When People Talk, We Listen

“Active Dog and Alicia have been lifesavers for us! My two energetic dogs (Churro and Moose) have the best time burning their energy and playing with friends, while packleader, Alicia, leads them around the trails. I trust she is keeping a watchful eye on them and encouraging good behavior while they are out. I enjoy watching short videos of their hikes and Alicia goes above and beyond to send me special messages when she notices something to report about my dogs. I feel grateful to have someone I can trust helping me keep my dogs active and healthy when I need help during my busy day. Alicia is the BEST!”

“I have been nothing been impressed with Eric and his team. They are professional and accommodating with me and loving and fun with Auggie. What more could you ask for?

Auggie literally waits by the door every Thursday in anticipation of his weekly hike. Clearly his favorite day of the week! He comes home happy, tired (in a good way) and calm.

Auggie tends to hike the most with Alicia. She radiates positivity and joy and is a pleasure to work with. Auggie and I will miss her very much when she moves to Colorado but we wish her the best on her new role at Active Dog out West. “

A year and a half ago when i adopted my puppy, my vet recommended me to Active Dog. From day one Theo and I were impressed with the services they have to offer and the amazing staff. Theo has been walked by a few of the walkers, but his favorite, and mine has to be Alicia. She gives Theo the right amount of attention he needs. She is always capturing great pictures and videos of all the pups and is always a call or text away if needed! I would recommend anyone i know to use her for your dogs needs.”

We have been Active Dog clients for almost a year, and we couldn’t be happier. Our lab, which is nearly two years old, now waits to be picked up every morning by a member of Active Dogs. He is cared for and loves his hiker, Alicia, especially!

Alicia is excellent with Bo, and there is a deep connection between the two!  Alicia is like no other and truly cares for the dogs like they are her own. She often sends me pictures of Bo, and it gives me peace of mind that he’s in such great hands.

I highly recommend Active Dogs for their services.

Alicia Andrianus has been of utmost value to my family along with Angus and Sophie our two beloved dogs. As soon as Alicia came into our lives she was an obvious jewel. At that time, we only had one dog, Angus. Angus, literally fell in love with her. When she arrives at our house to take him hiking he is always beside himself with joy. The great thing is that she’s just as excited to see him. Sophie is a new addition to our family, and it’s exactly the same with her arrival.

Beyond the fact that our dogs adore Alicia—she has been of great service to us as I travel frequently. She easily amends our schedule as needed. Alicia is beyond trustworthy, dependable and clearly a very intelligent and educated young woman that anyone can trust.

Quite honestly, I’ve often thought she is the type of employee I’m always looking for within my organization.

If you’re considering a hiking service for your dogs—do not even hesitate!

Alicia was one of the first people we met at ActiveDog and our whole family will all be heartbroken when she leaves for Colorado! We have a gentle-giant of a black lab named Raven, and Alicia is one of his favorite people in this world. He has been taking hikes with her many times a week since he was six months old. I feel 100% completely confident for his safety when he is with Alicia, and know that he will be taken care of as if he is with us… she clearly loves and watches over these dogs as if they are her own. She leads large groups of dogs and has total control over the pack.

Alicia also take care of the clients; she is professional, punctual and attentive. Whenever I have had any question she has responded thoroughly and in a very timely manner, and she always keeps her clients informed of what they need to know.

I think that Alicia represents exactly what ActiveDog was meant to be when created … she leads a group of hard-working people that will love and care for your dog when you are not able to, or when you know that they will have better exercise, extra play and more fun than sitting at home or in a kennel. If I were to ever have to choose one individual outside of my family to take care of Raven, I would choose Alicia. That should be indication enough of how I feel about what she has done for our family through ActiveDog!

“I have been with Active Dog for a vey long time and I love them!!  Active Dog hikes more than 100 dogs a day!! That says it all, because that can only happen if you are very good at what you do. The walks are great!! The dogs get to run off leash, they get the exercise and playtime they need. Eric and Alicia are active, trustworthy, reliable and very flexible. I never have to worry when my dogs are with her. Jillz, Harvey and Charlie love her!

I recommend Active Dog for anyone in search of a trustworthy hiking service.”

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!

My schedule changes constantly, and Eric has always been incredibly flexible week to week with my dog walking needs. He is incredibly reliable, polite, and responsive. I always feel my dog, Beckett, is safe, well managed, and having fun when he is with Eric. Unlike most dog walkers, Eric takes the dogs for off leash hikes and swims so I know Beckett is well exercised and stimulated. Eric always goes above and beyond- welcoming Beckett in his home for overnights or providing daycare for a full 12 hour period when I have a long day away from home. When we needed last minute care one weekend, Eric even took Beckett on a weekend getaway to New Hampshire where they hiked Mt. Washington together. I now need a bumper sticker that says “My dog hiked Mt. Washington.”

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.

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!!

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.

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!

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!
