I have insurance to enable her to take the dogs out
I would need to pay per dog per day but dont know what a reasonable amount would be, we did agree an amount but now she is asking for more
Anyone got any advice

You might also want to ensure that the dogs are insured on your employee's premises and that she is personally insured to house sit animals in her own home.
Your clients should also know that you subcontract this work and that their dogs are not actually staying at your premises.

If she is an employee you have to provide an employment contract, pay at least minimum wage, holiday pay, maternity pay, employee insurance, employers national insurance, paye reponsibilities and other horrendous costs.
If she is self employed you are free of all this hassle. If she wants more money agree to pay more or say no and find someone else.
Make sure that you have insurance in place to cover the welfare of the dogs or you will be personally liable if any harm comes to them. You are operating as a business and not as a friend helping out.

I cannot see any problem to find someone else.
In terms of insurance, I found simplybusiness 's quote is competitive
Hope it helps
