Pet Talk Media

My unique experience with digital communications in the pet industry, and work in the environmental and outdoor industries, positions me as the perfect consultant to work with a pet-centric brand, or an outdoor brand that wants to expand into the pet-owner marketplace, to help them build a strong online community of pet owners. I also work with brands as a social marketer and influencer through my award-winning blog – You Did What With Your Wiener? – a travel and active lifestyle blog focused on doing those things with your dog. In addition, I can help brands get their product or service in front of the Seattle dog-owner community.

Canine Liability Dean Insurance

Debbie developed the Canine Liability Policy offering protection for dog owners in the event their dog(s) injures a person or another animal. Each dog is individually underwritten examining those characteristics that play a part in the propensity for dog biting. Policy limits range from $25,000-$300,000. Debbie also has the ability to include additional insureds if required. In stark contrast to other programs, Canine Liability insurance does not exclude any particular breed of dog; this approach is central to Debbie’s unique understanding of dog behavior that has turned underwriting this risk on its floppy ear.

The program initially began in 2012 available in a limited number of states. Today Canine Liability coverage is available in all states except Alaska. The policy has also been redesigned to offer much broader coverage with no deductible. You can request a quote by filling out an on-line application and emailing it to dturner@deaninsuranceai.com, or by completing the lead form on this page for more information.
