Understanding Pet Insurance

One of the primary areas of pet insurance is called “Care, Custody & Control” Coverage

Care, Custody, and Control (CCC) Coverage is the key ingredient to insuring a pet sitter. This provides coverage for the clients’ pets and personal property in the sitter’s care, custody or control, which includes pets while in transport in a vehicle.

Veterinary medical expenses are also a part of the CCC Coverage and the pet sitter’s insurance policy pays for claims, regardless of the negligence/fault for accidents or injuries to pets.

We take our pet and home sitting services very seriously, and ensure that our insurance coverage is more than sufficient to cover damages, accidents, or injuries to pets and property.
