Essential cover for dog walking field hire

If you hire out your field privately to dog walkers, you want to be certain that any risks for which you might be held responsible are suitably mitigated against. If something should go wrong, and someone makes a claim against you, you will be liable for the costs involved.

Provided your open space meets the criteria (see inset) our comprehensive cover for dog field hire protects you if a client or other third-party visiting the field by arrangement is injured or incurs damage to their property as a result of something you did or failed to do.

Should you require it, we can also provide optional cover for your legal expenses, should you be taken to court.

Whether you’re hiring out your field for the first time, or have an established roster of clients, Pet Business Insurance can arrange insurance cover to suit your needs. For more information, call today on 01284 736 874, or complete our enquiry form.
