It is really not that hard. I have a dog also. They are not allowed in the area while baking your cakes. You need your sanitzer strips. Make sure everything is clean.

They want to see sanitizer strips, sanitizer, thermometers in the fridge and freezer, and an insta-read thermometer, soap dispensers at the sinks and paper towels.

Don't worry about the pet.

So it's OK to have a pet in a home based business? I didn't know that.

some inspectors don't care about the pets. If you've got doors on your kitchen you'll probably be OK. Sanitizer test strips.

No it's not ok in every state to have a pet in a home based business. It's not permitted in Ohio if you want to get licensed. You can operate under cottage laws with one, but if you want the health inspector to come out and license you, you aren't allowed to have any pets.
