As well as being your best friend and assistant, your sheep dog can be worth a lot of money – many are valued around €3,000 and more. As part of your sheep farm insurance policy, we can add on cover for your working dog.
The only way to insure a working dog in Ireland, at the moment, is under the pedigree section of a farm insurance policy. This has an age restriction of 5 years old for new business and 7 years of age for renewals. This will cover it for death by accident, illness or disease and also for unexplained disappearance and theft. We think that this is quite young and are glad to be able to tell you that we have successfully negotiated a higher age limit for some of our clients.
