Dog trainers and pet behaviourists understand the importance of a pet’s relationship with its owner, other family members, and the wider community. Their roles are crucial to increasing a pet’s obedience and improving behavioural issues. Working with troublesome dogs who show behavioural traits such as possessiveness and destructiveness or other pets that are aggressive does have it’s risks.
Ensuring you are covered should a troublesome dog cause damage to a third party’s property while under your care or injure a member of the public or their pets during your business activities is very important.
We understand that dog trainers and pet behaviourists will have different requirement when it comes to their insurance. That’s why we are able to tailor our policies to suit you and your business. Need more equipment cover? That’s fine. Do you have members of staff? We can provide Employers’ Liability to protect you from claims from them too.
