New Fido in Your Future? Talk to Us First
What is cuter than a new puppy for your valentine? A new loyal companion can give you love for many happy years.
But the reality is that sometimes, whether indoors in that home in Lincolnshire or roaming the streets outside Chicago, dog behavior can go wrong. And although any dog can become dangerous under certain circumstances, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has researched more than 20 years of reported dog bite-related fatalities and found that certain breeds are statistically more likely to be involved. Here are the top five:
· Pit bull-type
· German shepherd
Regardless of breed, dogs are the leading source of claims under homeowners liability coverage. Some companies won't write a property insurance policy if you own a certain breed. With proper care and training, any dog's chances of hurting someone go down significantly.
If a new dog is in your future, or you’re planning a surprise of the canine variety this Valentine’s Day, talk with us first to discuss how your current homeowners, renters, or condo protection will respond in case of injury to others.
