Nate grew up surrounded by dogs and cherished every opportunity he had to spend time with his family’s dogs. He was raised in Chicago and went to college at Michigan Tech, where he received a B.S. in Mathematics. During his time in college, Nate worked as a math tutor and fell in love with teaching. After completing his degree, he moved back to Chicago and began to pursue his other passion–dogs! Nate worked passionately as a dog walker. He loved working with clients and their dogs. Then he realized he could combine his two passions as a dog trainer with Suburban K9!
Nate currently has three dogs: two pit bulls named Tundra and Cornbread and an Irish wolfhound named Ripley. He loves taking his dogs on adventures like hikes and trips to the park.
