Is Your Dog on an Insurance Prohibited List?

Published by Robert J Stillwell on February 14, 2019


Do you have a lovable dog that has a bad reputation simply because of its breed? Many Homeowners Insurance carriers steer clear of certain breeds of dogs because many believe that have a more aggressive disposition.

What Dog Breeds are often Blacklisted by Insurance Companies?

If you have one of the following dogs despite how well behaved it is, there is a good likelihood that insurance companies would be resistant to insuring you:

  • Pitbulls
  • Staffordshire Terrier
  • Rottweiler
  • Doberman Pinscher
  • Presa Canarias
  • Chow Chow
  • Any mix/variation of these breeds

This might not seem fair since your dog has never bit anyone or had a vicious temperament.

We have good news for you. We have a carrier that will write your Homeowner’s policy if you have one of the above mentioned dogs. They will not decline to write your insurance because you have a great dog that has a bad reputation simply because of its breed. We would be more than happy to get a quote from you from this A rated carrier. Give us a call today at 800-642-3490.
