Anchor 1

Annarose was born
loving animals.

She started a dog-walking and pet-sitting business when she was just twelve years old. After researching many different career options in the animal field during high school, she was continually drawn to dog training. She was deeply intrigued and impressed by what dogs are capable of. She decided to dedicate her life to helping each dog live out its full potential.


She relocated to Missouri to attend one of the most prestigious dog training schools in the country, where she completed the intensive professional and master programs, graduating with honors in May 2016.


Annarose is certified in basic, advanced, and competition obedience as well as agility, scent detection and tracking. She is also qualified to train hunting dogs, therapy dogs, service dogs, and protection dogs.


Annarose continued to build her expertise by working as a member of the staff at The Tom Rose School, then at a boarding and training company in Illinois, and with a specialist in training hunting dogs in Missouri.

In January 2018 Annarose came back to New York and started Higher Purpose Canines.

Annarose is skilled at evaluating your dog's temperament, behaviors, breed traits, and their relationship with you and will tailor training to fit your needs.

Annarose is always advancing her knowledge of dogs and training and is passionate about helping people and their dogs pursue their higher purposes.


On a Personal Note...

Annarose is married to Caleb Wilson, a golf pro in the MET section, and they have four dogs: Inara, Drogo, Siren, and Kenna (from the left) and a cat, Iniku.
