Breed Guide

Deciding which type of pet you should choose to join your family is often difficult! The choice is made easier if you know what their needs are and the type of life they are likely to enjoy, so you can be sure they will be a great addition to your family.

Some breeds are more suited to city living, others to an active, rural life; some are great with small children, while others would be better suited to families with teenagers and older kids.  Whatever the pet you choose, pedigree or a lovable mixed breed, the cost of insuring your pet is based on several factors, including breed, so we’ve put together a guide to help you with your choice.

Our breed guide gives you a useful summary of the characteristics, personality and activity level needs of some of North America’s favorite pets, as well as discussing the health issues your furry friend may face in the future. We’ll keep adding information on new breeds every month so keep checking back with us.

Whether you go for a dog or a cat, it is always a good idea to insure your new addition as soon as possible, so get a quote and choose the best policy for you and your pet, so you know your pet is covered for the unexpected.
