    Which pet insurance for bullmastiff puppy?

    Hi all,
    Had our pedigree bullmastiff puppy for a few weeks now, he's kc registered so had 6 weeks free insurance for him, but now want to know who are the best insurers to go with for this breed.
    Found these here: eandl.co.uk/ins…peteandl.co.uk/ins…pet quoted £11.30 per month for their gold cover, which includes £5000 vets fees, and £1000 death benefit, but i've not heard of them before, so was wondering if anyone else has had any experience? would really appreciate any advice anyone can give, thanks in advance, Becci.

    Thanks esims84, but i know where to get quotes from - i'm asking for people's recommendations and personal experiences though really.

    Just got a quote back from marks and spencers for nearly £40.00 per month :w00t: - the covers v.good, but i'm hoping there's another one that's just as good but cheaper?

    Bad choice but still.

    Your going to need a LOT of liability cover.

    Marks and Spencer is my favourite.

    I've pm'd you Becci :thumbsup:

    We use M&S - best benefits for cheapest premium. (for us anyway)
    Think we pay about £11 per month

    Not a bad choice as far as we're concerned as we love this breed - if i end up having to pay a higher premium, so be it - just asking for advice, not whether we've purchased a good choice of dog or not.

    hi, go with "petplan" best company around and they deal direct with vet and aslo premium wont go up, and make sure you have unlimited, eg; just in case dog develops a life long ilness and needs constant medicines and medical treatment they will pay out for the rest of your dogs life, as some insurances have a limit, very miss leading, so be careful

    and also a beautiful breed of dog, i love them!!:thumbsup:

    I use M&S money.

    I got a quote of something like £12 p/m with a £30 excess - changed the excess to zero, and was requoted 10p dearer lol

    Had no problems claiming either

    When renewal come, they put it up to £15 per month with a £40 excess, so i cancelled it, then re-applied on the net and got my zero excess back for £12 per month, all in the misses' name

    Never go for E&L. They won't do lifetime cover and if you claim, they will drop you like a stone when it comes to renewal. (I was told this by the company itself)

    I've used petplan for years, I have lifetime cover with them and they will pay out year after year for the same condition. I'm suprised one of our cats hasn't put them out of business yet he is so accident prone. I'd also suggest getting lifetime cover, otherwise if your pet does have an accident sometimes companies then won't insure certain parts of them again. If it hadn't been for the cats lifetime cover we wouldn't be able to get insurance on 3 of his 4 legs anymore.

    Lifetime cover may not be the cheapest, but it is definatley worth it!

    we are with kennel club - meant to change, just didnt get around to it (busy life) mistake.

    we have had to claim for my german shepherd, two ops on his front elbows, policy has £50 excess plus 10% of bill

    I am so keen to find a bargain and am up on all other financial matters, can't believe I let it slip

    Please don't take my comment the wrong way.

    Just my experience with the breed is not good, as long as you don't have another dog and don't let it off the lead whilst out walking then they are fine. Of course some will be different, depending on owner and upbringing. But having been bitten by one and had my dog attacked by another you can see where I am coming from!

    I still highly recommend M&S.

    That's fair enough - and yes it does depend on the owner and upbringing, and also where you purchase from - a reputible breeder will only breed parents with excellent tempraments to produce litters that will not only make loyal, loving family pets, but to also try & stop the bad press they recieve, because of stupid people having them purely as a status symbol, using them as guard dogs & teaching them to be aggressive.

    I'm really sorry you've had such awful experiences with Bullmastiff's, because they can be such wonderful dogs.

    A dog is similar to a child, its all in the handling/bringing up. Too many breeds are tarred with the "nice breed, bad breed" brush, look at the owners, dont blame the dogs :-D
