Force free training is teaching an animal without pain, intimidation, threats, force, or coercion.

Force free training encourages a stronger bond and relationship with your dog and helps dogs gain confidence by thinking for themselves and learning to make good choices on their own.

Our training classes provide information and education to the public to prevent dogs from living life on a chain, segregated to a pen, or being surrendered to the shelter by teaching owners how to teach their dog.

We would love to match you with a great rescue dog. Our goal is to get dogs off chains, out of pens and into responsible, loving, permanent homes.

We want to make sure you are the right match for our dog and that our dog is the right match for your family.

Because all dogs are different and sometimes the transition from foster home to forever home can cause setbacks, we’ve implemented a foster to adopt period for ALL of our dogs over 6 months old.

About Unchained Melodies Dog Rescue

Unchained Melodies Dog Rescue (UMDR) is a volunteer based, nonprofit organization dedicated to freeing the chained/penned dog, and bringing our 'best friend' into the home with the family as a companion pet.

Unchained Melodies Dog Rescue educates, legislates and rescues the chained/penned backyard dog and fights against animal abuse and cruelty. The goal of this organization is to advocate for the chained/penned backyard dog or any dog who has no voice and cannot help or protect themselves.

Unchained Melodies Dog Rescue educates owners and the community, and offers many free services to include vetting, training and re-homing of dogs and most importantly, raises awareness in the community regarding these issues.  This organization is also at the forefront of creating, strengthening and enforcing local ordinances and laws.
