Pet Sitting Insurance Benefits

If you are a pet sitter, pet sitting insurance is a necessary investment to protect you against liability for property damage in your home or the home of a client, against injury to yourself or someone else, or injury or loss of a pet. Even if the liability claim is frivolous, liability insurance can help defray defense costs.

Pet Sitting Insurance Benefits

Pet Sitting Insurance can be purchased by both individual pet sitters and walkers, and larger pet minding caretaker businesses. There is a range of commonplace liability that is protected by pet sitting insurance benefits. If you are a dog walker and your dog breaks from the leash and causes a car to break unexpectedly, damage to that car is covered by pet sitting liability insurance. If you, the pet in your care, or a third party are injured by your pet or injured via an unexpected incident while you are caring for a pet, that injury will be covered by your pet sitting insurance.

While it's assumed that damage caused by a pet is covered by pet sitting liability insurance, any damage caused by a pet sitter can also be covered by pet sitting insurance benefits. If a client has forgotten to leave a key or otherwise give the pet sitter access to the home, and the pet sitter has to force a lock or break a window, that property damage can be covered by pet sitting liability insurance.

There are also petting sitting insurance providers who offer conventional health insurance to independent contractor or self-employed pet sitters. Many pet sitting insurance providers also offer disability insurance covering the specific disability risks associated with pet sitting and caretaking industry professionals.
