Pet Boarding

Do you run a pet boarding facility or offer dog or cat boarding as one of your pet care services? If so, you’re in the right place. There is one BIG difference between the Boarding business and other types of businesses – it’s the pets! That’s not news to you, but most insurance policies ignore the pets. PROfur includes them.

Managing a lot of animals with many different breeds and varying degrees of behavior in one place at a time requires specialized knowledge. It also requires specialized insurance to protect you against the liability of accidental injury or loss of the pets themselves while they’re in your care, or for your professional liability should you provide pet care instruction or advice to your clients. We too have specialized knowledge and have used it to make it easy for you get a customized, cost-effective PROfur insurance policy that does a complete job of covering your business (including the pets!).

Here are the types of boarding services we cover for you:

  • Indoor/outdoor play areas, runs & suites
  • Playgroups
  • Treadmill Walking
  • Facility or owner supplied food & treats
  • Dog walking for exercise & washroom breaks
  • “At home” care for those pets who may go home with you or your employees for some TLC
  • Merchandise retailing
  • Pickup & drop-off services (pet taxi) – dogs are covered while in the vehicle (this policy does not cover the vehicle itself – you still need your auto insurance policy)
