Licensed Animal Establishments & Professional Dog Walking Licensing - Freedom of Information Request
With new animal activities licensing regulations coming into force in October, the Pet Industry Federation - the trade association for pet businesses in the UK, would like to ascertain data regarding the numbers of licensed animal establishments in the UK that local authorities in England and Wales have in their areas. In addition, given that professional dog walking is a largely unregulated activity, whether as a local authority you currently require professional dog walkers to hold a licence or to be registered in some way.
We have put the 13 questions onto an online 'Survey Monkey' questionnaire and would be grateful if you could provide answers.
The survey was completed via Survey Monkey on the 17 May 2018 by our Licensing Manager.
