Colin grew up in Yonkers, NY, and spent most of his youth exploring hiking trails and woods in surrounding areas of Westchester with his two dogs, Kerry and Tucker. Colin studied communication at SUNY Westchester which led to a career in acting and education.
He spent several years working at the Wolf Conservation Center in South Salem, NY (where he now lives) which led him to learn about and understand, canine behaviors even more. Active Dog is the perfect combination of these past experiences into a fulfilling and rewarding career.
In Colin’s free time, he can be found working on music, writing, playing board games with friends, and, hiking for his own enjoyment!
Important Questions for Colin
Why should you trust me with your dog?
I take a lot of personal responsibility for any dog under my care and treat them as if they were my own. Every career in my past has been on a management level so treating every dog as an individual with their own needs is a priority of mine. Every dog is a family member to someone, and I take pride in giving them the best experience possible while keeping them safe and cared for.
What do you enjoy about working at Active Dog?
Not only is it an opportunity to get out every day and enjoy nature and wildlife, but seeing dogs’ enjoyment of a day well spent is all the satisfaction I need in the world. Seeing how dogs interact in a pack-like manner relative to their not-so-distant cousins, wolves, truly makes me appreciate how their minds work and the impact of the social bonds they form.
What did you do before you worked at Active Dog and why did you decide to work with dogs?
My previous career was as a General Manager at a music school and, while I do have a love for music, getting back outside every day and working with canines has a much more fulfilling impact.

⭐️Dog(s) of the Week⭐️ MABEL & PEARL
Mabel started hiking with AD about 2 years ago and her little sister Pearl joined a year later. They make the sweetest golden duo, and though they love their pack mates, they spend most of their hikes wrestling with each other! Mabel was a little apprehensive when her energetic little sister first came home, but it didn’t take long before the two became the best of friends! Mabel and Pearl are inseparable! They do have their differences though. Pearl is always first out the door when the AD van pulls up, whereas Mabel takes a moment to wake up from her nap before making her way to the door. Pearl likes to spend her van ride playing while Mabel prefers to relax right behind the driver seat. This is where the differences end though! These girls hike alike! While out on the trails Mabel and Pearl love to cover lots of ground! They don’t stop moving and only slow down to partake in a game of Tug of War, usually with each other, or play in a mud puddle. Though they love their blonde fur, they enjoy seeing what it’s like to be brunettes for the day. Mabel and Pearl are as fun as they are loving and we are so happy they are a part of our AD family! Congratulations Mabel and Pearl!!! 💛💛 ... See MoreSee Less
