These August 2015 lifestyle trends range from canine yoga classes to gourmet airline menus that give classic accommodations a luxe twist. In recent years, the concept of man's best friend has been replaced with the idea that animals are members of one's family.

Pet owners' growing appreciation for animals makes ventures like dog-friendly fitness classes and social clubs more common than ever before. In addition to pet-accompanied yoga classes, these August 2015 lifestyle trends also include illustrated infographics that depict a variety of dog breeds along with pet-friendly airport lounges that make travel bearable for furry friends.

When examining the month's food and beverage innovations, a focus on niche interests and values is key. From vegan cheese shops to plant-based grocers, businesses are appealing to health-conscious consumers and are building a sense of community by connecting with individuals on a personal level.
