Dog Liability Insurance

Because dogs are cute, but liability claims are not.

What is Dog Liability Insurance?

Dog Liability is like Private Liability Insurance but for your dog. It covers you against physical or material damages your four-legged friend might cause to others. Sometimes these damages can get quite costly, so just to make sure you are safe, we cover you up to 30 million euros.

Add useful toppings on top of your dog liability base to enhance the coverage.

Super friendly English speaking customer service, a rarity in Germany, and really good for expats who are still learning the language. Customer service was responsive throughout the whole period and made the processing, although a bit long, a very pleasant experience. Also probably the easiest insurance company I’ve ever had to deal with.

Answers to burning questions

What happens if my dog got bitten by an uninsured dog?

Basically, the following applies: The owner of the dog that has bitten or attacked is always liable. Even if the dog has no insurance cover. In this case, the costs of treating your dog or repairing the damage must be paid for out of your own pocket.


Am I insured if my dog destroys my own stuff?

We're sorry, but damage to your own belongings and to those living with you in your home, such as your family, is not covered.


Where can I see and access my contract?

This is very simple: As soon as got your Coya insurance, you will receive your policy documents by e-mail. Also, the 24/7 access to your dashboard will be activated, which enables you to have a look at your active insurances and contracts any time.


I have two dogs. Are both covered by one insurance?

Currently we can only insure one dog per contract. If you have two dogs and want to insure them, you have to conclude two contracts.
