Welcome to Active Dog

Welcome to Active Dog! We have been providing dog hiking, walking, and boarding services for clients living in Fairfield and Westchester counties since 2011.

The daily off-leash, group nature hikes is our most popular service by far. Over the past eight years we have hiked with over 250,000 dogs! Our 60-90 minute hikes include pick up and drop off from your home, exercise, socialization, supervision and daily photos or videos of your dog in action. Your pup will feel like (s)he is going to Disney World every day!

We know how much you love your dogs and promise our experienced staff will treat them as if they are our own!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How much fun will my dog have?

    A ton of fun! Most of our client’s dogs can’t wait to jump into the van after they’ve gotten a couple of hikes under their belt. Some dogs even wait by the door each day waiting to go!

  • How long has Active Dog LLC been doing off leash dog hiking, walking and boarding?

    Active Dog was brought to life in October, 2011 by Eric Bleile with the help of his right hand dog, Tobias.

  • How do you pick up my dog if I’m not at home?

    Most Active Dog clients provide us with one of the following: a hidden key location, an unlocked door or a garage code. Whatever you are most comfortable with.

  • What if my dog is aggressive with other dogs or people?

    We offer a dog training package that could help with this, but if your dog is aggressive with people or other dogs we cannot take them out on group hikes for liability reasons.

What people are saying…

Active Dog is by far the best dog walking service and value in the area. The owner and staff are friendly, professional, and extremely easy to work with. 

Our vet recommended that our dog get more exercise. Regular dog walking services are expensive for a short 15-20 minute walk. Active Dog takes the dogs on long hikes allowing the pups to run, play, and get the exercise they need. Our dog gets so excited on his hike days and comes home worn out!!

I highly recommend this company to anyone in the area!!

Eric & his team are the best!! They have changed our 3 dogs lives! They are so excited to go on their adventures!! Eric & his staff are fun, honest and reliable! I love all the posts they share!! Thank you Active Dog for taking such good care of my fur babies!!

Great service! They have taken my dog on many hikes! He is always happy and tired when he is returned home! They have been available last minute to pick up my dog for the times that I haven’t scheduled in advance. Highly recommend!

The very best people to leave your dog with when you go away! Cooper was waiting for us at home, fed and clean and very well exercised! It was so great to be able to see him every day in the photos. Eric and team, if I could give you a million star rating, I would!! Thank you!
