Did you know?

It may be a legal requirement by some councils that you have Public Liability insurance to operate your dog walking business within a public park.

What types of insurance do dog walking businesses typically consider?

Public Liability Insurance

Public Liability insurance is important for dog walkers. Public Liability insurance is designed to provide protection for you and your dog walking business in the event a client, supplier or a member of the public are injured or sustain property damage as a result of your negligent business activities.

No matter how much care you take accidents can happen, especially when it comes to working with animals in public spaces. All it takes is for one of your dogs to accidentally escape from your control and cause injury to a member of the public for a claim to occur. No bones about it.

Please check your policy for details on which risks are specifically covered including accidental injury or death to a dog in your care.

Personal Accident and Illness Insurance

As a dog walker, your physical health and well-being are valuable business assets, meaning there’s no time for sick days, especially when you’re a one-person show. That’s why having a plan B in place is a wise move in the event you were to suffer an injury or illness, on or off the job.

Personal Accident and Illness insurance can cover loss of income, permanent disablement and even death if you are unable to work as a result of illness or injury.

*As with any insurance, cover will be subject to the terms, conditions and exclusions contained in the policy document. The information contained on this webpage is general only and should not be relied upon as advice.
