  • California Pet Sitting Licenses and Permits

    California has some of the most advanced and intricate licensing and permitting in the nation. Strong and detailed environmental regulations mean extra licensing for businesses such as mechanics and healthcare organizations. Cities often take care of some of the most local issues like valet parking, while counties manage health permitting, particularly food businesses. California itself oversees many industries, particularly professions and businesses that affect public safety.

    In California, household Services such as Housekeeping, Gardening, Landscaping and Auto Detailing may not require as many licenses as food and healthcare businesses, but they must be licensed nonetheless. Businesses that use a person’s home as their official address or office may also need a Home Occupation Permit from their city or county.
