Dog Walker Insurance — Simplified.

Why do I need a dog walker insurance policy?

As a dog walker, accommodating your clients’ needs (and schedules!) is part of the job. You need insurance coverage that’s there just when you need it, whether that’s five minutes before a last-minute booking or months in advance.

The General Liability insurance arranged by Thimble is designed to respond to incidents involving bodily injury and property damage. For example:

Bodily Injury
While you are outside walking a client’s dog, a neighbor approaches and tries to pet him. The dog becomes aggressive and bites the neighbor, who has to get stitches.

Property Damage
While entering a client’s home after a walk with their dog, the leash gets tangled around an expensive floor lamp and knocks it over. The client asks that you reimburse them for the damage.


How much does small business insurance for dog walkers cost?

General Liability insurance policies for dog walkers start at $5/hour with $1 million in coverage and $0 deductible.

Add as many Additional Insureds as you’d like for free.
