855/Trace-Logo-and-Branding-Design
For a pet business, adding pet-related shapes to a logo is a good idea. It is, however, not a must. Notice how Second Eight's pet business logo design with name doesn't include any such shapes.
Rather, it uses a clean, basic, yet dynamic typography and colors that convey friendliness, trustworthiness, and a touch of modernity. This fits Trace well. It is a pet business that helps owners track their pet's location using smart technology.
14. Little Pet Shop
Created by Luan Lopes | https://www.behance.net/gallery/140269937/Little-Pet-Shop
Designed by Luan Lopes, the Little Pet Shop's logo is simple, concise, and memorable. Except for the first letter, all the letters are written in lowercase with no sharp edges. This evokes a feeling of friendliness and approachability.
The letter E is replaced by a silhouette of a hamster, adding uniqueness and a hard-to-miss visual cue. The contrasting colors draw attention just enough. It is an excellent example of beauty in simplicity.
Created by Nic Moldoveanu | https://www.behance.net/gallery/29093353/Pet-Shop-Logo
A logo can be professional but also fun and vibrant. Nic Moldoveanu's pet business logo design for Petido demonstrates that. The font is less playful and more professional, fitting Petido, which is a pet shop and vet clinique very well.
It does have a fun side, though. Notice the squirrel's tail on the letter D. The letters are mostly in orange, making the design vibrant. Meanwhile, the teal on the letter T adds balance.
16. Peeka Paws
Created by Agu Wu | https://www.behance.net/gallery/121062559/Peeka-Paws-brand-run-by-Dachsund
While colors, especially bright ones, add excitement to a logo, the black-and-white combination can be fun, too. Just look at Agu Wu's artwork for Peeka Paws. The design is simple and minimalist, but it's cute and fun.
There is a dachshund dog coming out of a hole with a smiling face. Underneath the smiling dog, there are the brand's name and its slogan. The logo is simple, but it gets the job done.
Created by Motyw Studio | https://www.behance.net/gallery/136042893/Hugo
Motvw Studio's artwork is another black and white brand's logo that looks amazing. The typography evokes playfulness and excitement. Notice the heart shape within the letter H.
While the full name of the brand can be used, the letter H alone is attractive enough to be used as a letter mark. Furthermore, regardless of the letters are arranged, the design will still be visually appealing. The timeless beauty of the colors makes it even better.
Created by Petrikór ℗ | https://www.behance.net/gallery/131006833/Ruska
There are many interesting things about Petrikor's pet business logo design for Ruska. Firstly, the rounded and thick font. The roundedness evokes feelings of softness and comfort, which is fitting for a pet business like Ruska. Meanwhile, the thickness adds importance and draws attention.
Secondly, the bright red color. It conveys the brand's passion for what it does. Thirdly, the neutral background. It allows for the wordmark to stand out and make a statement.
Created by FΛRSHΛD ΛREFFΛR | https://www.behance.net/gallery/145888899/CABIDO
Blue is an excellent choice if you want to show professionalism and create a sense of security. Notice how impressive the color is utilized in Farshad Areffar's artwork for Cabido. Notice also the white space that forms pet-related shapes that make the design even more interesting.
The light blue serves as the background. It provides a soft contrast to the dark blue letters, thus creating a balanced look that is easy on the eye.
20. Argos Pet Supply
Created by ToHoang | https://www.behance.net/gallery/107019153/Argos-Pet-Supply
Besides professionalism, blue can also be used to convey loyalty. Toby Hoang's logo design for Argos Pet Supply exemplifies this. Loyalty, alongside reliability and compassion, is the value that the brand upholds.
In addition, blue is also associated with the idea of cleanliness, which fits the pet supply store well. The design includes pictures of cute dogs and cats, conveying Argos Pet Supply's fun and whimsical side. Meanwhile, the font communicates friendliness.
Created by Alisa Yarkey | https://www.behance.net/gallery/143068315/Groomaster-pet-salon-banding

23. Growth Pet

You want to include an image to your brand's logo. However, you're still undecided on what kind of image to include. If that's the case, consider using the first letter of your brand's name. Margarett Stasevich's artwork shows how good it can be.
Look at the stylized letter G. The letter mark is clean, sleek, minimalist, and has a modern touch to it. It stands out and makes a hard-to-miss statement about the brand.
Created by Rachel Wong | https://www.behance.net/gallery/93921807/Hoppers-Cricket-Dog-Treats-Packaging
A good logo resonates with its target audience. For example, if your brand's target audience is 20 to 35-year-old dog owners, you want a logo that is playful and attractive. Rachel Wong's pet business logo design is an excellent example of such a logo.
Notice how the letters are arranged and the cute dog with the letter Ps as its ears. It keeps things simple and attractive while showing Hoppers' playful side.
25. The Waggle Tail

Shaunak Datar's artwork is as fun as the brand's name. The logo is in lowercase, which gives off a casual and more laid-back vibe. It also makes the brand appears more approachable and friendly, which fits a pet business like the Waggle Tail.
The "waggle" part is bolded. There are lines on the sides and bottom of the wordmark. These make the logo more interesting and easy to remember for the audience.
Created by Mark Garcia | https://www.behance.net/gallery/128196779/cutiepapi
Mark Garcia's artwork is more than just a cute logo. The color choice, the font, and the image are all amazing. The pastel blue evokes a calming feeling, fitting for a pet store like Cutiepapi.

The artwork for Saracat is simple, straight to the point, and gets the job done. The brand's graphics representation may "only" come in black and white, but it is its simplicity that makes it so appealing.
We all know the timeless beauty of black and white, but the twist of cat eyes in the wordmark makes it quite recognizable and memorable. It reflects the brand's playful side while still keeping a bit of professionalism.
28. Sas Animal Service
Created by Victor Sevryukov | https://www.behance.net/gallery/95231781/Sas-Animal-Service
