Some insurance companies have a strict decline policy
, while others, like Liberty Mutual
, will allow some dogs with an extra fee
The nurture vs. nature debate with large dog breeds has been raging for years. Many fans of these breeds feel the owner and training determine a dog’s temperament, and just as many people feel the opposite.
Numbers and statistics is what drives insurance. To date, pit bulls make up the bulk of reported attacks and the average payout for a dog bite is around $37,000. This is why companies err on the side of caution.
You may not be able to *lower your policy rate** with Liberty Mutual, but State Farm
may be a great choice for you. State Farm does not
have a breed restriction, and as long as your dog has a clean bite history, they shouldn’t
impact the rate of your policy.
Since you may be shopping around for a new homeowners policy, it is the perfect time to re-shop auto insurance as well. By bundling your auto and home insurance
with the same company, you can save by getting a multi-line discount
