Business license for home dog bakery?

by Donna
(North Carolina)

I am very interested in baking dog treats from my home. I love to bake for humans and know I will love to do this for dogs as well. My question is will I need a business license, and do I have to have my kitchen certified as I would to bake for human consumption? I am in NC. Thanks
