While I personally love dogs, and have two of my own, the companies that carry the insurance for your house, apartment, or condo might not. In fact, your dog’s breed might determine whether or not an insurance company is even willing to provide coverage for your home. There are a few breeds of dogs that are known to be aggressive with high rates of biting. One third of homeowner’s claims are due to dog bites and they cost an average of $29,396. So while you might love your furry friend, it’s important that you understand the risks of owning a dog.
Please take a moment and read some of the information that Erie Insurance has put out regarding being a responsible dog owner and how to prevent dog bites.
