Robyn was born and raised in Fairfield County, and has spent most of her time outdoors for as long as she can remember. She briefly moved to Florida to attend Full Sail University to study Show Production, and in 2020, Robyn went on to win a daytime Emmy for her work as “Engineer in Charge” on The People’s Court.
Following an 8-year career in Television Broadcast and time spent in Australia, Robyn found herself missing her outdoorsy roots and happily made the transition into the Active Dog family.
Robyn now lives in Trumbull, CT with her partner Jess, and in her spare time helps run a non-profit theater company, Rising Stars Performing Arts, based in Norwalk, CT. She also enjoys snowboarding, kayaking, and hiking with her rescue pitbull mix, Marnie!
Important Questions for Robyn
Why should you trust me with your dog?
I am Barkleigh Pet Professional First Aid and CPR certified. I have been an animal lover my entire life. Since I was young, all I ever wanted was something to take care of. I started with lots of guinea pigs, lots of fish, and cats until eventually, I was able to have a dog of my own. I’m not ashamed to say that I am 100% that dog mom who treats her dog like human family, and I will always treat your dogs the same!
What do you enjoy about working at Active Dog?
Besides the constant exposure to everything mother nature has to offer, I really enjoy the ability to meet and bond with new dogs every day, while being able to create a mutually respectful relationship with our more regular dogs and their humans.
What did you do before you worked at Active Dog and why did you decide to work with dogs?
I spent almost 9 years working in the live broadcast television industry. I loved what I did, but it lacked the consistency of getting outdoors and building the relationships that I needed. In an industry that is always go go go, I barely had time to spend with my own dog, and I knew in my heart that had to change.

⭐️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
