Our Thoughts on Pet Insurance
Updated: Dec 30, 2020
After looking at several pet insurance companies, we chose Trupanion for our dogs because…
…they cover IVDD (disk disease, which is common in dachshunds).
…Trupanion covers 90% after the deductible is met, with no payout limits.
…they can pay your vet directly, rather than you having to pay out of pocket.
…waiting periods are 5 days for injuries & 30 days for illnesses (waived when activating a certificate).
As a breeder, we’re given certificates for a free month of insurance for each of our puppies to take home.
If you are a new Puppy Parent who needs to activate your free 30 days of puppy insurance with Trupanion, please click here or on the picture to the left to go to the Parents’ Page.

We have been fortunate enough to NOT need to file a claim with Trupanion, so we don’t have personal experience with the claims process. Our preference for this company is based solely on its face value and the information we have gathered from third parties. Please exercise due diligence in selecting the best form of care for your furry family members. Whether you choose to employ Trupanion, another pet insurance company, or none at all, we hope that you will share your experiences with us so that we can all benefit from our collective wisdom.
