    If you are dog boarding in their own home. Am I right in saying you don’t need a licence?

    I would suggest you still take out some specialist pet care insurance, though.

    Thanks David and yes I’ve got my insurance to cover me. Definitely wouldn’t work if I didn’t.

    This is what I do for my few clients. They wanted me to cover hols etc and I wouldn't earn enough from the few dogs I care for to even cover the cost of the license.

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. Also it’s not an easy process getting a licence

    I haven't done it to avoid a license per say, it's just I've known most of my dogs and their owners for many years and they are now classed as friends anyway. I would not look after dogs I do not know
