Pet Lover's Passion

Welcome to Pet Lover's Passion - Where Training is Fun!

We specialize in relationship-based pet training and make your success our priority!


"Where Training is Fun!"

Hi, my name is Heather! I believe there is much joy to be found in training animals, and some of my favorite things about it are when that light bulb goes off in an animal's head, and also when my clients realize their pet was capable of more than they'd imagined!

That does it for me! That right there is the passion that inspired me to create this business in 2011. It wasn't until 2015 that I came up with a name for it: Pet Lover's Passion, because pet lovers should follow their passion for training animals!

I started teaching my own dog tricks in 2007, which quickly turned into a career choice. I was an entrepreneur back in high school!

I would like to cordially invite you to join me in this passion! I hope you'll stick around and explore my website; who knows, we may just do business together!

"Heather is very knowledgeable and was great with helping us train our golden retriever. We have noticed a big change in his behavior from the time she first came to our last session.

About the Trainer

My name is Heather, and I believe that building a healthy relationship with animals is the first step to successful training. Using positive reinforcement methods is a great way to train and instill a life-long desire to please in your furry friend. Training should be fun and stress-free for both the pet and the owner, and that is what I strive to achieve in each personalized training session. Up-to-date on the newest techniques, I coach pet owners through the training process while demonstrating with their pet.


Dog Training that Actually Works

Are you tired of your dog’s bad behavior? Heather Smith, trainer and founder of Pet Lover’s Passion, has created The Good Dog, Happy Life Blueprint© which helps pet parents go from frustrated, exhausted, and at their wit's end to enjoying a peaceful, well-behaved dog so they can enjoy stress-free walks, a quiet home, and a dog who comes when called. ...Interested?

Why You Should Hire Pet Lover's Passion

Imagine living with a dog that steals things from counter tops and hides them. The dog’s favorite pass-time is chewing up a favorite pair of shoes that you forgot to put out of reach. If you don’t give her the attention that she demands, she’ll bark until she gets her way. If new furniture comes into the house, it is immediately peed on or chewed. Your friends come over to visit and they are jumped on and mouthed. Moreover, you would love to have a garden, but everything you plant is dug up by your dog. You don’t bother taking her for walks anymore, because you’re tired of being dragged along and hearing her bark at other dogs.

If you read this and thought "that's my dog", I want you to know that it doesn’t have to be this way. The sooner you take action, the better life will be for you and your dog.

I can show you ways to curb or maybe even eliminate these problem behaviors. My methods aim to treat the root of the problem, and not just the symptoms.
