Embrace Pet Insurance Partners with DockDogs® to Promote the Health and Wellbeing of Canine Athletes

Embrace Pet Insurance becomes the official pet health insurance provider to the DockDogs® community

DockDogs®, the world’s premier canine aquatics competition, and Embrace Pet Insurance, provider of comprehensive health insurance products for cats and dogs across the U.S., have jumped into a partnership to protect canine athletes.

“Canine athletes are exceptional dogs often at the peak of physical fitness,” commented Embrace CEO and Cofounder Laura Bennett. “But even the finest athletes can be derailed by an unexpected accident or illness. Embrace Pet Insurance wants to be there to help guarantee that expensive veterinary bills never keep these dogs from getting the finest care so they can get back to doing what they love with the people they love.”

DockDogs® offers high-flying fun with competition across the U.S. and internationally in four areas: Big Air, Extreme Vertical, Speed Retrieve, and Iron Dog, the combining of all three. With a zero discrimination policy, all purebred and mixed breed dogs are welcome to participate in events that run January through November, culminating with the DockDogs World Championships in Dubuque, Iowa.

With this partnership, Embrace becomes the official pet health insurance of DockDogs® and will sponsor a group of Embrace Ambassador teams to be selected from applicants across the country. Sponsored teams will embody the drive, determination, and physical prowess required to excel as a canine athlete and will enjoy exclusive perks and benefits from both Embrace and the DockDogs® organization.

“As a part of the foundation of DockDogs® we like to promote a healthy and active lifestyle with our canine companions, and with the support and services that Embrace offers, our community can benefit in the event of a unforeseen injury or illness that sometimes affect us unexpectedly,” commented Grant Reeves, CEO of DockDogs Inc. “It’s nice to know that the core values and compassion that the DockDogs® community holds in such high regard is also a key part of the Embrace program. We welcome Embrace Pet Insurance as the official pet health insurance provider to the DockDogs® community.”
