Deborah J Turner, CPCU, AAI
Deborah Turner and Largo Deborah J. Turner, CPCU, AAI has always been a dog lover. She is also President of Dean Insurance Agency, Inc. in Altamonte Springs, Florida. After the adoption of Jazz, a very challenging Mini Schnauzer, she began an extensive study of all things canine related. She read books, took classes, entered him in university studies and hired multiple trainers as she sought out a solution to his reactive behavior. The combination of her research on dogs and her intimate knowledge of the insurance industry, resulted in her recognizing that insurance companies were not asking the correct questions or they were misinterpreting the answers regarding dogs in the home. Having achieved the prestigious Chartered, Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation she began to further research the issue in order to write a paper around this "gap" in the insurance industry for the CPCU society. Although the paper was never published, she continued the study of dogs. Late in 2009, two life changing events happened. One was a conversation, and the other, a persistently "sniffing" schnauzer. The conversation was about the research project and she was simply asked "why not develop the concept into an insurance policy? Since many homeowners, tenant and umbrella policies now exclude Animal Liability including dog bites, Deb created the Covered Canine policy sold through F.I.D.O. The persistently "sniffing" Schnauzer, was one of her rescues, Largo, who, through his persistent and insistent sniffing of Deb's mouth, had actually alerted her to a rare oral cancer that only by his early detection was it found in time to save her life.
