Dog walking and pet sitting insurance

Better cover. Best prices.

If you run a dog walking or pet sitting business, then investing in the right business insurance is a must.

Here at Digital Risks, we provide tailored cover protecting dog walkers and pet sitters against all the risks they face while caring for their clients’ furry friends.

Even the most well-trained pets can be unpredictable, so public liability insurance for dog walkers should be a top priority, ensuring you’re protected in the event of any personal injury or property damage claims made against you.

You should also consider contents cover to protect all the equipment you rely on to make your business a success.

Whatever your requirements, we’ll have you covered in a few clicks.

What insurance do I need for a dog walking business?

We've designed world-class insurance and made it super simple to buy.

Building your cover

Caring for somebody else’s best animal pal means taking responsibility for the well-being of the pet itself, as well as members of the public you come into contact with.

If one of your clients’ pooches comes to harm while in your care, or if you accidentally cause injury or property damage to a member of the public, you could face legal claims and demands for compensation, even if you weren’t at fault. For example, if one of your canine charges escapes its leash and knocks down a passby, or if the dog itself is injured from running in front of a car, the bill for legal and compensation costs could run into the thousands, or more. So it makes sense to prepare for the worst.

Cover for your business essentials

You may also want to cover all the physical tools and equipment you use to run your dog walking business, from office furniture, to portable technology like laptops and smartphones. For this you’ll need contents and portable equipment insurance.

And finally, if you employ staff then employers’ liability cover is a legal requirement.
