Dog gone liability

Q: " An agent allegedly lets a fenced-in dog out and the dog kills a smaller dog. Then the owner of the smaller dog threatens to sue for negligence. Does Commercial General Liability cover this? "

A: Yes, this would be covered. Pets are considered property in this situation. Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance protects against legal liability claims made by third parties who claim you have caused them financial or physical damage in the course of your general business services, not from services specific to your profession.
