If you're a pet-loving entrepreneur seeking your next adventure, then you've found a business opportunity that's right for you!

Trupanion, North America's fastest growing medical pet insurance provider, is seeking to grow their independent partner network as they continue to develop their footprint throughout the US.

Supported by Trupanion's Seattle-based head office team, you will own your business and be in charge of nurturing a market with immense opportunity.

Enjoy the freedom and flexibility of being your own boss. Position yourself for success with a company that has blazed a trail in the industry since 2000, spearheading the growth of medical insurance for pets in your region.

The business opportunity of a lifetime

Dog and cat owners across North America spent over $62 billion taking care of their pets last year. We are a nation of animal lovers looking to do right by our four-legged friends. We feed them good food, take care of any preventative health needs (think fleas, ticks, and dental), and increasingly understand the importance of preparing for the unexpected. As a result, pet health insurance is on the brink of major growth, and Trupanion is looking for the support of independent contractors to help spread the word.

Being a Territory Partner offers a fulfilling, rewarding entrepreneurial opportunity for individuals seeking to achieve unlimited income by helping people and their beloved pets in local communities throughout North America.

With 13% annual growth and a market penetration below 1%, this is the perfect opportunity to be a pioneering force in introducing medical pet insurance to your region.

As a Territory Partner, you will be an independent business owner who earns revenue from Trupanion while helping veterinarians and pet owners provide the highest quality medical care to their pets. This is truly an opportunity where you can make a difference as you become the vital link between veterinary hospitals and our company. Territory Partners build relationships and educate veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and office staff about the importance of insuring pets. We rely on our field force to demonstrate the direct benefit to a veterinary practice, but also to explain the impact on the lives of companion animals and the families they serve.

"Then came the price of all of this...$6,000 up front. In a moment like that, it's hard to think about money when your best friend is suffering, but it’s a harsh reality. We knew that we had pet insurance, but we did not know the specifics of our policy. We quickly discovered just how amazing it was to have Trupanion! We called and were told that 90% would be covered."
