Dogs are a big part of peoples' lives, but sometimes they can be difficult to live with... Pet Lover's Passion can help you turn an unruly dog into the dog of your dreams!
Training services include behavior modification, problem solving, manners and obedience training, activity and trick training, puppy training, and help for fearful dogs.
Cats require as much care and attention as dogs, and special attention should be given to their training as well!
Giving our pets the best life that we can should be a priority, especially when it come to nutrition. Pet Lover's Passion can help you pick the best diet for your dog or cat.
Pet Massage is a wonderful way to bond with your dog or cat and goes hand-in-hand with diet and exercise for a healthy lifestyle.
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.
History of PLP
Pet Lover's Passion was a concept in 2011 and became a business in 2015! Since then, it has lived up to it's mission statement: "To enrich the lives of pets and improve the relationship between pets and their people." The clients I've helped over the years have brought me so much joy, and I hope to reach more people and animals in the coming years!

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.

Day Training is where the trainer comes to your home and trains your dog with you or for you (in your absence) for a portion of the day. Here is how the pricing works:
The first hour that the trainer comes in a day is full price, according to your hourly rate based on miles. The second hour and beyond, as long as the trainer hasn’t left, is 10% off of the hourly rate. All hours must be in succession in order for the discounted rate to apply. Rate resets once the trainer leaves that day.
Pay for a number of sessions up front so you don't have to worry about paying each session.
A package of 5 1-hour sessions saves you 3%
A package of 10 1-hour sessions saves you 4%
All package sessions must be used within 6 months, or they will be forfeited.
*Add a 3% fee for online/credit card payments. No additional fee for cash or check.

"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. His manners are much improved and he even learned some new tricks! I would recommend Heather to anyone who is trying to train their pet."
Trainer comment: It was great to work with such dedicated new puppy owners! Cheers to you: my very first clients! ~ Love, Heather ♥
"Very helpful at giving familiar ideas on what would work for their pet. Really connects with our dog and the dog looks forward to her coming. Definitely have made progress from sessions."

"Heather has helped us gain insight into how to relate to our two dogs, Gandalf and Pepper, and be more effective in training them."
Trainer comment: Thank you - it was always a joy working with you!
"My two newest cats were not getting along with my older female. When I heard about a cat trainer in my area, I had to reach out! Heather gave me tangible methods of easing the tension between the cats and now my older cat feels more peace around the newcomers. I would highly recommend her services."
Trainer comment: Thank you, I'm glad I could help!
"Heather has been a great trainer, and our dog has come so far with her guidance. We highly recommend her to anyone!"
Trainer comment: I am so happy to work with such dedicated pet parents! Peanut has come so far in overcoming his fears! Keep going!
"I was beside myself of what to do. I never had to deal with the behaviors my new puppy displayed, so I called Heather. I employed the methods she taught me, and by her third visit, the bad behaviors were a distant memory. Thank you Heather!"
Trainer comment: You are so welcome!
"Wow! What an affordable price!"
Trainer comment: Thank you! I try to keep training affordable so everyone can experience the joys of training!
