What’s Unique To Pet Care Providers?
Aside from the typical business insurance needs you’ve read about above, there are a few that are of particular importance for a small business working with animals. These are add-ons that you can customize to your policy, making it fit your specific needs. You won’t have to pay for any coverage you don’t need! Here are some items to add to your base policy:
Many of our customers are programmed to ask for insurance and bonding when working with a small business! We have a great solution for you – Employee Dishonesty insurance coverage. Add this option to your policy to provide you coverage when working with employees.
Dishonesty coverage will provide $10,000 per incident and $25,000 per policy term. This is unique from bonding, in that PCI won’t require a credit check or require reimbursement from those claims. This solution is a must add to your policy when working with employees and pets!

Our policy understands the nature of your business, bringing pets into your home, to keep them in a “home-life” space while their owners are away. Being able to keep them in an environment that provides more than metal walls or wired cages, you put your small business at risk—especially with new clients!
Our policy will cover up to five pets staying overnight, per night. So keep track of your booking schedule and welcome in those furry friends with confidence while you keep your small business rolling. If you are not hosting overnight, and instead providing daycare services, your policy will provide coverage for up to 10 pets.
Remember to add this option on Step Two of your checkout process! Your price will vary depending on how many locations you use to provide services to your clients.
With AoPP you have the option to welcome in pets from more than one home at a time, which means you are now at higher risk of pets not getting along! Animal Bailee is protection for you, the person entrusted with care, custody, or control of someone else’s property. This coverage is built into your policy, starting at $5,000 per occurrence and $10,000 per policy term. This might feel sufficient for your pet care business, but there are additional options.
Choose to extend those limits with a small monthly payment, selecting the best fit for your business. You know your business and how many pets you welcome into your home, and what level of protection your business needs. You can select the coverage that feels right for your business because we make our insurance easy to customize! But if you get stuck, just call or chat with one of our licensed agents!
While you are hosting pets, you may wish to provide basic training for these guests. Your policy understands the essentials but does have exclusions to who is trained and what commands are taught. Please read through your policy carefully.
Sit, stay, and come commands are covered under your general policy, without adding any additional coverage. If you are providing training to animals, above and beyond those basic commands, you will want to select an additional option. Elect to add this coverage for $8.25 per month to allow you additional training coverages.
However, under your policy, there is no option to add coverage for the following types of dogs. Please note this before you start your pet care application. We do not cover:
- Service Dogs
- Guard Dogs
- Protection Dogs
- Attack Dogs
- Fighting Dogs
- Police Dogs
