Canine Educational Expert
Nathan 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.
Nathan began using his extensive experience to help many canine professionals establish their own similar companies. Eventually, Nathan’s career culminated with the creation of Hira’s Legacy, a non-profit educational foundation to improve the lives of dogs and their owners.
Shortly after his return to LA, Nathan was cast by Animal Planet as the co-host of Rescue Dog to Super Dog; a 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 Cammies & Canines with a three-part mission of helping veterans, rescuing dogs, and training service dogs for the disabled. In doing so, Hira's Legacy merged with C&C.
In late 2018, Nathan took his operations in the dog world to the next level with the launch of On Season K9 Nutrition: his personal brand of raw, freeze-dried dog food. This product keeps in line with Nate’s philosophies and dedication to the field by providing a highly nutritious alternative to dog kibble.
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 two Malinois, Arih and Hero, and Labrador, Charlie.
Cammies & Canines is a non-profit organization that focuses on helping Veterans by providing sober living transitional housing, co-op community, emotional wellness, canine companionship, a chance to rediscover purpose and gain job skills to succeed as contributing citizens in our society.
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.
ON SEASON K9
BECAUSE THERE'S NEVER AN OFF SEASON FOR YOUR K9
Serve the best food for our dogs treating every dog we feed as our very own. The stronger the body, the stronger the mind! This statement holds true for both humans and our four-legged friends. To maintain a strong body, we must eat the healthiest foods. In the dog world, this means eating a RAW diet.
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.
