Pet Insurance

Thoughts on Pet Insurance

Some buyers decide to purchase pet insurance while others do not.  It is up to you.  I can tell you that in most cases the first 2 years of your puppy’s life is when they are at the highest risk of getting into something toxic, ingesting toys or other objects that may cause a blockage or getting hurt by rough housing around.  As you will see below, I am giving you a couple of options for 30 days of free insurance.   Whether you choose to continue with a policy, choose a different company or choose to have no pet insurance is up to you once the 30-day period has elapsed.   I am just providing this to you in case you have a major emergency or accident within the first 30 days. 

If you would like to compare pet insurance policies, please visit the following website.  Sometimes pet insurance is also available through your employer or as an add on from your current home or auto insurance company may offer it as an add on.  This page gives you general info on pet insurance.  Click on the Comparison Fact Sheet link to compare pet insurances.

Options for 30 Days of Free Insurance

Option 1: Pet Partners through AKC & AKC Reunite

When you enroll your puppy through AKC Reunite, as a special benefit, you will receive 30 days of free pet insurance.  On the bottom of your enrollment confirmation email you will find this Special Benefit offer.  Simply click on the link in your confirmation email and enroll your pup to get 30 days of free insurance.  You must activate this offer within 28 days of your enrollment.

This is the same company that offers 30 days of free insurance if your puppy is registered with AKC and you choose to complete registration on your puppy.  If you complete the AKC registration and choose to stick with this company, you will also receive 10% off a policy since I am a Bred with Heart Breeder.  Simply enroll online and use the Group Code AKCBWH.

Option 2: Trupanion Pet Insurance

As a Good Dog breeder, I am able to partner with Trupanion because it is another way  to give you 30 days of free insurance.  I do like the fact that when you enroll as a puppy there are not any preexisting conditions, and your policy will be priced as a puppy for the rest of its life.  They also have a lifetime deductible per condition not yearly.  Do a comparison for yourself and see if it is something that you want to buy.

You will need to activate this insurance the day before you take possession of your puppy.  The cost of your wellness exam and shots are not covered.  This policy will cover accidents or injuries that might occur within the first 30 days of getting your puppy.  They are puppies….that means that they will get into everything that they can and learn about the world through their mouth so unfortunately sometimes they chew on items that are not puppy safe.
