    Depends on where you live and where you plan to walk. Best thing would be to contact the local authority of where you plan to walk the dogs.

    As above, you do need insurance if nothing else though.

    I have not heard of any requirements for licences for walking but I believe this may be an option for the future. Check with your council anyway to be sure :)

    There isn't a licence for dog walking although I think there should be, but if you plane on doing dog boarding even if it's just through the day you will need to get a animal boarding licence from your local authority. Cost and the conditions they place on you vary widely from one place to another
