Less than 15,000 claims paid out per year...Seems rather low. Gotta wonder how many dogs out there have no insurance coverage?...

Most of them.

In 2001, the CDC reports that about 370,000 people were treated in US emergency rooms for dog bite injuries. Of this, over 6,000 required hospitalization (average stay nearly 3 days). This is data from 7 years ago. One might assume that up to 400,000 receive emergency care treatment for these bites today. So basically, 385,000 dog bite victims annually pay the medical costs themselves...96% of incidents, at least, are not paid through homeowners insurance claims.
