RSPCA calls for more regulation in pet industry

Home footage has captured a dog walker hitting a pet in her care, as campaigners call for more regulation and licensing across the industry.

Not all local authorities require dog walkers, trainers and groomers to have qualifications and licences to operate, say the RSPCA, and this can lead to some animals being put at risk.

The BBC’s Claire Jones reports on cases where people have caused dogs harm while hired to look after them.

    Whilst I welcome such moves qualifications do not guarantee a good standard of service.
    People looking to employ walkers, trainers etc. need to do their own due diligence checks.
