Welcome to Active Dog

Welcome to Active Dog! Since 2011, we have been providing a number of pet services including dog hiking, walking, and boarding for clients living within Fairfield and Westchester Counties.

Daily group hikes are our most popular service. The 60-90 minute hikes include pick up and drop off from your home, exercise, socialization, supervision, and daily photos of your dog in action. Your pup will feel like he/she is going to Disney World every day!

We know how much you love your dogs and promise to treat them as if they were 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.

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!!

Calvin’s Owner

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!!

ValerieRoxy & Callie’s Owner

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!

Splash’s Owner

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!

Cooper’s Owner

Thanks Active Dog LLC! You guys are the best, exercising and overnighting our almost 13 yr old lady labradoodle, Blue! Appreciate all of you for patience and understanding the needs of a spoiled, conditioned older dog’s needs and teaching her some new tricks and adaptive behavior. Moving from California (year round abundant trails) to CT has been an adjustment, but Active Dog LLC staff has completely raised our quality of life and lowered our move induced anxiety! A good dog is a tired, well fed and exercised dog!

Blue’s Owner

Our high-energy, goofy, stubborn pup is our world! Her health, safety, and happiness is top priority, which is why we only trust Eric and the crew at Active Dog to care for her. We have been using Active Dog full-time for over 2 years now, for both daily hikes and overnights. It is clear that the team truly cares for and bonds with the dogs, and our puppy girl loves them all dearly. We recommend them unequivocally. Indeed, we wish they provided childcare, too!

Bogart’s 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.  Eric sends notes, takes pictures and offers suggestions for the dogs care based on what he sees.  I can’t recommend him highly enough.
