Say, for instance, you are a pet walker, and a dog you are exercising breaks its lead and runs out in front of a car. You’d be liable for any damage to the vehicle or property, as well as potentially expensive vet bills for the dog. Do you have the insurance necessary to manage the expense? Obtaining a tailored pet industry insurance scheme is your best bet for protecting your business and the animals in your legal and physical control. In this way, you and the pet owners you work with can be confident you are prepared for the worst case scenario.

Take the lead from the pet industry specialists

Some of the pet businesses that can get cover include:

  • Pet minders and sitters
  • Kennels and Catteries
  • Pet shops
  • Suppliers and retailers
  • Pet groomers (both at home and mobile)
  • Trainers and animal behaviorists
  • Pet walkers
  • Breeders.

We can offer you MONTHLY PAYMENTS (no extra cost) to make your whole insurance program affordable and manageable.

Depending on your circumstances, we can offer animals in transit insurance to protect you when transporting pets, car insurance, cover for your tools of trade, personal accident insurance and much more.

Public liability insurance is particularly important in the unpredictable conditions of working with animals, as it will cover you if you are negligent and an accident occurs.

You look after pets, we look after you
