group nature hikes?

Hello Stamford Moms!

Nature Hikes




Dog Walks

Welcome Stamford Moms Group!

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 hike is our most popular service by far. Over the past nine 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. 

I welcome you to click the button to get started, or call me directly to discuss your first hike with us…free of charge.  

We know how much you love your dogs and I promise you that our experienced staff will treat them as if they were our own.

You may be busy, but your dog isn’t.
Here’s how our nature hikes work…

While you’re at work, chances are your dog is home with nothing to do.
Our nature hikes are all about giving your beloved pet an opportunity to run, have fun, and socialize with their buddies. It’s completely safe and there’s nothing for you to do except sign them up!

Step 1


We come to you, even if you’re off at work (with permission of course)

Step 2

Supervised Setting

Experienced dog hikers ensure that every animal is safe, and stay with the pack

Step 3

Photos and Videos

We post photos and videos of every hike so you can see how much fun your dog is having (while you work!)

Step 4

Back Home Happy

We bring ’em back home to you happy, clean, and most importantly EXHAUSTED

What people are saying about Active Dog…

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!
