I guess if you had the people make checks strictly to you, then it would be okay to do the dog walking. If you have them make the to Kelly's Dog walking, then you would need to get a DBA certificate filed at the court house so the bank will accept checks made out to the business name. But on the child care, i think it depends on the state law. If you are doing something small like 3 or 4 kids, then probably wont be a problem . Again just have them make checks out in just your name. But if you get a certain number of kids, some states have requirements that have to be met. I am in texas, and there are different regulations for the number of kids you can watch. Good Luck though.
