When you stroke or pet a dog, something extraordinary happens. The action immediately makes you feel very calm and relaxed and having a faithful friend by your side is also very reassuring and comforting. These feelings are extremely valuable for use in therapy across a range of different situations.
Therapy dogs are highly trained and certified making them a valuable asset in providing comfort to those that need it.

Commercial Therapy Dog Insurance
If you provide therapy dogs as a business, you’ll probably already be familiar with insurance for therapy dogs. You’ll likely have it in place already. A lot of people don’t realize, however, that the coverage tends only to cover volunteering activities. This means the insurance is only covering your therapy dogs if they engage in activities that do not involve payment.
If at any point you plan to use your therapy dogs for commercial work, you could be in for a shock if something happens and you find that your insurance is invalid. An incident could be devastating financially, so it’s important that you find an insurance that covers you for commercial therapy dogs and gives you peace of mind.
Thankfully, we have a solution!
Our solutions to Commercial Therapy Dog Insurance are designed to provide comprehensive insurance no matter what the activity is that your dog engages in. We pride ourselves on giving our customers peace of mind knowing they’re covered adequately for commercial activities.
The policy protects from claims against you as well as litigation and the coverage can be fully customized to suit your requirements. Furthermore, we cover any breed of dog, regardless of the experience they have so if you have a specific breed of dog that’s usually difficult to find insurance for, we at XINSURANCE can help you.
XINSURANCE is powered by Evolution Insurance Brokers, LC (“EIB”), an excess and surplus lines insurance brokerage. Our underwriting team has over 40 years of experience so you can be reassured that we are the experts in providing insurance solutions that perfectly fit your needs.
Do You Have Adequate Coverage?
We can even have a look at your existing policy for free and tell you if it’s providing adequate coverage or not because we believe it’s essential for people to know exactly what they’re paying for. Our goal is to help you avoid any problems that arise from not having the right insurance coverage.
We always hope for the best when engaging in commercial activities, but unfortunately, in this day and age, we have become a litigious society and the only way to combat that is to make sure you have the right protection in place.
If you get a therapy dog certification through an organization, you might already have liability insurance through the organization and certification. Thus, in some cases, you might not need our liability insurance coverage but in other cases, you might! Most of the time, included insurance coverage only covers volunteering. We typically pick up where the other guys won’t cover you or if you want your own policy aside from any free offering. In any case, we can provide a free policy review and let you know if there are any gaps. If there are gaps that you want to be covered, then that’s where we can help!
