This course will help prepare agents and adjusters to evaluate and manage the exposures surrounding dog liability under the homeowners and other liability policies.

Dog bites and other canine-related liabilities generated more than one-third of the payouts under homeowners policies in 2015, according to the III. The cost per claim for dog bites increased from $16,919 in 2013 to $37,214 in 2015, a 94 percent payout increase.

This webinar will explore how to reduce canine liability through improved underwriting and claim investigation, as well as how to avoid coverage rescissions and agent E&O claims.
