Detection Dog Handler

Detection Dog Handlers work in crucial sectors, providing security and acting as an alarm for certain substances. Their work ranges from finding missing people to detection of dangerous substances like explosives.

Working in traffic areas like airports and sports venues increases the risk greatly, having insurance to back you up when the unforeseen happens is a sensible decision.

Professional liability insurance

Professional liability insurance is highly recommended for detection dog handlers as it covers professionals from damages caused by occupational errors. Handlers and their canine partners have a close bond. But working with an animal partner means communication is still usually non-verbal, increasing the chance of miscommunication and misunderstanding. Mistakes are simply not an option when you are dealing with deadly substances in populated areas or criminals on the loose. Having a reliable professional liability insurance policy to act as a safety net is highly recommended.
