Here at Allianz Ireland we insure lots of pets, from German Shepherds to miniature Yorkshire Terriers, from Rag Dolls to Tabbies and many more. We wanted to understand who insures their pets?  Are  they neutered? Microchipped? And what are the most common breeds and names for dogs and cats in Ireland!

We have some really interesting findings, for example: Of our pet insurance policies sold last year, a huge 90% where for dogs! So it seems, we really are dog people. Interestingly the German Shepherd is the most commonly insured dog in Ireland, and oddly in Kilkenny the most commonly insured dog is the Hungarian Vizsla!

For our feline friends, the most commonly insured cat is the Domestic short hair and the most common name is Oscar. Check out our infographic below for more of our findings!
