Think of the contrast between your pet's fur and the background colour

Depending on your pet's fur colour, its always best to choose a background colour that can either contrast or compliment it. For example, if you have a dark furred pet, it would be suitable to choose one that can contrast against the dark fur to better highlight your pet's fur colour. 

Fit your room's aesthetics

Another aspect to consider is to match your room's existing aesthetic. If your tones in your office are warm and lend to nice subtle brownish red hues, then you wouldn't want to choose a background colour that stands out too much. Perhaps choosing a neutral colour like whites, taupe, or grey would suit it best. If the pet portrait is going into a nursery for a baby girl, and you're wanting to keep it in line with the playful and bright moods, pink could be something to think about as well!

At the end of the day, choosing a background colour is a deeply personal choice and only you can know best!
