Why Insurance is Important for Kennels Operators

Kennels insurance is there to protect your business and your customers’ pets if something should go wrong.

It can help you to recover if your premises are damaged by a serious incident like fire or flood ‒ and even help replace lost earnings until everything is back the way it was before.

At the same time, dog kennels insurance can protect you if you are held liable for injury or illness affecting an employee or customer.

About the Kennels Industry

Just under 25% of UK’s adults own at least one pet dog and the estimated total population of dogs is just under 8.9 million[1], so it’s fair to assume there are lots of boarding kennels too.

It’s estimated that the annual cost of owning a dog is between £850 and £1200 which, on average, means a total lifetime cost of between £6,500 and £17,000[2], depending on breed and size. However, few owners would value their dog in pounds. They are treasured friends and companions – and their owners want to rely on boarding kennels as a safe, clean, and healthy environment for their dogs while they are away.

So, it’s important to give owners peace of mind that their dogs will be well looked after, happy and secure. Effective insurance is important and can be part of that, offering a little extra protection that customers value. Of course, insurance is there to protect kennel owners from the unexpected too.

So, think carefully before you buy kennel insurance or, even better, get expert help to work out the risks you need to defend against, and help you find the right insurance, at the right price.
