Our dog loves to play, and sometimes plays with what he shouldn't. It happened when he passed the afternoon chewing off the carpet of the neighbor. Fortunately we have Liberty Pet that solves all these contingencies.

Decree-Law No. 312/2003 of 17 December laying down rules for the possession of potentially dangerous animals. According to it, the owner is required to hold a liability insurance with a minimum amount of € 50,000; for each pet.

Successful claims can be brought against dog owners who can be proven legally liable for the injury, illness or death of a third party occurring as a result of an incident in which the animal is involved. Without third party liability insurance dog owners, may find themselves paying compensation and costs awarded against them or a hefty legal bill to defend the claim.
