 Hello Please can you help?

I have listed my main business on google maps - which is fine. However I want to promote a specific area of my business so I come up on the maps when people search for my business on google maps.  i.e. dog walker  -Area - 
However trying to do this is impossible - and thought I could just change my existing details, but it says I can't as listed to somebody else.  I have tried to gain ownership  - which I should need to do - but still unsuccessful
I have tried starting a new business name i.e. dog walking and then my business name, but it keeps picking up that I have already got a listing

Any help or advice would be most welcome
thank you

Changing of any details is possible for the owner of the listing through his/hers dashboard only.

In case you ar not managing it through your dahsboard you need to appy this procedure:
