Dangerous and Agressive Dogs
The Dangerous and Aggressive Dogs civil liability insurance comes in completion with the laws in Romania regarding the ownership of dogs. Thus, owners of dangerous dog breeds have to close a civil liability insurance policy for any damages these dogs may do.

Owners of such dog breeds are obligated by law to post inscriptions on the entrance door: “Aggressive dog”, “Be aware, dangerous dog” to bring to attention that such a dog exists in that area. They are also obligated by law to register their dogs with the police and to respect the laws that state that the dogs must be walked with special collars with safety mechanism and muzzle.
The Dangerous and Agressive Dogs civil liability insurance can be purchased individually or as an extra package to other insurance types, as well as the family civil liability insurance.

- damage or destruction of third party’s assets
- body damages, death of a third party
- legal costs and compensation that the insured needs to pay to a third party
- in some cases, the insurance covers the euthanasia of the aggressive dog, at the veterinary’s disposal
