Pet sitting insurance is specialized insurance coverage that protects professional pet sitters from financial liability resulting from mishaps on the job. Insurance policies cover pet sitters if a client's dog bites someone and allow sitters to avoid liability should a pet cause property damage.
According to Insureon, pet insurance may include general liability, property, business owner, worker's compensation and umbrella coverage. Professional United Pet Sitters LLC recommends that pet sitters seek insurance policies that include care, custody and control of pets. This coverage should extend to both the pet sitter's main place of business and the home of the client.
