Our dog walking insurance policy comes with a variety of features, designed with your needs in mind:

Dog walking liability insurance

We can provide dog liability insurance for you up to the sum of £10,000,000 subject to the insurer you choose. If £10,000,000 sounds a bit much, we do offer cover of up to £1, £2 and £5 million which also means a lower premium.

Additional trades under your policy

We offer coverage for additional trades so you can rest easy, no matter what you’re doing. You can add up to four additional trades which must be related to your primary trade (such as grooming, day care, etc.) This actually works out cheaper than purchasing separate policies for each trade.

Flexible excesses

Because we go out to a panel of insurers, we can find you a policy with a suitable excess. A higher excess may work out as a lower premium but we can walk through available options to find the right balance for you.

It’s cheaper than you might think

Our premiums start at around £85 however, this depends on the policy, the insurer, your previous claims history and whether you offer other services beyond walking the dogs (e.g. grooming). We can provide you with a number of options so you can find the right premium for you. Contact us for more information.

Dog Walkers Insurance Claims

When you need to make a claim, we’ll guide you through the process and help get your claim settled as quickly as possible.

Generally, claims are ultimately settled by the insurer who administrates your policy. However, we will always be here to answer any questions you may have and help explain anything you may find to be complicated

All you need to do is email us or call us on 0344 346 0409

All we need are the details of your claim, your policy number and some photographic evidence where appropriate.

This falls under third party injury coverage so yes, you would be covered up to the limit you requested with your policy.

Is the dog covered if it is injured or sick?

Depending on the insurer, we can provide cover if the dog(s) in your care are injured or sick.

If the dog escapes, will I be covered?
