It is common nowadays for breeders to offer four or five weeks free insurance with their puppies and many new owners now expect this.
It’s a good idea to offer as it helps to protect your puppies first few weeks in its new home and also gives new owners time to shop around and find the right insurance for them, for those that don’t want to shop around it is easy to turn the free insurance into a paid for policy, normally needing nothing more than a phone call.
About the Buddies Breeder Scheme
Some breeder schemes you can register Kennel Club breeds and some those not yet on the register or mixed breed litters, new to the market Buddies Breeder Scheme covers all of these and it does not matter if you breed often or little.
I personally always send my puppies away with a few weeks free insurance, the peace of mind it offers is priceless but at the end of the day it costs nothing anyway so its all benefits and no draw backs. Insurers simply offer this service for free in the hope that new buyers will go on to activate full policies later and hopefully become life long customers.
Buddies Insurance are currently offering an outstanding promotion! Currently they are the only insurance company that will offer the breeder a cash reward, rather than the using a voucher system to payout. What does this mean for you as a breeder? It means you can offer peace of mind and receive actual cash to do with what you will!
Buddies are currently offering Essex Canine Pregnancy customers a promotion of £50 Breeder registration for joining the scheme. After this there is then an additional £50 when you register your first litter for the one month of free insurance cover. In additional to this £25 will be paid should the owners continue the insurance after the initial 4 weeks.
