Protecting dog walkers and their clients’ pets

Having dog walkers’ insurance doesn’t just protect you; it demonstrates your commitment to safety and preparation for the unexpected. This sends the right message to clients, who will want to be sure that their pet is safe in your hands.

Pet Business Insurance specialises in comprehensive insurance for dog walkers. Our cover protects you against third-party claims for injury or damage caused by a dog under your control. You’re also covered for any accidents or injuries that may befall your clients’ pets.

Our dog walking business insurance can also help with the costs involved in the event a dog is lost or stolen, and provides cover for other important liabilities, such as losing a client’s keys if you collect and return dogs from their homes.
