I am the proud owner of a well-behaved, certified canine good citizen dog, who has been tested and proven to be VERY GENTLE with children, adults and other pets. She is obedience trained, and certified as non-aggressive and friendly, well-behaved. Still, my homeowner's policy (which I have had for a very long time) was at risk due to unfair breed-specific guidelines. My insurance agent helped me to find MAPFRE, and I am already thrilled to move my homeowner's and 2 auto policies to this company, which is clearly informed and fair. They approved my policy based on my dog's history and certifications vs. the uninformed and outdated policies banning breeds in general. I am now a new and happy customer-grateful to be welcomed to MAPFRE, a company who has already shown that all are welcome- even those with dogs that some fear, based on proven behavior vs. biology! Thank you, MAPFRE and company leaders who have taken the time to educate themselves in order to be open-minded and rational when considering new clients, and supporting existing clients. Most of us are responsible dog owners, generally offering rescue dogs a second chance and taking the responsibility seriously by providing training and proof of temperament in order to meet your policy guidelines. It was a refreshing to find your company after being shunned by less-informed, less-inclusive companies holding on to breed-specific biases, regardless of an individual dog's temperament and behavior history. I am grateful to be your new client!
