Originally from Maine, Eric grew up in the great outdoors where he and his family always had dogs. Eric founded Active Dog in 2011 with his right hand dog, Tobias. Tobias was a 140 pound, Greater Swiss Mountain Dog who loved to hike! He was a gentle giant, an amazing companion and crossed the rainbow bridge at the age of 10.5, on Easter morning of this year.
Eric currently lives in Weston, Connecticut with his wife Tara, son Casen and their Golden Retriever, Cooper. Eric enjoys playing golf, skiing and performing with his modern-country band, Hazzard County. He has a graduate degree in Financial Risk Management from the University of Connecticut.
