Kat was born in Louisiana, and raised in Westchester, New York. Growing up, she had two German shepherds named Jake and Pete, and then a Jack Russell terrier named Annie. From early on, she started to ride horses and compete in horse shows. Her love of all animals had no bounds. When it came time for college, Kat was considering becoming a veterinarian, but ultimately chose a major of art & design.
Upon graduating from Marist College with a fashion degree, she wound up in Manhattan designing and illustrating activewear clothing, which was an unforgettable experience.
Now, back in Westchester, Kat loves to stay active at the gym, and play with her two favorite pups Mason and Oakley. To her, dogs aren’t merely animals—they are the best friends that anyone could have!
Important Questions for Kat
Why should you trust me with your dog?
You should trust me with your dog because I strive to understand each dog’s individual needs, characteristics, and quirks—all the great things that make your pooch unique. It is my personal goal to give your dog an experience that they will enjoy each time so that they will come back to your home feeling tired, happy, and most of all, loved!
What do you enjoy about working at Active Dog?
I enjoy working at Active Dog because it brings me so much happiness to see your dog enjoying the outdoors just as much as me each time we hike together. Knowing that I can add to their day while enjoying all that Mother Nature has to offer out on the trails is pure bliss for me!
What did you do before you worked at Active Dog and why did you decide to work with dogs?
Before I worked at Active Dog, I was an activewear designer in NYC. Even though I love art, designing, and fashion, I’ve always had a strong connection with animals of all sizes since I was a little girl. To be able to spend my day outside in the countryside with clean fresh air and with these fabulous creatures we call “Man’s Best Friend” is not just a job to me, it’s therapeutic!

⭐️Dog of the Week⭐️ WOODY
Woody has been hiking with AD over a year and half now The moment he sees the AD van out the window, a big smile spreads across his face. Out on the trails, you can find Woody partaking in an epic game of Chase, running laps around the pack, or hanging back and charming his way into an extra treat or two. In between bursts, he comes bouncing up to check in with his hikers, always wearing his signature smile that is equal parts adorable and mischievous-but most of all contagious. Woody is as sweet as they come, always leaning in for a quick ear scratch and ending every hike with a big hug at drop-off. We love having Woody in our AD family and look forward to many more years of fun on the trails. Congratulations Woody!!! 🤠 ... See MoreSee Less

We had a new member join our Active Dog Family today! Everyone please join me in Welcoming 💥Roscoe💥 to the pack! 🥳
Roscoe is a 3 year old Mixed Breed Rescue who is extremely smart and will do absolutely anything for a treat! 🦴 His favorite treats are cheese and carrots but he hates peanut butter! One of the cutest things he does is smile with his teeth when greeting his owners returning from work 😁 Roscoe can tear up a stuffed toy within minutes and he loves to jump on anything high (walls, rocks, pedestals) while he's out exploring the town! He’s happiest in nature smelling all the new scents and he hates technology; he'll bark when you get on your phone or are on the computer! Roscoe’s DNA test said he is mostly Chihuahua (34%)! 🧸😊 ⛰🐾
Roscoe fit right in to the AD life today and I am so excited to see his off leash experience and overall confidence grow out on the trails some more! Great job today buddy! ⭐️ ... See MoreSee Less
