What is kennel and cattery insurance?

Kennel and Cattery insurance covers the owners of both kennels and catteries, and the animals within their care throughout boarding.

Protectapets Business insurance policies for kennels & Catteries includes Public Liability, that will protect you should a member of the public suffer an injury and deem you and your business responsible. Non-Negligent cover also protects you should a cat or dog get injured in a situation out of your control.

This policy is suitable for people and businesses which are looking to cover their liability to the public whilst carrying out their business activities as a boarding kennel or cattery which is licensed. It is not suitable for those who are only boarding animals within their own homes. We do offer separate insurance policies that cover your pet whilst at home with our Home insurance policies.

Where you operate a commercial licensed boarding kennel or cattery, Protectapet can provide a specialist, tailor-made kennel and or cattery insurance policy to suit your requirements.

Do you need insurance for a dog kennel?

In Spain it is only 5 animals before you have to get the kennel permit.

Many local and regional governments require dog kennel businesses to have insurance. Some areas require you to show proof of insurance before granting you a business license. If your insurance lapses, you could face fines or closure!

What insurance do I need to run a cattery?

To safely run your cattery business you will need:

  • Public liability – This covers legal claims if you injure someone or damage their property.
  • Professional indemnity - covers claims made by clients for loss or damage due to negligent advice or services.

If you're an employee of a Cattery or Kennel you won't need to buy insurance, however, it may be worth checking with the company you're working for to make sure they have employers' liability cover, it's a legal requirement. The business will need employers' liability insurance even if you're volunteer.
