From day job to walking dogs

I'm interested in starting a dog-walking service, and am seeking strategies for transitioning into this from a full-time day job.

Going part-time at my current job is sadly not an option. I've considered looking for some kind of part-time evening job and hope it doesn't conflict too much with prime dog-walking hours (middle of the day).
Quitting my current job without getting some clients lined up seems...stupid, but I can't get any clients while I'm also at work all day.
I've applied at all the local dog-walking agencies, to no avail.
I do have considerable savings, so there's that, but don't want to be sans income for any longer than necessary.
Has anyone had any success with similar situations?
