Contact Your State Insurance Commissioner


If you are having difficulty obtaining homeowners' insurance due to the breed of dog you own, the AKC’s Government Relations department encourages you to contact the insurance commissioner in your state. The phone number can be found in the state government section of the blue pages of your phone book or by clicking on the appropriate link below. The commissioner can provide you with a list of all insurance companies doing business in your state. Work your way down the list to find out who can provide you with coverage that best suits your needs. If you feel you are being treated unfairly by your insurance company, share your experiences with the commissioner when you call.

In 2004, AKC’s Government Relations department sent a letter to every State Insurance Commissioner expressing our opposition to insurance discrimination based on breed. To view a sample of AKC’s letter to State Insurance Commissioners, click here.
