Protect Your Dog With XINSURANCE: German Shepherd Liability Insurance
Within the US, a German Shepherd is a popular choice of pet. Out of the 78.2 million dogs across America, 3.5 million are German Shepherds. This breed’s popularity is largely down to its exceptional guard-dog qualities. However, this quality can also be to their detriment as they can also tend to be aggressive. This is why German Shepherd liability insurance is so important.
The German Shepherd is Considered a Dangerous Breed
In 2019, 17,802 dog bites were reported for insurance claims. While German Shepherds are relatively safe around humans compared with other breeds, they are among the worst breeds for biting other people’s dogs. Because of this, they rank third in the USA’s most dangerous dog breeds. Worldwide, they are the third-most-likely dog to be banned from ownership. (Source: allpetslife)
Why People Choose German Shepherds
Despite their “dangerous dog” label, millions of people still choose the breed as a pet or guard dog. They are fiercely protective and can be a safe and rewarding option for a family. Aside from their guarding qualities, German Shepherds are known for:
- Being one of the most intelligent breeds
- Having few health problems and a long lifespan despite being a pedigree breed
- Having an obedient, curious, and fun personality
- Being very easy to train
- Being incredibly loyal
- Having boundless energy
- Their ability to live in most climates
The German Shepherd’s popularity is set to continue. Those who choose the breed as their companion must do so in the knowledge that the dog can act out. Therefore, it’s essential to be protected through German Shepherd liability insurance.
XINSURANCE: German Shepherd Liability Insurance
Many dog owners assume that their homeowner’s insurance will cover their pet. However, this is not often the case, especially when it comes to dog bite coverage. Usually, the homeowner’s policy will exclude dangerous dog breeds or claims for dog bites, or they will have minimal coverage. In this case, it is essential to take out separate insurance coverage.
XINSURANCE is an insurance brokerage providing specialty liability solutions for occupations and animals that many insurers refuse to offer coverage for. XINSURANCE is powered by Evolution Insurance Brokers, LC (“EIB”), an excess and surplus lines insurance brokerage, and has been experts in liability coverage for over four decades.
