KC no longer giving free 4 week puppy insurance???

i have just noticed that the puppy insurance tickets to give to new owners no longer include 4 ( or 6 ) weeks free insurance instead there are vouchers to give to new owners with special offers and money back on transfer of ownership if they take the kc insurance? how long has this been for? there is also no where to tick on the kc papers for the insurance either so it must have been discontinued

Re: KC no longer giving free 4 week puppy insurance???

This is a relatively new idea form what I can gather.

The Free insurance is now only for Accredited Breeders - and is for four weeks, and activated by the breeder rather than the new owner.

Pet Plan do, I believe, offer four weeks insurance to breeders which they can activate.


====================

Have any of your new owners tried transferring their ownership online? as it used to be part of the registration process that the owner could activate their free insurance at the same time.

thank you for that the puppies dont leave until this weekend so i will tell the owners to do it online and see if that activates it? i have already looked into petplan as well seems a bit mean if it is only for acc breeders though?

tbh, and no disrespect to you rachybobs but i think the accredited breeder thing is just a complete waste of time and money spinner for the kc, they do no checks from what i can see but that is another thread completely

There are mixed views on the Accredited Breeder scheme - they are expanding their team of advisors who do checks - and in truth, it has to be seen as a move in the right direction.

They are also bringing in directions supposed from breed clubs on factors such as minimum ages for breeding, maximum number of litters, periods between litters etc.

Many AB's (including me) do far more testing than those recommended by the scheme, and I would like to see more brought in, but we do have to start somewhere, and I think, if handled correctly, the AB could be a move in the right direction.

i do understand what you are saying and agree to an extent but i know of many,many bad breeders that have jumped on the ab's bandwagon and passing themselves off as ' accredited breeder'
