Licence Requirements for all Commercial Dog Walkers

This petition had 209 supporters

I am fed up with my very nervous dog, being accosted by packs of dogs which are supposed to be under control of these commercial dog walkers, who get paid a fair amount to look after and exercise other peoples precious pooches. Instead they run riot and cause chaos, with no consideration being shown to other dog owners and members of the public!! It would appear that anybody can make a business dog walking, without any governing body to keep them in check. Our places to walk are limited and are being saturated by these mindless money makers, and I'm sick of being told it's my one dog that is the problem because she is very nervous and suffers with fear aggression after being attacked as a youngster by a pack of dogs. I believe that these people should be made to undergo training, and pass a series of tests to obtain a license to walk dogs in a professional and controlled manner. We need to act now as it's fast becoming the canine M25, and these walkers are loose cannons!!
