Robyn was born and raised in Fairfield County, and has spent most of her time outdoors for as long as she can remember. She moved to Florida to attend Full Sail University to study Show Production.
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 Norwalk with her partner Jess, and in her spare time enjoys snowboarding, kayaking, and hiking with her rescue Pitbull, Marnie!
Important Questions for Robyn
Why should you trust me with your dog?
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.

Penny is training ✨for✨ situations instead of ✨in✨ them!
Training your dog can be counterintuitive sometimes. If your dog is exhibiting unwanted behaviors in certain situations, it makes sense to train in those situations. However, we want our dogs to be exposed to triggers in a way that ✨doesn’t✨ cause them to react, which often involves taking them out of the situation.
Penny can be reactive to other dogs on leash in her neighborhood. Today, we took her out of that environment and into a new one! This way, we were able to reinforce the behavior that we like, all while giving her the experience of seeing other dogs ✨without✨ reacting.
Great job, Penny! ❤️🐾 #dogtraining ... See MoreSee Less
