Grow-at-home catnip kits and plush toys designed after rescue dogs are just a few of the most inventive March 2016 pet ideas.

When it comes to serving pets, there are a number of new business ventures that are designed to help owners better care for their furry companions. For instance, there are sidewalk kennels that can be used to securely "park" pets for a short amount of time, as well as subscription services that can be sent out to dogs based on their most distinctive personality traits.

Pets are also being of service to humans in unique ways outside of the home. In the hospitality industry, the Fairmont Hotel employs a series of canine ambassadors, while Le Bristol Paris has a similar program in place, but with cats that oversee the hotel lobby.
