Your Dog Can Affect Your Florida Home Insurance Policy

        There a few dog breeds that have bad reputations when it comes to aggressive behavior and insurance claims. When it comes to deciding what dog to purchase for your next pet, it would be wise to think about your current or future insurance companies. Many companies will not provide liability to those who own dogs such as: the Akita, Chows, Pit Bulls, Doberman, Rottweiler, Presa Canarios, Wolf Dog Hybrids, German Shepherds (especially if it has police or military training), American Eskimos, or a mix of any of these breeds. Though you probably would rather not think of insurance when choosing your next pet, the dog you choose could limit your insurance options. If your dog bites someone, you would not have liability insurance to cover a claim.
