Canine Educational Expert
Nate Schoemer is an American dog training and canine educational expert and former United States Marine. He was certified as a Professional and Master Dog Trainer through the Tom Rose School, where he graduated at the top of his class in both the Professional and Master Dog Trainer programs where he was later invited to be an assistant instructor.
Nate began using his extensive experience to help many canine professionals establish their own similar companies. Eventually, Nate’s career culminated with the creation of Nate Schoemer’s Dog Training, with a mission of improving the lives of dogs and their owners through education.
In 2017, Nate’s dog training caught the attention of Animal Planet, and was cast as the co-host of Rescue Dog to Super Dog; the UK show that was formatted for American audiences. In the show, Nate transformed rescue dogs into service dogs to help the lives of people affected by disabilities.
More recently, Nate joined forces with the non-profit Operation Therapy Dog with a two-part mission of helping veterans and training service dogs for the disabled. He is the head of canine operations for Operation Therapy. He has designed their premier training program matching the ideal training techniques with the proper physical and mental developmental period of a dog’s life. His approach to training virtually eliminates the amount of time a dog ever has to spend in a kennel for the benefit of the dog, the trainer, and the veteran.
Lastly, Nate created a YouTube channel to help continue his mission of improving the lives of all dogs by educating those that care for them.
He prides himself on his self-motivation, honesty, integrity, enthusiasm, and determination to serve his clients and his community in all of his endeavors. He currently works on his entrepreneurial activities and lives with his Malinois, Arih, and Labrador, Charlie.
NATE SCHOEMER'S DOG TRAINING
Nate Schoemer provides an academy for dogs and their owners. The purpose of dog training is to enhance human/canine relationships and to help a dog to understand its expectations. Through training your canine, discover the dramatic difference of owning a well-trained, obedient dog. A trained dog listens and knows how to navigate our world in ways that other dogs don't.
Dogs, especially, are animals that are loyal to their owners; with a desire to please. As they are not capable of cognitive reasoning as is practiced by us bi-pedal mammals, we must instead use systems of conditioning, pattern-recognition, and positive habit forming to create our desired results. The result is a dog better capable of comprehending our thoughts and feelings.
THE ART OF DOG TRAINING
Dog training is an art form and it takes years to become an expert. However, through the essentials I’ve provided in this website, anybody can take their dog ownership to the next level right-away. Although you won’t master this field overnight, you can quickly develop at least the essential skills needed to fix the majority of issues that dog owners face. In addition, you’ll discover a greater relationship with your dog, as you now have the tools to address the bad behaviors that may have frustrated you or pushed you further away from your companion. I believe that improving the lives of dogs, along with their owners, is the most important thing. We’ll talk soon!
DOG TRAINING PHILOSOPHY
Instead of trying to address a dog’s problems just by fixing the symptoms (as many others do), my philosophy is focused instead on finding and correcting the root causes of a dog’s behavioral problems. This involves providing the dog a clear path to success from the ground up.
I believe in teaching the right communication channels, and the concept of turning off pressure—which reduces the dog’s stress-levels during the training and enhances the dog’s learning capabilities. This methodology ensures that a dog obtains superior skills in navigating our world; which also makes a dog’s bad behaviors become a thing of the past.
