If you're running a canine club or dog-centred business you need Chris Knott's Canine Insurance in your life. You'll already have an idea what unpredictability means. One of the first things you do with a new dog is train them by putting appropriate controls in place - for their own protection and for others.
And so it is with our bespoke, modular, canine insurance which has been specifically designed with the needs of kennel clubs, training and agility groups, instructors, walkers, sitters (plus an array of other dog services and activites) in mind. We can even provide cover where live ammunition is used with gun dogs.
Why you should consider Canine Insurance....
However you operate, it is your duty to provide an environment that is safe for all. But what happens if a visitor or spectator is injured or perhaps their property is lost or damaged and they claim it was your fault? If a visitor was unfortunate enough to suffer an injury that prevented them from working, we've seen cases where the costs run into hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Even if a court decided you were not to blame, the cost of lawyers’ bills alone could potentially run into thousands that may not otherwise be recoverable.
Our affordable canine cover protects you from the full range of risks that may arise from carrying out your dog-related activities. Anything from running a business or a club to simply arranging a dog show or agility display.
At Chris Knott Insurance we want to ensure that, if you are ever put in the situation where someone looks to you for compensation, you have the right insurance cover in place. Canine Insurance enables you to defend and manage the claim and to protect your canine club or business from the financial impact.
