All About Working Dogs


Working dogs can work with livestock, assist you in the field or they might even be a gun dog used for shooting and hunting. Working dogs will need to be obedient, have a good temperament and be relatively easy to train. Since they could be performing a number of different tasks, some breeds are more suited to being a working dog than others.

Here are some of the best and most common breeds of working dog:

• Border Collie

• Springer Spaniel

• Labrador Retriever

• Cocker Spaniel

• Hungarian Vizsla

• Pointer

Public Liability insurance for your dog – sometimes referred to as Third Party Liability insurance – can provide up to £2million per event if your dog injures someone or damages property and you are held liable. Working dog insurance is essential for those who use their dogs for working.

If you’re out for a walk with your dog and they were to knock somebody over, then we can keep you covered if you’ve chosen our Public Liability option.

Heading out for a dog walk shouldn’t end in hefty compensation costs, which is why we offer dog owners – or someone that’s looking after your dog with your permission – Public Liability protection for claims of property damage or injury from a third party.
