Why You Need Dog Trainer Insurance from PCI

Every dog trainer knows you need patience, persistence, and experience to succeed in the dog training industry. Knowing how to train dogs and actually turning that knowledge into a paying career are completely different. You’ve invested time to become a reputable dog trainer. After all that hard work it is important to protect your livelihood. With quality dog trainer insurance you can protect your hard earned finances and your business.

Dog Injury

If you are in the middle of a dog training session and the dog that is in your care gets injured, whether from another dog or an accident, you could be left liable for any vet bills that result from this injury. This is what vet bill reimbursement coverage is designed to take care of. Vet bills can get extremely expensive and dog trainer insurance can make sure that your business is not crippled by such an expense.

Here’s a scenario to show how this coverage could help you.

Dog trainer insurance can take care of the vet bills as long as you pay your deductible of $250. The insurance policy is designed to cover up to $1,000 in vet bills.

Human Injury

Dogs aren’t the only thing that can get injured when you are training. Keep in mind that the most experienced dog trainers run the risk of client injury. If that happens to you, a dog trainer insurance policy from Pet Care Insurance comes with a medical expense limit of $5,000. This type of coverage may reimburse for injuries you may be held liable for and it is designed to cover medical-related expenses.

For example, if the dog you are training bites two people during your session, PCI’s medical expense coverage could pay up to $5,000.

In the event your client takes you to court, we offer a $2,000,000 general liability coverage limit that may help you with legal fees and any damages you may be required to pay.

Property Damage

If you’re renting out a venue to hold a dog training class and the building catches fire, you could be responsible for paying for the damages. With Pet Care Insurance you would be covered under the damage to premises rented coverage up to $100,000.


The last thing a small business needs is another expense to worry about. That’s why we make dog training insurance affordable. Pet Care Insurance has the best values in the insurance industry and you can get dog trainer insurance starting at only $259/per year. Learn more information here.

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
