Hello! I’m Mario, I’m 23 years old and I love animals! Of the 8 different species that I’ve loved and cared for, dogs are my favorite.
For two years I worked at Stamford Springdale animal hospital, boarding and bathing, until they closed. I’ve been looking to work with animals again ever since.
I’ve done plenty of dog sitting in the meantime. From small to some bigger than me, I have extensive knowledge and experience walking them. I’m very grateful for this opportunity at Active Dog! Dogs are an absolute gift that deserve to be treasured. Thank you for your interest!
Important Questions for Mario
Why should you trust me with your dog?
Prior to working in a Veterinarian Hospital, boarding, grooming and giving daily medicines to those who need, I’ve owned and loved more than 10 of my own!
Throughout my life, whether it was a family member’s dog, my dog or even just a friend’s, a connection has always grown between us. The beautiful bond that can be created through something as simple as walking is what I’m in it for. I’m looking forward to making a new friend with your pup too!
What do you enjoy about working at Active Dog?
Being outside is always great, making new canine friends, being able to help dogs in need and showing owners that theirs is as happy as can be!
What did you do before you worked at Active Dog and why did you decide to work with dogs?
From 16 to 18 years old I worked at Stamford Springdale Animal Hospital alongside Dr. Silverman before they closed. Since then I’ve valeted cars, made smoothies at Robeks, have done plenty of dog sitting for family and friends.
I am very happy I found Active Dog as they have helped reintroduce a beautiful part of my life again, dogs!

🐾 Say hi to Franny + Rosie! 🌹
These two sweet sisters joined the Monday crew out on a hike today and did so well! They love staying by each other’s side and playing tag—they’re inseparable!
Besides playing with one another, Rosie loved laying in the streams while Franny had her nose in almost every tree stump or rock crevice.
We’re so excited to have these gals come out with us. Welcome the pack! ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less

Please welcome 🐾Cricket and Mochi🐾 to the Active Dog Family! Cricket is a 10 year old female Australian Cattle Dog and Mochi is a 3 year old male Cockapoo! 🐕🦴
Cricket is a rescue and could quite possibly have the softest fur! She still gets a little nervous when meeting people but warms up so quickly and is an absolute sweetheart! She loves to catch balls, enjoy a nice round of zoomies and herd people as well! Cricket always makes sure her hooman Mom is protected and continues to show her just how much love and appreciation she has for her!
Mochi is more of a laid back guy! He loves all dogs and people just as much as he does to cuddle! You can find him laying in one of your softest blankets, on one of the beds or even right in your lap! When he’s not relaxing with his family you might hear him saying hello to the local wildlife! 🦌🐿🏔
Cricket and Mochi had an incredible first hike on the trails, I am excited to see their off leash and overall confidence grow! Great job today you two! 😁 ... See MoreSee Less
