B&BTD provides insurance that protects our members and the B&BTD in event of an injury to an adult or child being visited by the B&B therapy dog team. The exchange with the therapy dog that caused the injury must be during a B&BTD sponsored visit within our guidelines.
Our coverage applies only to registered “volunteer” dog/handler teams in good standing. Members who take their dogs to work and use them as therapy dogs at their place of employment such as teachers, therapists, doctors, or psychologists, are NOT covered by this policy. Volunteer visitation, covered by B&B guidelines at facilities as a sponsored B&BTD event, is permitted. However, dogs may not stay at school, offices, or facilities all day and expect insurance coverage while dormant.
