Dangerous Dogs - The Dog Breeds Insurance Companies Avoid

Homeowners Insurance - Dangerous Dog Breeds

1 out of every 3 liability insurance claims are dog bites. Since the average dog bit claim costs $37,051, insurance companies get nervous when they see dogs with a history of aggressively defending their human or home turf. These dogs worry insurance companies more than most:

1. Presa Canario


Weighing in at just under 100 pounds, this notorious gym rat doesn't skip leg day. The dinner scraps won't cut it, just throw the whole steak. 
 

2. Chow Chows


This fluffy lion is deceptively fast. We aren't in Kansas anymore, Dorothy. 
 

3. German Shepherds


Civilized, loyal, operative. Safety second. Don't you dare stir my martini. 
 

4. Rottweilers


I love you.
I got your back.
John's back is tasty.
 

5. Staffordshire Terrier


When I get bored, I get angry. You won't like me when I'm angry. Squirrel? Squirrel?
 

6. Pitbull Terrier


#1 when it comes to dog bite claims.
What do you get when you cross a chicken and a Pitbull?
Just the Pitbull
 

7. Akita


Majestic, Stoic, Courageous. Goes from 0 to 100 in a snap  - don't get caught in the crosshairs.  
 

8. Doberman Pinschers


The athlete that got accepted to MENSA. Don't piss me off or I will strike with precision.
 

9. Mastiffs


A dignified, good natured pup. The Mastiff is protective and large. Sometimes I bite, I guess. 
 

10. Alaskan Malamute


Your very own sled dog. Strength + Power. Raw power.
 

11. Siberian Husky


Look into my eyes.
 

12. Wolf Hybrids


Alright Jon Snow, you can have Dragonstone back already.

With $700 million in liability claims last year, dog bites are a very real risk for insurance companies. Now you know which dogs they cringe over.
