Quality breeding deserves quality healthcare

As a breeder, you understand the importance of medical care for each and every litter. We help make that possible with comprehensive healthcare coverage from day one in their new homes. With Trupanion, dogs and cats are protected from new, unexpected illnesses and injuries for life, regardless of whether they’re show champions or family pets.

Breeder Support Program FAQs

You have questions, we have answers.

The Breeder Support Program allows you to send your litters home with a special Go Home Day Offer. This offer allows your buyers to try out Trupanion so they can get a happy, healthy start in their new home. The offer waives any applicable waiting periods or delayed effective date, so coverage starts immediately upon activation. There is also no upfront payment, so your buyers do not pay unless they choose to continue their coverage beyond the first 30 days.

* We are unable to defer the first month’s payment for buyers in New York, though they still are able to receive the waived waiting period benefit.

It’s simple! Once you sign up, we’ll email you a PDF of your personalized offer. You have the choice of scheduling an email reminder to go to the buyers, or printing copies to send home with each pet. Most of our breeders do both. From there, it’s up to the new owner to call or go online within 24 hours to activate their coverage.

The Breeder Support Program is completely free to join—there will never be a cost to you.

Absolutely! We can cover pets anywhere in Canada, the US, or Puerto Rico. If you’re in Australia, head over to our Australian Breeder Support Program.

You will be assigned a dedicated Relationship Manager when you join our program. Your Relationship Manager will provide you with a PDF of your Go Home Day Offer. They can also provide you with reporting upon request to view how many of your buyers are taking advantage of the offer, as well as the types of claims submitted.

While we periodically offer Trupanion goodies to show our thanks, we are unable to compensate breeders for their participation in our program.

To activate, we just need to collect the owner’s contact information and some basic information about their pet. If your buyer already knows they want to continue with Trupanion or if they live in New York, we’ll also collect their payment information.

No. The buyer must be the one who activates their offer. There are two reasons:
  1. It's illegal for somebody to activate insurance in someone else's name unless you're a properly licensed producer/agent.
  2. When a breeder activates, buyers don't understand what they're getting and it can result in confusion about coverage resulting in a poor experience for the buyer.

No. Because of our 24-hour activation window, you can only provide offers with pets as they're leaving your home — not after they already left. We encourage buyers who have already received their pets to check with their veterinarian to see if they provide our Exam Day Offers.

You do not have to register your litter with us. It is up to your buyers to activate their offer. You just need to provide it to them, and let them know to activate within 24 hours of getting their new pet.

No. Due to insurance regulations, we're unable to incentivize breeders based on activations or enrollments.

Any new accident or illness is eligible for coverage, including hereditary and congenital diseases.* Depending on your location, some breeds may face restrictions for certain breeding-related conditions.

Like most pet insurance companies, we do not cover pre-existing conditions. This includes conditions that are already showing signs or symptoms prior to activation. Preventative and routine care (like spaying and neutering) are also not eligible for coverage. You can learn more about our coverage here.

You can also call us any time with your policy questions at 888.615.8318.

*Terms and conditions apply. See the policy for details.

Monthly cost is based on a few factors, such as age, breed, gender, and location. If you or the new pet parent would like to get a better idea of what their monthly cost would look like, we encourage you to call us at 855.210.8749 or get a quote online.

No. While a lot of breeders have asked for this, it's not something that our current billing system supports. If you want to pay for your buyers, you would need to put your own payment information on the account, and then have the buyer call and switch it to their own payment information once the period of time ends.

We are unable to offer a discount for enrolling multiple pets.

No. At this time, we have no group plan for breeders. Each pet must be enrolled individually.

Unfortunately, our pricing model does not allow us to offer breeder discounts at this time.
