Pet Business Insurance
The benefits of owning a pet are well-known; increased exercise, reduced stress levels and companionship. The pet industry in the UK is huge and there are many pet businesses that have been set up to meet the many and varied demands of today's pet owner.
Pet business insurance from Petplan Sanctuary is designed to meet the requirements of a wide range of pet businesses including; Dog and Cat Groomers, Pet Sitters and Dog Walkers, Dog Trainers, Boarding Kennels and Catteries and Hydrotherapists. Every pet business has its own set of insurance requirements and Petplan Sanctuary offers a range of specialist insurance products with the hallmark qualities that have come to be expected of Petplan, the UK's favourite pet insurance provider (source: Datamonitor 2010).
What insurance do I need for my pet business?
Unlike pet insurance, it is a legal requirement to have adequate liability insurance in place if you run a pet business. Employers' Liability will protect your liability to any staff or volunteers you employ in case they are injured at work and you are held liable. Public (or Third Party) Liability protects you in case a member of the public is injured or their property is damaged by an animal in your care. You may also wish to take up the option of Custodial Responsibility in case a pet is lost or injured while staying with you and you are held responsible.
If you work from business premises, for example if you run a boarding kennel or cattery, or run a grooming salon, you should consider specialist insurance which will include cover for your equipment and premises. Our range of pet business insurance products can also include cover for stock, pet food and money.
Loss or Theft of Keys
Loss or Theft of Keys cover is becoming increasingly popular with the burgeoning market in the area of dog walking and pet sitting. Should you lose the keys to your client's property this benefit will cover the cost of replacement keys and locks.
Care, Custody and Control of Animals
There is a range of benefits that are generally grouped together under the name 'Care, Custody and Control'. This is an important area of pet business insurance as it includes more traditional 'pet insurance' benefits such as: Veterinary Fees; Death of Animal; Loss by Theft or Straying; Advertising & Reward, Animals in Transit and Custodial Responsibility as explained above.
Veterinary Fees will pay towards the cost of treatment for an illness or injury to an animal that occurs while he or she is in your care or shows clinical signs within 72 hours of leaving your care.
