Although you're unlikely to experience any issues on Pawshake, we understand that your pet may need protection against unexpected life events. When you book through Pawshake, your pet is covered with Pawshake's Peace of Mind Guarantee.
Your peace of mind is priceless, and we appreciate that you have chosen to be a part of our trusted community. That’s why this coverage is complimentary as part of your Pawshake booking.
The injuries or damages must result from care provided during a Pawshake stay or walk, and the Guarantee reimburses in the event the sitter or walker is unwilling or unable to pay those costs.
What should you do if the guest pet is injured?
This section provides veterinary coverage in case an injury has resulted from a Pawshake booking. There are no deductibles for any claim made. $ 2500 capped limit for veterinary expenses in relation to an injury to your pet(s) during the service. Only one claim per booking can be submitted.
Once the claim limit has been reached, the treatment of illness or injury will not be covered again. Additional costs for check-ups or follow-up treatments are covered for up to 30 days after the incident.
This section will pay the sums that pet sitters become legally obligated to pay as damages because of bodily injury to a third party person or damage to property of a third party.
