    Hi what would you want on the directory such as a code of conduct etc. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated yone,
    I just wanted your opinions please. I've spoken to my local council and dog warden about creating a directory that only lists insured and qualified walkers and sitters as a step to really safeguarding people from those that just call themselves professional but aren't really. What are your thoughts, wgst We thought about being able to have a directory where you can upload your proof of insurance etc or just make sure

    I'll show my certificates in person when I meet a new client or on request for an existing client if they wanted to be sure I renewed. I wouldn't upload them on line for just anybody to see tbh.

    Hi. What are you classing as a 'qualified' walker? I know a couple of professional walkers who have insurance etc but don't act in a professional way, i.e. they are transporting six dogs around loose in the back of an estate car. So, personally I wouldn't use such a directory. I agree with the previous poster, I show my certs when I meet a potential new client.
