  • In 1985, Robert Thompson of Governor Insurance was approached by Jeff Reynolds of the NDGAA (National Dog Groomers Association of America) to create specific insurance coverage for their Members. Out of this meeting, Bob designed the Professional Liability and Animal Bailee coverage forms that were tailored to meet the specific needs of the Pet Service Industry.

  • In 1998, Bob Thompson designed additional specific coverage for the expanding Mobile Grooming Industry. Along with the Professional Liability and Animal Coverage, Bob created coverage forms to provide for the Loss of Income and to insure the customized portion should your van or trailer be damaged or destroyed.
