About this group

Staffie, Staffordshire Bull Terrier Pet Insurance

Spirited, super-friendly and almost permanently stuck in fifth gear, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a small muscular dog with a big soft heart. Staffies are overwhelmingly fond of people, which is why they never make great guard dogs – any intruder encountering a Staffie would be ‘tackled’ only by an excited leg-pawing and a good face-licking. And few dogs can compare to the Staffie in his fondness for children: hence his nickname, ‘the Nanny dog’.

For these reasons, Staffie owners are rightfully frustrated by the bad image their pals are sometimes given. As RSPCA chief vet, Mark Evans, said: "Staffies have had a terrible press, but this is not of their own making - in fact they're wonderful dogs. If people think that Staffies have problems, they're looking at the wrong end of the dog lead! When well cared for and properly trained they can make brilliant companions.”

Staffies have energy to burn in abundance, so regular exercise is a must. And because they’re so incredibly fond of people, they’re happiest in company; owners should try to avoid leaving them alone for long stretches of time.

Pre-existing Conditions Covered with Lifetime Pet Cover - 11year Old Staffordshire Bull Terrier

  • avatar for KairenKairen 1 year ago

    The quote I got from Lifetime Pet Cover, is higher than my current insurer Animal Friends. I tried LV, but much more than Animal Friends. What has interested me about the Lifetime Pet Cover T&C's is that they state: However a condition will cease to be a pre-existing condition if a) there have been no symptoms or clinical signs of the condition; and b) You have not consulted any vet with respect to the Condition; and c) Your pet has not received any treatment for or in connection with the condition for a continuous period of 24 calendar months. If your pet has a chronic condition, cover will not be provided by this policy. Staffordshire Bull Terriers are one of many breeds that seem to be prone to Mast Cell Tumours and the wording above, seems to be indicating that if my boy doesn't have any symptoms/clinical signs or has received treatment for a mast cell tumour in 24 months, he would be covered. I am curious to know if anyone is with Lifetime Pet Cover and had come across any issues when claiming?

  • avatar for DavidDavid (Bought By Many staff) 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Hi Dave Sorry to hear that your quote didn't work out. How insurers decide their prices is sometimes a bit hard for us to understand too...! Can I ask where you found the cheaper cover? Our deal is usually excellent for multi-pet policies so it'd be great to know where we find a better deal for our members. Hopefully you've found some good cover at a good price. Cheers, David
