Welcome to Active Dog Colorado

My name is Katie Dexter and I’m excited to bring the Active Dog business from Connecticut to Colorado. I started working for Active Dog in July of 2015 and have been working and hiking dogs almost every day since then.

Before Active Dog, I worked for two veterinary clinics and learned a lot about properly caring for dogs. Having grown up with dogs my whole life, I know how important it is for them to get the proper amount of exercise in order to live a balanced and healthy life.

Dogs are natural pack animals who love to travel, so when you take them out on the trails with a few of their canine pals, you know they are in their happy place.

My goal is to share that happiness with you and your pups here in Colorado and to help ease your mind about leaving your dog at home for the day. I’m excited to explore the numerous trails of Colorado with your dog and build a Colorado “active pack”!

If you’d like a quick peek at what we’re up to, take the Active Dog Welcome Tour

Sincerely,
Katie Dexter

What Our Clients Are Saying…

Katie took our Osi pup for his first hike yesterday — and we were absolutely thrilled with how everything turned out. We had been looking for a service that would keep our dog active but also socialize him a bit more. We stumbled upon Active Dog, which has totally exceeded our expectations. Our pup had the greatest time yesterday and I know he will be looking forward to his weekly hike with Katie and the rest of the pack!

Erica BeckOsi’s owner

Katie and Active Dogs CO are amazing. Would never board in a kennel again now that I know this exists. Icey had fun playing with friends all week and Katie sent photos and shared videos on FB that brought joy to me. Thank you Katie!!

Jeremy PriestIcey’s owner

Katie boarded our 4 month old pup last minute at a very reasonable price. She came back very happy and tired after lots of hiking and playing.

Nick JakubowskiCallie’s owner

I would trust Katie with any dog. She is experienced, enthusiastic, and professional. I am really excited that she is bringing Active Dog to Colorado! As an added perk, she is the only person I know who has successfully managed to get a group of dogs to pose for a picture. I would recommend Katie and Active Dog to anyone who wants to keep their dog fit and happy while away at work or on vacation! Thanks for always being great with the Sarokin family dogs, Katie!

Hannah SarokinMultiple Dog Owner

Katie has a way with dogs like I have never seen before! Her enthusiasm to spend her whole day outside is endless and she shares that with all of the fury loved ones she brings along on the adventure!

Taylor B AndersonDog Owner

Eric is not only very responsible, he treats the dogs as if they were his own. We have two labs, three kids under three, and full time jobs in NYC so thanks to Eric our dogs have a much better life with off leash walks 3+ times a week. Â Eric sends notes, takes pictures and offers suggestions for the dogs care based on what he sees. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
