LAST CHANCE ANIMAL RESCUE/LAST CHANCE HUMANE
There are two kinds of people in this world, those who talk about doing and those
that do. Allie and Adele Lee are definitely those who do. While working with a
different rescue organization, I came across a five-year old, untrained, very
aggressive male American Bull Dog. I stumbled across Greenbelt Dog Training and
received help immediately before I could plan on someone adopting him. After
watching Allie in the classes and listening to him speak, and even during the
many phone calls to check up on us, our dog improved.
Our dog finally began to adjust to his new life style and graduated at the top
of our class with the highest score on the test, a 97%. Thanks to Allie and
Adele of Greenbelt Dog Training.

My 8 month old boxer puppy completed Basic Obedience Class with Greenbelt Dog
Training. I was very impressed with Allie Lee's training methods. He uses
positive training techniques such as a gentle correction, kind voice and soft
touch. Allie took time to answer all of my questions and to help me work
through behavioral problems with my puppy. In fact, he paid attention to each
dog's and each handler's specific training needs. He clearly enjoys what he does
and demonstrates, both verbally and physically, how to approach different
The difference in our dog's (and our own) behavior from the first class to the
last was remarkable. I highly recommend Allie Lee and Greenbelt Dog training.
Note: The President of PG SPCA and many of our volunteers that foster dogs for
adoption have been training with Allie Lee.

ROXIE’S FUND, Inc.
Our Animal Rescue Organization is based out of Silver Spring/Rockville MD. We
help many abused and homeless animals, with our rescue network;
program. In a nut-shell, we take in many dogs from local shelters including
MONTGOMERY COUNTY HUMANE SOCIETY in Rockville MD, bring them into our rescue
program, take care of their emotional, physical and veterinary needs and place
these dogs into our foster program; where they await their
In our adoption contract, when these once homeless dogs are adopted into a
"forever" home, it is mandatory that the new families take their new
family member into a basic dog obedience training class. Many times these dogs
just simply need basic training skills, many have been under socialized, and
some need to start from ground zero.
We work closely with training facilities that understand the special needs of
rescue dogs to make them great companions. Roxie's Fund has
developed a great working relationship with Greenbelt Dog Training, and we
refer many, many of our adopters to the Greenbelt Dog Training classes. And,
we also follow up on our mandate of obedience training to make sure the new
family is in compliance with the adoption contract.
Since we are based in the MONTGOMERY COUNTY, SILVER SPRING, ROCKVILLE area, many of
our adopters are also located in this mainstream area as well. A great
training venue for these doggie families to attend is greatly needed in our area,
and Greenbelt Dog Training comes with great recommendations and has been doing
training for 30 years plus.
Any consideration given to this organization in being allowed a venue to
expand its training classes is much needed and would benefit the community as
a whole. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

If you are going to have a large dog, you should have a large, well-trained
dog. Every dog owner should take his or her dog to obedience school, and I can
think of no one better to help you train your dog than Greenbelt Dog Training.

We enjoyed the Intermediate/Advance students of GREENBELT DOG TRAINING who
performed a Flyball Demonstration at our Annual Fund Raiser on May 3, 2003 in
The trained dogs were very well trained and the owners focused on gentleness in
the handling of their dogs and positive re-enforcement was used throughout the
demo. Their performance greatly added to the successful event.
We will be contacting Mr. Lee at Greenbelt Dog Training again to volunteer to
participate in our upcoming fundraisers in the very near future.
