Dog Walking Insurance

Whether you run a full or part time professional dog walking business, we offer comprehensive cover under our pet business insurance policy to cover you whatever your circumstances.  Your responsibility as a dog walker involves the care and safety of the dogs under your supervision.  This could include notifying your clients and pursuing veterinary attention for a dog that becomes injured or sick.  You are also responsible for the behaviour of the dogs under your care.  Under our policy you are insured to walk up to 6 dogs at any one time, including exercise off the lead.  Collection and delivery of dogs by vehicle is included.

We understand that many dog walkers also carry out other pet care activities such as pet sitting, home boarding and offering pet taxi services. These business activities and many more are all included when you take out dog walking insurance.

When you take out a dog walking insurance policy you will be protected should a claim arise following injury to a member of the public, a pet owner or an animal in your care.  You will also be covered for damaged caused to other property.  We will handle solicitors, cover your defence costs, and should you be found negligent, we will handle the settlement of the claim.  Our policies are valid for businesses operating within the United Kingdom.  Should you need cover for activities outside of the UK, please give us a call on 01494 887909 to discuss your requirements.
