Q: Do you need a license to run a doggie daycare?
A: Licensing requirements for dog daycare centers vary, depending on the jurisdiction. No federal licensing requirement exists.

Check with your local government administration office and your state board of agriculture to learn about any licensing or permitting requirements in your area.
