Allie grew up in Old Greenwich, CT, and currently lives in Stamford, CT. She graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a major in Communications and a minor in Human Development and Family Services.
She grew up riding horses and was around all sorts of animals from a young age. Her love for them has only grown over time! She has a 9-year-old Shih Tzu named Harper, who is her whole world.
Allie’s interests include traveling, cooking, and taking care of her plants. Dogs have always been Allie’s passion, and she can’t wait to meet yours!
Important Questions for Allie
Why should you trust me with your dog?
You should trust me with your dog because I will treat him/her as my own. I don’t consider dogs merely “pets” but members of the family and real companions. I know how special my own dog is to me, so to treat yours any different would be unfair!
What do you enjoy about working at Active Dog?
The best part about working at Active Dog is seeing the pure joy that these dogs show while on the hikes. I get to spend my day making their days, and I truly wouldn’t want it any other way. It’s so rewarding to end the day knowing how happy we’ve made these much deserving family members that do so much for us on a daily basis!
What did you do before you worked at Active Dog and why did you decide to work with dogs?
Before Active Dog, I was working in the service industry and had a few corporate temp jobs; nothing seemed right to me. Dogs have been a large part of my life forever, and more recently I have become very interested in learning about them more in depth. The more research I did, the more I realized that this is truly a passion and has been a passion for a long time!
Even though it took me a little bit to figure out what I wanted to do, I am extremely happy at where I ended up! I hope to continue to grow my knowledge of dogs and gain experience while spending time with your furry friends!

Penny is training ✨for✨ situations instead of ✨in✨ them!
Training your dog can be counterintuitive sometimes. If your dog is exhibiting unwanted behaviors in certain situations, it makes sense to train in those situations. However, we want our dogs to be exposed to triggers in a way that ✨doesn’t✨ cause them to react, which often involves taking them out of the situation.
Penny can be reactive to other dogs on leash in her neighborhood. Today, we took her out of that environment and into a new one! This way, we were able to reinforce the behavior that we like, all while giving her the experience of seeing other dogs ✨without✨ reacting.
Great job, Penny! ❤️🐾 #dogtraining ... See MoreSee Less
