Boost Your Credibility as a Dog Walker
Insurance Canopy & Dog Walker Insurance
Insurance Canopy provides affordable, top-notch dog walking insurance. We provide both general and professional liability insurance to cover the most common dog walker claims. Insurance Canopy offers coverage at affordable prices so you can protect your dog walking business and work with confidence knowing you have coverage.
Get Additional Coverage
Insurance Canopy offers endorsements, or policy options, that can be added onto your base coverage. If you are a dog walker that also performs house sitting, you can add an additional option to your policy. We want to make sure you feel comfortable that all of your business services are covered, so please be thorough on your application. Other endorsements will be easy to add to your policy during checkout.
Benefit from Cyber Liability
We also offer a Cyber Liability Insurance that can also be added onto your base coverage. Nearly 1 in 4 businesses have experienced a cybersecurity event. If your business collects or stores customer information–including names, addresses, and payment information–that information needs to be secured. Compromised or stolen customer information can put your business at risk of liability and this policy has coverage for those risks.

If you have any questions, you can chat with one of our certified insurance agents, or if you’d prefer you can give us a call.

Questions About Dog Walking Insurance
Dog walking insurance covers claims related to the day-to-day operations of your dog walking business. We know that as a trained professional, you do your best to keep your furry clients safe. However, unplanned incidents are bound to happen. Perhaps you are walking a dog in the park and it gets attacked by another dog. You could be held responsible for any harm done to the dog you were walking. Whatever the case, you’ll be glad that you’re insured. Protect your business and work with confidence by having Dog Walking Insurance from Insurance Canopy.
The Animal Bailee and Veterinary Expense Reimbursement work hand in hand. If the claim involves an accident, injury or sickness to one of the animals in your care, custody, or control, then the first coverage to respond will be the Vet Reimbursement. This means you will be insured up to $1,000 for this incident and there will be a $250 deductible.
If the cost of the claim exceeds the $1,000 per occurrence limit, then the Animal Bailee coverage will kick in. This would insure you up to $5,000 more for the incident, unless you’ve already paid to increase this limit to either the $10,000 or $15,000 per occurrence.
Whatever ends up getting paid out for the incident will be deducted from the aggregate limits on both of these coverages.
Being insured is an essential part of being a dog walker. It’s an important component of your business to protect your financial assets if you were to be sued as a result of your business operations. You could be held liable for common slip-and-fall accidents, client injuries or illnesses, or damages arising from your dog walking services. The legal costs alone from any of the above could put you out of business. With Insurance Canopy, you’ll be protected from common claims and have coverage in the case that something goes wrong.
Dog walking insurance, which includes both general and professional liability insurance, starts at $139 per year.
