MEET THE TEAM
CEO / FOUNDER
Good CitiZEN Dog’s founder and owner, Deborah Rosen, has raised dogs for more than 40 years. She first began training professionally in 2002. Shortly thereafter she founded her own firm - Good CitiZEN Dog Training. She is now not just training dogs and their humans, she is also training trainers and putting people into business using the business model that she created and refined over all these years.
Building on this success, Deborah took her innovative business model and incorporated her own proprietary ZEN methodology — emphasizing client education — and built a curriculum around it. "Dogs need jobs - and their owners need an understanding of how to put their dogs back to work in fun and painless ways. Our job is to help our clients build a cohesive bond with their four-legged family member that lasts a lifetime. We create "peaceful living with your dog."
In 2013, Deborah took her finely honed business model and created Good CitiZEN Dog — a franchise business that uses the training techniques, methodology and business acumen that she has perfected over the years. Franchises exist in Tacoma & Fife, Washington, Suncoast, Florida, and Boise, Idaho — with more on the way."Our hope is to have a Good CitiZEN Dog franchise in every major city in the United States.
