Will homeowner's insurance go up if you buy a pit bull?

Home Insurance and Pit Bulls

The question should not be - will it go up? The question should be, will they insure you "AT ALL" any more? Most insurers these day avoid providing all risk home insurance coverage for owners of certain dog breed types.

Many Home Insurance Companies nowadays automatically exclude coverage for injuries or damages related to pets, especially certain dog breeds.

There are many pet owners out there who are confident that their pit bull would never injure a person. However, the statistics prove that they will. It's not the dogs fault, it was bred in and is simply endemic to the breed.

From an insurance companies point of view, it could be a pretty big liability to them and that is understandable, BUT I think they should at least do some sort of checking into it, like weather the dog has bitten anyone in the past or things like that, instead of just dropping it like a hot brick!

However, to clarify, almost all major insurance carriers reserve the right to withhold payment on any animal attack claim for the insured homeowner if the animal involved was either a pit-bull or one of the other 9 dog breeds on the standard list of breeds listed because of number of attacks on humans or other animals. This said, the owner will still be held liable and civil action in such suits can incur the sale of property to satisfy the claim awarded by the court. This is something to consider since many claims against pet owners after an attack may reach a sum of tens of thousands and perhaps hundreds of thousands of dollars. Or more.

Most insurance companies will ask, but never actually check.

Nationwide will insure your home if your pit-bull has passed the Canine Good Citizen program.

However, a standard waiver form may still be required which will release the insurance company from claims concerning animal or human attacks. In addition, since you have indicated to the agent that you do own such an animal, the insurance company can use that to cancel you at any time and to withhold claim payment for any animal attack issue.

Actually insurance companies always inspect a dwelling upon a new policy being written. You may not be aware of the inspection. Nationwide contracts out inspectors to inspect new insured dwellings and most times will preform inspections prior to renewal.

Note: You should always be up front and NEVER knowingly provide false or misleading information when it comes to an insurance contract. You are paying premiums for protection in the event of a loss. You don't want to jeopardize a claim with a misrepresentation. And no, Nationwide will not write a homeowners policy if you have a pit bull.

Can a pitbull kill a buck deer?

Possibly. A buck on the rut might injure or kill a pitbull if it was really angry. Bucks with sharp horns and sharp hooves can kill an attacking pitbull before the pitbull had a chance to bite its throat. However, if the pitbull is large, then it could kill the buck deer if it avoided its horns/hooves. Pitbulls have the strength to hold on to the deer's throat to kill it. If pitbulls can kill goats, hogs, or young calves, then it might kill a buck as well.

How can you tell if your pitbull is not mix?

There are mixs that are hard to tell. Whoever sold you the dog, probably has the answer. If not, testing the gameness is the only way but fighting dogs is illegal and wikianswer and myself dont's sponsor dog fights.

How can you tell if your pitbull is real without papers?

Well, remember that the true way to find that is illegal so you must used the other gaming feature these dogs show. From example, weight pulling. Other dogs quit pulling but a true pit bull will never quit.

What pit bull bloodline is the gameness?

When you have a real pitbull line, the dog comes out game. You don't even have to test fight your dog to know that. For example, if you mix a Colby with a Cooper, even if you don't have papers, the pups will come out game. If you mix a dog that has many bloodlines in his veins and a bith with a mix of many bloodlines in her veins, the pups will come out game.

Botom line is that a real pitbull with a real pitbull no matter the bloodline will breed game dogs.

What about blue buffalo for pit bulls?

Awesome food. My pits did wonderful on it. I like it because it's all human grade, made and sourced in US (with the exception of their new zealand lamb) and better cooking procedures that maintain nutrient quality. There regular food is great, and they also offer a high protein grain free that many pit people at the pet store I work at swear by.

Colby rednose pitbull?

Jonh P Colby was a icon in the early breeding of the pitbull. I myself had a Colby line pitbull. Now, Colby did not work the red line. If you mix a Colby with a red line pitbull, don't worry. It will be as game and that is a good blood mix.

What is a Pit Bull?

American Pit Bull Terriers, also known as American Pit Bulls, are a pure breed of dog (one of the earliest registered) which has been used for many different uses over the years. They were originally bred to work closely with humans to control large animals, such as bulls, and to hunt bears, boar, and other animals. Later, they were used as farm dogs in the early West days in America, and unfortunately also for dog fighting. They have always been tempramentally sound, and very people friendly. As they became more popular in the 1990's, a sudden increase in poorly bred specimens and ill-equipped owners caused the breed to develop a bad name.. and they are still stuck with a bad rap today. Most members of the breed are excellent citizens, and loving family members.. but in today's society, it takes only a few bad apples to taint the whole barrel. Media frenzy has caused many supposed "pit bull" attacks to be mis-named, where in fact it was a completely different breed of dog responsible.

here are some sites that will give you a good idea of the breed:

a pittbull is a dog that is in the working group. it's not a vicious dog unless you train it, but you might have dumb neighbors and they can bark at him or her and distract him with a ball. a kid on our block driibled a ball and the pitt bull jump over a fence and chased the kid and ball kid did not get bitt but he pissed in his pants and cried

PIT BULLS ARE NOT BAD DOGS. As long as you have the ability and time to train and handle it, they can be intelligent, friendly, pleasure to know dogs. NEVER consider a pit bull you see as a bad dog at first glance.

a pit bull is a wonderful, loyal, smart, sweet breed of dog..it looks so tough and it is but it would not ever dare to use those muscles to kill or hurt anyone or anything unless trained that way. thanx to some people like Michael Vick and other dog fighters, the whole breed has been blamed for being evil..if u want to get one go ahead, u will get the best dog in the world!

remember this if it's not a pit, it's sh**

How do you make the bull terriers ears stick up?

Assuming you're asking about a puppy's ears, there are different ways of getting its ears to stand up and you should ask your breeder or veterinarian to show you the techniques.

Done incorrectly, you can permanently damage the puppy's ears.

What is a colby pit bull dog?

I'm assuming this question is refering to the Colby line of American Pit Bull Terriers started in1889 by John Colby. Colby's Primo was chosen to be the first standard for the American Staffordshire Terrier for the American Kennel Club. Both Ameican Pit Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers were once the same breed (hence the standard being based on a Colby dog). However, due to selective breeding over the last 70 years they have been bred to different standards resultiing in many people recognising them as two distinct breeds. Another view on this is that one is a working strain (APBT) whilst the other is a show variant (AST). It's worth doing your ownresearch and forming your own opinion. To throw into this the fact that APBT and AST were mainly bred from UK and Irish Pit dogs which later became known as the Staffordshire Bull Terrier the debabte gets even more complicated!!! Back to the Colby dogs - Colby dogs have always been well respected for their temperment, gameness and conformation. Making them in many peoples view the ultimate American Pit Bull Terrier. Unlike the modern stereo type of a APBT Colby dogs were not huge with massive heads - infact they were fit, well muscled but still agile dogs that were capable of a full days work their influenceing factors were temperment, gameness and abilty whilst conformation came well down the list! Personally i think with most breeds this would be a good idea. Especially in the Staffordshire Bull Terrier where some current breeders are producing dogs not respecting the Staffords of old! Anyway i hope this has helped a bit!

How do you condition your pitbull?

Pit Bulls can be conditioned by hand walking, running a treadmill, dragging weight, swimming, a variety of exercises. Different exercises work different muscle groups, and build different kinds of muscle. Hand-walking, jogging, running alongside a bike tend to build lean muscle. Where as hauling weight or running on a hard-turning carpet mill will build a bulkier kind of muscle. (Bulkier muscles tend to have a harder time shedding heat, so most people conditioning a dog will go for exercises which build lean muscle.)

Be sure to allow plenty of time for rest, and good feed. Most people choose to up a dog's feed a bit during a conditioning period, thereby working them down to their lean weight, rather than starving them down to it.

all this exercises recommendations are very clear and right. I take my pit bull swimming walking playing in the park and weight pulling. They have a lot of energy and are hard to tire down. One of the first things I do when the dog is a puppy, is to walk him around the school near my house so the children play with him to get him used to being nice with children and other persons outside my home.

Bogging is my preference. I find a nice swampy area with fairly deep mud preferably thick and hard to slog through and remove collars/harnesses before telling my dogs to go for it. They typically spend 30 to 45 minutes dragging themselves around in it before we go for our swim and bike ride home. Mud isn't as low impact as swimming but the resistance it provides works nicely for stamina, toning and if your mud is all natural it helps with potential skin issues (IE dandruff and such) as well as tiring the dogs nicely.
