BREAKING DOWN 'Breeder's Insurance Policy'

Like all other businesses, breeding is often the livelihood of a family. Dog breeders and livestock owners stand to suffer greatly in the event of a loss. It is for this reason that all assets must be fully insured under a sound breeder's insurance policy. Liability insurance is also a must-have for all business owners.
