Google has told me to hide my address for a dog walking business

I asked Google if they could change something regarding my location on their maps.

However now they are insisting that i hide my address completely.

 

My business has only been up and running since February and this will have a massive impact on it.

 

They are saying i must hide it because i do not have a storefront. However no dog walking business does have a storefront.

 

But i need to be on google maps for customers to be able to find me and come to my business as i do accept walk ins.

 

What can be done about this?

You follow the rules and mark it as a service area business, or you'll get the suspension you deserve.

Thats fine but what about the other 50 business dog walkers in my area that still show up on the maps?

I havent got a problem if everyone is treated the same.
