As a pet sitter, chances are you’re an animal lover. Furry, feathered or finned, you’re happiest around your customers’ favourite companions. However, as fun as they are, animals are very unpredictable creatures. With your back turned for only a few seconds, anything can happen. You can be left liable for these unexpected incidents – from a scratched-up couch to a serious injury to another person or animal.
Pet sitter insurance is important whether you run a fully-fledged pet boarding business or dog sitting is simply a way to make a bit of extra cash each month. While liability coverage is often the most obvious reason to find insurance, it can also help you grow your business. Insurance coverage gives prospective customers peace of mind and provides extra confidence that your business is legitimate, responsible and reputable.
