A man looks over some insurance documents beside his dog.

Owning a dog comes with everyday costs like food and toys, while it’s also possible to budget for regular vet treatments like vaccinations. But our pets’ playful nature can get them into scrapes, and unexpected, serious illnesses can develop with age. So, having dog insurance is a way to help you care for your pet.

What does Churchill dog insurance cover you against?

  • Up to £500 if your dog sadly dies through accident or illness.

  • Emergency kennel fees of up to £750 if you’re suddenly hospitalised.
