Since we do not own the field that we train on, we train on a state fairgrounds, our club has insurance. We use SPORTSMENS'S Insurance. Our club is in California.

They are now saying that we have to have a "State entity number"... anyone ever heard of that?

What insurance company's do you use for your dog training group?

Sportsmen's changed their policies this last year and I know a lot of clubs that had issues and switched over, not just a CA issue. Call Kennel Pro, I use them for my business and one of the clubs I train with switched to them, saved money and got a better plan I believe. Haven't used my insurance yet but from what I read in my plan I really like the coverage for the price.

THANK YOU!! I will check with them and get a quote. I am NOT happy at all with Sportsmens insurance.


Our club has used Sportsmens since the early 2000's and have never had an issue before now. I am no longer happy with them, so wanted to switch to another company. In order for our club to get this "state entity number" we would have to be an LLC and all that crap.. we are a SMALL club (8-10 people) and are not a business or a non_profit.. the LLC would cost us $800 a year on top of the insurance price... plus we pay yearly dues to USCA.. plus the expense of a trial every year....

Sportsmen's told me to call our "secretary of state office" and get the entity number... which I called the state office 3 times (took me 3 hours total after being on hold) and all 3X the people at the state told me we do not need a "entity" number. So I told Sportsmens and they told me the state was wrong... lol.


So long story, I am doing the research for our small club and am wanting to find a insurance company that is honest and is not going to break the bank so to speak.

The small training group I was with was seriously considering disbanding if they needed all the stuff Sportsmans told them they needed so trying to spread the word in case others are in similar situations.
When pricing out insurance with Sportsmans they wouldn't even give a quote unless I provided them with all this LLC/EIN bs that I legally did not need for my type of business. Very misleading and not helpful at all.

Thanks for the info.. I will check out the Kennel Pro

We also just switched to Kennel Pro for the same reason, and as mentioned above, better coverage for lower cost, and no extra cost for additonal certificate of insurance.
