Do I need to be insured for my pet business?


Yes. Sometimes pets escape, injure themselves or others; as a business owner if you are held responsible costs could run into thousands. Having insurance provides peace of mind of financial assistance should the worst happen. Pet owners want the best for their pets so safeguarding your business and your clients prized possession is essential.

Our pet professional insurance can cover many pet businesses:

  • Dog walkers
  • Pet sitters
  • Home boarders
  • Pet groomers

So, what can our professional insurance cover? Included in our core cover, most importantly is public liability. This means that if a member of the public claimed compensation for an injury or damage that was caused by your pet business, public liability can protect you.
