Dog Training Guide by Nathan Schoemer in cooperation with Dog is Awesome
We from Dog is Awesome, had the opportunity to train with our first dog "Goofy" in California with Nathan Schoemer. We had seen many dog trainers until then, but he was the only one who could really help us.
"Goofy" is not a very simple dog, we do not know much about his past, because we saved him from the shelter when he was 1 year old. Nate Schoemer helped us a lot and that's why we want to give you his training tips and the guide on our page Dog is Awesome.
Thank you, Nathan Schoemer, for working with us in Europe.

NATE SCHOEMER'S DOG TRAINING
- Dog Training Made Simple
- Learn to train your dog like the pros!
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.
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.
