Fairmount Pet Service is Bonded and Insured through Pet Sitters Associates, LLC. It’s mainly for your peace of mind: you are protected from financial loss if any accidents or damage occur while caring for your pets. As well, my dogs are always on their leash, and I make sure to keep control when approaching other dogs or people. Since 2009 I have had to contact the insurance company for a claim only one time: for a puppy that got out of his crate and chewed the owners’ shoes. That’s the only time, and the crate that he was in was old and didn’t close correctly. Meaning, I don’t think it was me who forgot to close the crate, but the woman got a new pair of shoes anyway. Just let me know if there is ever an issue, and I can submit a claim to the insurance company.
