The Pet Industry Federation has launched a new insurance solution for dog groomers, pet sitters, dog walkers and home boarders, arranged by Jelf, to help ensure that they have the right cover in place to protect their businesses, at the right price.

Developed exclusively for PIF members and designed in conjunction with leading insurance broker, Jelf, this new insurance covers the core risks faced by dog groomers, sitters and walkers and includes an element of boarding insurance cover too for those businesses which look after dogs from one household at a time.

Features covered within the insurance include up to £5m public and products liability, care and non-negligence cover, and legal defence costs, as well as options to purchase loss of key cover, property, grooming equipment, employers’ liability and much more.  Annual standard cover starts from just £50.

Nigel Baker, Chief Executive of the Pet Industry Federation said: ‘We are delighted to offer dog grooming members, pet sitters, dog walkers and certain home boarding members this fantastic new insurance product. Jelf have talked to our members as part of their research and used this knowledge, expertise and professionalism to develop a highly competitive product which I can recommend to our members.’

This new insurance comes in the wake of a whole raft of new member benefits now available to PIF members which includes: discounted legal advice for businesses, their families and employees; access to audit, tax and financial advice all year round, a 24/7 regulatory legal helpline, regular legal updates and news, HR advice and discounted HR services.

Jelf will continue develop insurance packages for the other PIF associations.

Whether it’s time to renew now, or in the future, current PIF members should telephone 0845 869 5342 or email to arrange a quotation from Jelf or visit the PIF Membership Benefits website – to find out more details.
