So you have a new German shepherd puppy–congratulations! No doubt you have already made a pilgrimage to the local pet store to stock up on pet food, dishes, a leash, assorted grooming products, a comfy doggie bed, wee-wee pads (hello, housebreaking), and of course, plenty of treats and toys to keep your new friend happy and content. Another thing you might not have on your list but should definitely consider is dog bite liability insurance quotes from a reputable provider of such coverage.
Little and cute doesn’t last forever
Why? Consider that your little guy is going to more than quadruple in size and strength in just a number of months. No doubt you will do your best to socialize your pet properly, which can help reduce the likelihood that he will resort to biting behavior under normal interactions with friends and family. Nevertheless, an animal is just that–an animal, and thus is prone to following its deeply ingrained instincts which no amount of training can overcome one hundred percent of the time. Having a policy that protects you in the event your pet injures someone is a great way to reduce the liability that comes into play when owning a dog, particularly a larger breed.
Shop wisely and well
Not all insurers offer this type of coverage, so it is important to contact a professional insurance agent who can put you in touch with reputable companies that have the kind of protection you need at a competitive price. You’ll find that the peace of mind that comes with owning a policy is well worth the price of the premium. And the thousands of dollars or much more that a policy can save you in the event of an incident can mean the difference between financial stability and financial ruin.
