​Partner Trainer

Annie is a trainer with ROC Animal Training and she is a Certified Puppy Start Right Instructor, Certified Family Dog Mediator and Certified Professional Dog Trainer.  Annie is our resident puppy expert and loves helping clients to set their puppies up for success. Annie’s interest in training started with her rescue dog Valkyrie. Seeing how her dog navigated the world prompted her to dive into the world of dog training and behavior through books, classes, and seminars. 

Annie has Zvezda, a standard poodle, and 2 cats- Beerus, a sphynx, and Nisaba, a domestic shorthair, all of which she enjoys training.

She loves competing with her dog in different dog sports. Her favorite aspect of dog training is how defining boundaries and teaching behaviors can allow dogs to communicate with us. She has a particular interest in how focus, calmness, and drive in dogs impacts their learning processes and finding ways to help improve weaker areas.

In the Dog Training Industry there are no regulations or governing bodies.

Jessi began her career in veterinary medicine in 2007.  She worked in several emergency medicine and day practice facilities. She graduated from Oklahoma State University - OKC in 2010, receiving her Associates Degree in Veterinary Technology. She is also a nationally and state licensed Registered Veterinary Technician. 

Working in the veterinary medical field piqued her interest in human and animal behavior. She saw how anxious and fearful some of the patients were and wanted to find a way to decrease that anxiety. She noticed that while everyone loves their dogs, unwanted behavior can make it hard to connect and form solid relationships between them. She began researching the topic and found that prevention can be the key to preventing unwanted behaviors. In 2011, she started teaching Puppy Pre-K and Basic Obedience classes. To further her education, Jessi attended the Karen Pryor Academy of Animal Training and Behavior and graduated as a Certified Training Partner in 2014. 

Jessi's passion is to encourage and strengthen the human-animal bond. She is a current member of the Society of Veterinary Behavior Technicians, Association of Pet Dog Trainers and International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. She is a Certified Family Dog Mediator, Canine Good Citizen Evaluator thru AKC and a Certified Trick Dog Instructor with Do More With Your Dog. She has a certificate of completion for the Master Course Aggression in Dogs by Michael Shikashio. Jessi continues to learn and grow her knowledge base by attending continuing education classes, seminars and conferences. 

Jessi is a busy mom of 3 kids. She knows how hard it can be to balance a household, work full time and train your dogs. Jessi enjoys competing with her dogs in Agility, Barn Hunt, Lure coursing, Dock diving, Antler Shed hunting and Trick Dog. She currently has three dogs, Colt, a Doberman and Chaos, an Australian Shepherd and Spryte a Heeler puppy.  When not training dogs, Jessi can be found anywhere outdoors with her family - husband Jordan, son Jackson, daughter Cheyenne, and stepdaughter Izzy. 

Why ROC Animal Training?

ROC stands for "Right On Click". Jessi loves clicker training and the fun that people and dogs have doing it together. Clicker training falls in line with her training philosophy - she wants training to be fun for both animal and human, yet effective in real life situations.

Jett Roc was Jessi's soul dog. He was with her from the start of her business and attended the Karen Pryor Training Academy with Jessi. Jett was always eager to learn and fearlessly push boundaries with Jessi. He is her shining example of how successes, mistakes and perseverance form a bond of trust and love between human and animal, which in turn produces a great trainer.  Jett Roc passed away in January 2021 at 10 years of age. He leaves behind an incredible legacy.
