What insurance do I need as a dog walker?

Public liability insurance is often a very important cover for dog walkers and pet sitters, in case someone is injured or their property harmed because of your business. Simply Business offers between £1 million and £5 million in cover, to protect you against this cost.

If you run your dog walking business from home, another key consideration is any specialist tools or business equipment you have – even if this is just simple IT equipment. Our business content options will help take care of the day to day risks, insuring your business contents separately from your home contents.

Dog walker insurance policy details

  • Make sure you read your policy documents carefully and that you understand any exclusions that may apply
  • If you offer services aside from just dog walking – such as kennel care or grooming – make sure you tell us when completing the form 
  • If you employ people, even in your own home, you’re legally obliged to take out employers’ liability insurance. Not doing this could lead to a heavy fine
