Danielle was born and raised in Norwalk, CT and still resides there. She has always been around animals since a child, growing up she had many dogs and now has her own pup named Olive. Before attending Norwalk Community College for her Veterinary Assistant certification, she volunteered at local rescues as well as helping run her mother’s former senior dog rescue group. In her spare time, she enjoys taking Olive out wherever she can, watching movies, video games and arts and crafts.
Important Questions for Danielle
Why should you trust me with your dog?
I take my responsibility for other’s pets very seriously; I treat every dog as my own. I have years of experience with my own dogs, including dogs I’ve worked with in veterinary settings and kennel settings, as well as my own dog walking and sitting. I also have a soft spot for the old guys, taking special care of their needs.
What do you enjoy about working at Active Dog?
I’ve always loved animals since a young age thanks to my parents and when I started volunteering as a preteen, I loved it. I can’t dream of doing anything else. I get to be outside and I get to make new doggy friends every day!
What did you do before you worked at Active Dog and why did you decide to work with dogs?
I have been involved in volunteering with rescue groups since I was about 12 years old. I went to school to get my Veterinary Assistant certificate and have since worked at an emergency vet, as well as working at kennel/boarding facilities and have done lots of my own dog walking and dog sitting.

⭐️Dog of the Week⭐️ COOPER
Cooper has been hiking with AD for a little over a year now and how glad we are that he joined our pack! This beautiful bouncing boy is always ready to welcome the van with a ball 🎾 in his smiling mouth, and leads the pack on the trails (especially when it comes to finding mud puddles!) Rain or shine, Cooper is always ready for a romp and is one of the happiest pups around. Just look at that grin! 😁 Congratulations Cooper! 💛 ... See MoreSee Less
