Good to Know

We've gathered together all the details you need to better understand our working gun dog insurance product. Take a look at our FAQs and learn more about how we can help you protect what matters most to you.

Gun Dog Premier Plus provides cover for illness and injury specifically for Gun Dogs. Gun Dogs are any dog that has been trained to work with a gun or gamekeeper and is used to locate game by pointing or setting, and/or to find game and flush it out for the guns and/or to find and retrieve fallen game.

Yes, when selecting the breed, please select the most dominant breed. If neither of your pet’s breeds appear please contact our customer service line and we will be able to look further into the matter for you.

There is no cover for any pre-existing illnesses or injuries with this policy. This includes any illnesses which developed or started showing clinical signs before or within the first 14 days of the policy start date. Injuries which occur before or within the first 48 hours of the policy start date will not be covered.

We define a shoot as the use of Your Gun Dog for the pursuit of any non-domesticated mammal or bird for sport or food, whether formal or informal walked up or rough shooting, driven shooting or wildfowling or duck shooting, including use in competitions and field trials.

While your dog is actively involved in these events, they will be covered subject to the policy terms and conditions for injury and illness. There is no cover for Third Party Liability on this policy. 

Veterinary claims will be subject to a €175 fixed excess which is payable per condition per policy year.

If your pet is aged 5 years or above on the start date of the policy year, there will also be a 15% percentage excess of the remaining amount claimed after the fixed excess has been deducted. Please see your policy booklet for an example.
