We know that a dog is man's best friend. Why not insure him, too?


Pet owners spend a whopping $41 billion on their furry friends each year. That’s over $132 for each one of the 309,213,947 men, women, and children in the United States!

Insurance companies haven’t always viewed pets with the same passion as their owners. If you’re in an accident, generally everyone in the car - except your four-legged friend - is covered.

As an independent agency, Smart Planning Insurance Group is pleased to announce that Progressive Group of Insurance now recognizes Fido and Fifi as family members.  Did you know that Progressive policy has Collision coverage now extending to cats and dogs? The coverage pays up to $500 if your dog or cat is hurt or dies as a result of a car accident.

And, best of all, the coverage is free.

“We know how much our customers love their dogs and cats. Many of us have pets, too, and we feel the same way,” said Geoff Souser of Progressive. “As a Progressive representative we offer a long history of products and service innovations that prove you can teach an old dog new tricks. Knowing that most people think of their pets as family members, it felt like the right thing to do.”
