Gives You Financial Peace of Mind

You don’t need us to tell you that things can go wrong on the job. Unfortunately, fellow dog walkers have dealt with mishaps.

One pet professional was on a daily walk with their fur friend, Holly and disaster struck. The poor doggo was attacked by a misunderstood dog and things spiraled from there. Holly was losing a lot of blood and was rushed to the vet for help. Not the best dog walker appointment so far! Luckily, the vet was able to help Holly. All she needed was some stitches and a follow-up visit. On the bright side, Holly was a trooper.

Vet bill reimbursement provides coverage for medical expenses—regardless of who is at fault—for a client’s pet in your care, custody, or control. Depending on the covered claim, all you need to do is pay the $250 deductible.

Many pet professionals find this coverage beneficial for their businesses. It makes the clients happy knowing you are prepared. You never know what could happen during an appointment. On the off chance that it’s bad, you have coverage in place. You may not need to worry about a financial strain and paying for a bill on your own.

Comparing Employee Dishonesty Coverage & Bonding

PCI’s employee dishonesty coverage is similar to a bond, but there may be some key differences to consider.

Employee dishonesty coverage:

  • Can be purchased in the same transaction
  • Doesn’t run credit checks
  • Provides $10,000 per occurrence and $25,000 aggregate coverage

Bonds may differ from our dishonesty coverage by:

  • Checking your credit during the application process
  • Having a “Conviction Claus;” Often bonds won’t pay on claims unless there is a conviction
  • Many require you to reimbursement the bonding company after a claim is paid
