Pet insurance

Are you a responsible dog dad?

Dudes With Dogs knows pet parenting is mostly smiles and puppy kisses, but when it's not, it can be awful. A dog eating a squeaky toy, resulting in multiple surgeries and eventual death (this happened to a member). Tragic accidents. Blown-out knees. Cancer. Genetic problems. Poisonous chewing gum.

The simple fact is that most of us are financially unprepared to handle high vet bills. So what do we do? We run up our credit cards, ask our families for money, rely on a GoFundMe campaign to beg from strangers, or worse. None of these are the actions of a responsible pet parent. What is? Setting aside a chunk of money each month for inevitable high vet bills. But since few people are disciplined enough to do that, what's the next best thing? Pet insurance.

We've always encouraged our members to be our best selves. But it's high time we also encouraged better financial responsibility as well. And we want to help.
