Being a licensed commercial dog walker provides the exciting opportunity to undertake your work in some truly unique and world renowned environments. If you wish to use the Royal Parks for commercial dog walking purposes you must be licensed.

We license operators to ensure that:

  • the parks and wildlife are protected
  • access to and use of public open space is maintained for all visitors
  • commercial dog walkers are complying with current health and safety and best industry practice for the safety and enjoyment of their dogs and staff
  • all commercial dog walkers are fully insured and hold liability for participant's safety
  • commercial activities that are undertaken in the Royal Parks help contribute to the costs of our infrastructure

As a licensed commercial dog walker your business will be listed on our website.

For non-commercial dog walkers, view our guidance and advice for walking dogs in the Royal Parks.
