When I purchased the dogs from the breeder, she registered them with AKC and then, a recommendation coupon came with it. It was the first time I got an AKC dog and for catastrophic situations, it would be good to have. Since that was what AKC put in their materials, I decided to go with it. I’ve been a policyholder with AKC for 12 years. I started with their top tier and then as the dogs got older, I went down a couple of notches because of the cost. But both the dogs are gone now. They ended up being horribly ill for 12 years. Both of them had lots of major issues which cost $4,000 at a pop. PetPartners was fantastic. They walked me through everything and took into consideration my personal issues. They stepped up and helped me out whenever possible. In the latter years, I was so happy with them and so thankful that for the last five years I've been sending them gift baskets at Christmas. You usually don’t hear about that with insurance companies. I told my primary physician, my friends, anybody and everybody that has dogs who wants to talk about dogs and insurance that “This is the company.” AKC Pet Insurance is always great, they never failed me and made accommodations for me. I had issues of my own then I dropped the ball and they treated me like family. They didn’t treat me like a customer. They paid out like $12,000 to $20,000 over the course of 12 years and hundreds of claims. It was a plethora of issues over and over again. Same song, different verse. One dog went blind, the other dog’s hips went out, two eye injuries over the years and sepsis from the blindness. They were always fast, never gave me any hassles nor questioned anything and no issues at all. When they heard about the dogs, they expressed their condolences in a heartfelt way. No insurance company can do more than these guys did and the experience was better than anything I could have ever imagined.
