Did you know that dog bites account for more than one third of all homeowners insuirance liability claim dollars paid out in 2012. The average cost paid out for dog bite claims was $29,752 and California had the most dog bite claims and the most paid out in 2012 with 17.1 million in estimated claims costs.

Many carriers exclude coverage for dog liability, so it is important that you check your homeowners insurance policy to confirm what coverage you carry. It is tempting to take the lowest cost homeowners insurance plan but you may find yourself without the proper coverage.
