Why we've provided this info
Dog bite liability lawsuits are a reality today. Unfortunately, many good natured dogs are lumped in with agressive dogs by breed. Homeowners or landlords may not be aware that liability coverage may be excluded for the following breeds: Doberman, Rottweiler, Mastiff, Pitbull, Staffshire Terrier, Akita, Chow, Presa Canario, German Shephard, to name a few or any dog with a prior bite history. While we don't provide these policies directly, we've learned there is a need for them, as many carriers are now turning to "excluding coverage" rather than allowing more dog bite liability lawsuits to pile up. Landlords and homeowners should take note of these breeds to avoid being caught in the middle of a lawsuit. Also, the above list is not comprehensive. If you have a specific breed your concerned with, please check with your insurance agent or carrier and ask if the breed is excluded from coverage on your specific policy.
