List Of The Most Dangerous Dogs: Insurance Dog Breed Blacklist

More than one third of all homeowner’s insurance liability claims paid out in 2013 were related to dog bites.  The average claim was about $30,000, adding up to about $490 million for the year.  Insurance companies are concerned about these costs, so it has become common for them to blacklist certain breeds of dog.  While each company has a different list, the following fourteen breeds were the most common to be excluded from coverage:

  1. Pit Bull Terriers
  2. Staffordshire Terriers
  3. Rottweilers
  4. German Shepherds
  5. Presa Canarios
  6. Chows Chows
  7. Doberman Pinschers
  8. Akitas
  9. Wolf-Hydribs
  10. Mastiffs
  11. Can Corsos
  12. Great Danes
  13. Alaskan Malamutes
  14. Siberian Huskies
