Unless specifically stated, renters insurance extends liability coverage to your pet. This also applies to situations outside of your home. For instance, if your dog bites someone at the park, the liability portion of your renters policy would cover the injured party's medical expenses and your legal costs if you're sued. Keep in mind that certain dog breeds considered to be "aggressive" may be excluded from coverage. Learn more about pets and renters insurance here.
