Why You Should Tell Your Insurance Company You Have a Doberman Pinscher ?
Many people don’t worry about keeping their home insurance company in-the-know when it comes to the dogs they own. ?However, you want to make sure you let your home owner insurance company know if you purchase a dog. That way if you ever have a claim, they don’t have a reason to cancel your policy when you need it most, because you didn’t disclose your dog and its liability to them.
