I’d like to get a doberman but my parents are worried about our insurance droping us or raising our rates?
My mom’s had a doberman and my dad had a pit bull, both lived good happy lives, I have a labrador right now, it’s 9 years old and covered with tumors, we’ve asked our vet what we can do to help him but they say just make it’s remaining time enjoyable to the dog and my family, I get average grades in school, I’m a decent rank in the BSA and very mature compared to most of the people I know, Im willing to work hard and get all the money to pay for it myself all I need is permission but my mother tells me to ask my father and my father says his neighbors doberman was a wild animal. I’ve looked up information on them and informed him his neighbor probably mistreated it or did not assert himself as the master which is key in owning a doberman. My father then said he wasn’t convinced but was more concerned about our insurance rates, as the doberman pinscher is number 9 on the dangerous dog list we would have to get an extra coverage but my research hasn’t revealed any firm that would cover us and is still close to home and it hasn’t said how much of a price increase it is. If anyone has any knowledge on the topic or knows how I could prove to them I’m responsible enough for a doberman I’m open to suggestions. Thank you for taking the time to reade this and I hope you can help.
