The Dog Liberator™

The Dog Liberator rescues abandoned dogs throughout the Southeast. Based in Central Florida, this non-profit organization fosters all of their dogs in a home environment. Founded in 2009, all dogs are fully vetted, spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The Dog Liberator focuses in rescuing the herding breed, which consists of Border Collies, Shepherds, Sheepdogs, Aussies, Collies, and Deaf/Blind Dogs.

If you have adopted from any rescue, shelter or pound, or if you purchased your dog from a breeder, and your dog is experiencing behavioral issues, please do not wait… call and ask for help immediately. If you don’t know of anyone, write a detailed email and ask for help by contacting a rescue group that specializes in your dog’s breed. Contact your local Pet Store and ask for recommended trainers, or contact your Vet. Do not wait until an unwanted behavior becomes a habit.

There are training videos on Youtube, and available on DVD that might solve your problem. There are books galore, one of my favorites is The Other End of the Leash.

Recently, Vicki shared with me her excitement over a book called Fired Up, Frantic, and Freaked Out, a fantastic book to help manage hyper dogs!  There are also thousands of training aids available, and many of them work!  As a matter of fact, there is a FREE Webinar “Fear of People” this month, that I have registered for!

TDL tries very hard to follow-up with all of our adopters. We have found that sometimes, adopters are embarrassed to ask for help. Don’t Be! Do not wait until you yourself are so discouraged that you are unwilling to try to help your dog overcome its issues. Again, I can’t stress enough that a dog’s  bad behavior needs to be corrected immediately, before your dog turns it into a habit.



We have gone through extreme measures in some cases, to rescue our dogs. They have traveled hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles, some of have been flown in, some have undergone extensive and expensive medical procedures. Please do not give up on your dog!

Realize that in some cases, it has taken us months to rehabilitate a dog, dogs like China, Shy Sharon, Shy Shannon, and more recently Shep, Les Paul and Mystery are all work in progress.

We may not have the answer, but we will dig until we can find a solution. Sometimes, for example, owners who have successfully housebroken their dog take their dog’s crate away. Don’t! You’ve taken away your dog’s Safe Place! There are many training tips we can offer that might help modify your dog’s behavior.

Also, if you have adopted a dog from us, and have not yet ordered your Free Training DVD, please simply email me at for details.


If you want to be the best for your dog, please read “let it go“.
