About Reggie & Richard

My husband and I are retired and are home whenever we have Guest Doggies. We've both had dogs since we were kids so for us, this is a “Labor of Love”.

Our "Doggie Host" is "Leo". He is a 10 year Golden Retriever that is still as playful as when he was a puppy!

The doggies are welcome in our home and can sleep wherever they like. We have a large, securely enclosed,.grassy backyard where they can safely roam and play.

This ensures that your pooch gets the attention and TLC they individually want and need, plus always knowing where they are at all times.

Days and nights at our home are filled with hugs, ball chasing, playfulness, and lots of petting, making sure that your pooch knows they are cared for and cared about.

It’s important that we know your pets' routines so that they will feel safe and comfortable whenever they are in our care.

Available services include:
~ Sleepover (boarding) visits
~ Daycare visits
~ Pick Up & Drop Off
~ Transportation to Veterinarian
~ Special Needs Dogs
~ One-on-One Private Walks
~ Oral medications dispensed
~ 24/7 Supervision
~ Extended stays

Please contact us for a thorough conversation regarding all of your pet’s needs and to set up a Meet-and-Greet.

As always Reggie and Richard were awesome!!
I am very very happy with Reggie and Richard! Very nice and caring people. My dog was very happy and loves to stay with this amassing family.
Reggie and Richard are awesome! They are so caring with all the pets. My dog loves it at their place. Woodstock has stayed with Reggie and Richard in the past and will stay again in the future. Thanks to them, I can go on vacation and never worry about whether my dog is ok. And they send pictures every day.

A perfect retreat for Kidd, as always. He loves his friends of all shapes and sizes at Leo's house! Thanks again R&R!
Jack has been going there every time we go away.
Reggie & Richard are wonderful people & wonderful caretakers. Jack absolutely loves them. Their place is very secure (double gates at each back yard entrance, name tags placed with their phone number etc.) - They are very responsible. Additionally they send an email with photos showing you how happy your dog is - we looked forward to them on a daily basis. We will see if they are available first every time we are planning a trip.

Another great stay for Layla. She loves it at the Bliss home. I appreciate the updates and pictures throughout her stay.
Einstein and Wally had a great time with Reggie & Richard. Big boy Leo lets Wally win on fetch. Donna & Geoff
Let's put it this way...before I make any reservations for me, I make sure Reggie and Richard have room for my dog Beary! Bear always has a great time here and I love the pictures they send me!!!
Olive's first overnight stay and all was good! She felt right at home at Reggie & Richard's, and had a great time playing with all the other pups. I'm sure Ben let her know this is the place to be!
Reggie and Richard are the best Dog Godparents ever... my Charlie (my Chocolate Lab) was is heaven with these great hosts! Thanks for the pictures! Harry & Susan
Reggie and Richard and their Blissful Doggie Retreat are absolutely wonderful! Our 1.5 year old dog Fyo LOVES spending time there with their sweet dog Leo and all the well-vetted doggies they accept. Fyo loves dogs but can feel anxious and stressed when the environment is not safe. His body language showed that he instantly felt comfortable and safe, and knew that the Blissful Doggie Retreat was a good place for him!

Reggie and Richard are warm, generous, and truly care about the well-being of their canine guests. They are also wonderful to the humans! They send pictures everyday, and respond to any queries immediately, which is a huge relief and assurance that your dog is being cared for. They even let me spend 30 minutes there the first time I dropped Fyo off for a lengthy overnight stay, just to watch him interact with the environment and other dogs. I couldn't have left feeling more comfortable and confident that he would be happy, healthy, and safe.

We are enormously grateful to have found Reggie and Richard, and highly recommend them to anyone with non-aggressive pups!

It was great having Richard and Reggie take care of our 3 furry family members while we were gone on vacation. They are true dog lovers and treated our furry kids like their own. Richard sent us lovely picture everyday, which brightened our day and gave us peace of mind while on vacation. We are very glad and grateful to have found such fun and loving place to board our furry kids when needed. Reggie and Richard place is more than just boarding, it's a place where your pets get the love and human companionship they so need when their parents are away ☺️

Reggie & Richard are the consummate doggy hosts! They work together as a team to provide the best circumstances for introducing new pups and having them play well together throughout their stay. They provide everything a pup could want or need - plenty of love, close supervision, plenty of room to run and play. Ben loves staying there and playing with the other doggy guests. I know he is happy there because whenever we go back, he can't wait to go in and see everyone! It gives us such peace of mind to be able to leave him and know he is in good and loving hands!

Charger loves going to Reggie and Richard's house to play with Leo and the other dogs. Reggie and Richard are amazing with the dogs and I would highly recommend them. They have a great yard for the dogs to run around and play. I feel very comfortable leaving Charger with Reggie and Richard. We always look forward to our daily pictures from them showing us how much fun Charger is having. Why leave your dog at a kennel when he can stay at a "5 paw resort"?

Wow! I wish I had discovered Reggie and Richard long ago. They're professional and skilled with dogs of all sizes, and they offer an environment that has the look and feel of a dog vacation. Not to mention that they send you regular updates when you leave your dogs with them! I was able to relax during my weekend away knowing that they were in great hands. I'll definitely be coming back.
Read More...
Quite simply, the BEST! My big boy is always happy to stay with Reggie & Richard, who both love him very much and it's mutual. Definitely Kidd's best home away from home!
Our dog, Layla, loves being with the Bliss family. They are wonderful with her and I appreciate the pictures they send during her stay.
They are so sweet and welcoming. It's a great setup and they pay attention to details. My dog had a blast! Thanks, guys.
This was Oliver and Gracie's first doggie vacation with Reggie, Richard and Leo and they loved it. Reggie & Richard provided daily updates/pictures and let us know how our pups were interacting with the other doggie guests. We felt completely comfortable leaving our dogs with Reggie, Richard and Leo and we knew they were well taken care of. Definitely a great home away from home!

Sam just stayed with Reggie & Richard for the second time. The experience was great. I highly recommend them. They took such good care of my dog. It was great to be able to go away and know that Sam was in great hands.
Awesome as always! It's very apparent how relaxed and at home our little girl is when staying with Reggie, Richard & Leo.
This was my pup's third visit and it was an overall great experience! They are so accommodating to a flexible schedule (pick-up/drop off etc.) which makes traveling so much easier. They provided daily update/pictures on the activities my pup was doing, how he was interacting with the other dogs etc. As with earlier visits. I felt 100% comfortable leaving my most precious pup with Reggie and Richard and knew he was being well taken care of. Thank you R&R for another great dog vacay!

Reggie and Richard are the best! Hank loves staying with them. When he sees Reggie, he gets so excited and knows that Leo is in the back yard and that he is with his second family. They really take an interest in their canine guests and I never worry when Hank is with them.

I feel so lucky to have been referred to Reggie and Richard for DogVaccay! My precious pup has some 'quirks' and is not always the easiest pup to get to know/take care of. Reggie and Richard were BEYOND understanding, patient, calm and accomodating of his personality. They sent me constant updates and pictures (it was his first visit/overnight stay so I was a bit more nervous) and let me know exactly how he was doing, what dogs he was playing with etc. They are wonderful people who truly open their home to these pups and treat them like their own. They were responsive to my questions, friendly on every level and overall provided a great and safe home for my dog. I could not be more pleased!

Lovely hosts. I think our little guy was very happy and entertained. Thank you. Cookie Berman
You can't ask for better hosts than Reggie and Richard. I love leaving Tinkerbell there because I know she is more likely to have a better vacation than my husband and I. My only concern is that she may not want to go back home when we pick her up. She has been sleeping since we got home yesterday and today I think she misses everyone at their home. I look forward to reserving with them and hope they are around for a long long time hosting our four legged children.

Emery just comes out of her shell when she stays with Reggie and Richard. It is really a magical place with hosts that bring out the very best in your dog. They have that special something you can't find just anywhere. I don't know what we would do without them!
Read More...
Reggie and Richard are the best hosts a doggie could ever hope for. Woodstock has stayed with them on multiple occasions and he is well treated and loves playing with the pups here. Since the first day I met Reggie and Richard I knew my dog would be well cared for. There is nothing but love for dogs at this house and you can feel it when you walk into their home. Additionally, Reggie and Richard are accommodating and flexible in my hectic scheduling. I would recommend them to anyone who has concerns about leaving their dog. Your dog is in good hands with Reggie and Richard:)

Love, love, love them! They're welcoming, warm and kind people and we have complete trust in them when we have to leave our four legged member of the family. When he sees them, he dashes out of the car to say hello...It's camp for him and we can leave without any worry.

I am more than pleased and plan to always send Tinkerbell to her "other home" while we are away in May and every time we have to leave Tinkerbell. The love they give our pet is more than one could expect.

Reggie and Richard give the best care and attention to Tinkerbell''s at their home. We arrived for her second stay and she ran into their home without even saying goodbye. You can't ask for a better assurance that she is happy with them. Can't wait to take her there in May. My husband and I upon receiving their photos of Tinkerbell at play and at rest always leads to the question "Will she want to come home with us?"
Thank you Richard and Reggie. You add so much joy to our vacation because you care so much for our pet.

i felt at ease leaving my dogs, and was especially happy receiving pics. Also when i picked up my dogs that night, they were still exhausted the next day, My dogs are very active, so i was quite pleased. I got to rest up a bit that day, plus they get to socialize with other dogs. I am very happy

I am so blessed to have a safe and loving place to leave my baby! All three Bliss': Reggie, Richard & Leo are loving and kind I have now signed up Luna dor weekly day care too
Our dog always has a great time with Reggie, Richard, and Leo. And this time was no different. She gets excited when I tell her she gets to play with Leo.
I always miss my baby so much, but I know by the love they show her when I drop her off, she is happy and safe

They send me pictures of her everyday she is with them and Leo, Luna's BFF

I am so pleased with the care they exhibit to my Luna, that I am going to start leaving her there one day a week for daycare!

We love the Bliss family! While I miss Brandi when we are apart, I don't worry. Brandi is such a content little girl while on vacay with Reggie, Richard & Leo. They are diligent with caring for her and treat Brandi like their own~ definitely a home away from home!

Prior to leaving our 16 month old Golden Retriever we brought him over to Reggie & Richard's for a "meet & greet" session. We knew right away that Jack would be in great hands. The Bliss' are very likeable & responsible hosts who obviously love dogs. Their house is well set-up to host your dog & their care is top notch. We also liked the fact that we received a daily photo & email update which comforted us a lot. We would not hesitate to leave our dog there again & the only way we would look for anywhere else is if our desired dates are unavailable. We were very happy knowing that Jack was well cared for
Read More...
Once again, we let Tinkerbell stat with them and I am even more pleased. Thank you for leading us to this wonderful family and their perfect home. My only concern was whether my dog Tinkerbell would want to come home.
As soon as I met Reggie and Richard, I knew Layla would be in good hands. They are caring and are good about emailing updates and pictures. We will drop off Layla there again when needed.
Sam appears to have had a great time at Reggie and Richard's house! We were relieved to have a warm, caring, safe environment where we could leave him while we were away. I highly recommend Reggie & Richard's Blissful Doggie Retreat!
Lulu was very happy to be with Reggie and Richard for the second time.
Reggie and Richard are charming and caring people. Their home is lovely and our Lulu was very happy there. She will be back there soon.
Reggie and Richard continue to amaze us with their love and meticulous care of our dogs. Emory had a wonderful time, she had such a good time playing with the dogs. It is such a wholesome atmosphere for the dogs. We would not leave Emory any place else, ever.

A great experience......our dogs seemed to do very well in this new situation with lots of new friends.....thank you!
I have used Reggie & Richard (& Leo) Bliss twice now, and I am so relieved to have a place that is safe and nururing for her. I highly recommend all three Bliss's
Oreo came back very happy and ofcourse since coco was a pup she had a bit of trouble adjusting. Would use them again with Oreo if I needed it again! thanks:)! Coco isy moms pup...
Reggie and Richard and very caring and trusting. It was the first time we have used the service and left our dog with "strangers" but they did not feel like strangers. They are kind and thoughtful sending a worried dog mother pictures of her furry child the entire time. Their dog Leo is a wonderful, sweet doggy host and all three of them made their home, Ruger's home. I highly recommend Blissful Doggy Retreat!
Read More...
Our dog really enjoys his stay with the Blisses. They are like family to him. Leo is like his big brother. He goes there eagerly with a wagging tail which speaks volumes.
Reggie and Richard are amazing dog hosts. Our dog (8 month old puppy) had the best time with Reggie and Richard. I felt comfortable with her being there with daily email and picture updates. They are friendly and warm and will provide your pup with love and play time. Our dog was able to sleep on their couch or wherever she felt the most comfortable. I know she was spoiled and thats what I appreciate about their home. I would highly recommend Reggie & Richard (& their own dog, Leo) to watch your dog for any length of time.

Reggie,Richard and Leo are great hosts. Our dog Charlie gets so excited when we take him there. He stay for a week and had a great time and made lots of new friends. Knowing our puppy is happy there is wonderful. Thanks Blisses
We could not have chosen a better place for our dog to stay. It is apparent by their attention and enthusiasm that Reggie and Richard truly love dogs and enjoy what they do. We enjoyed the daily photos and notes and felt assured that our dog was being so well cared for. Thanks Reggie and Richard!

Goose the Golden Retriever had a charming experience at the Bliss house. He came home relaxed and happy with loads of dog friend stories to relate . Thank you Reggie and Richard
Hope this says it all : My dogs have found a new second home ! Kim, Woodland Hills
Our 5 month old energetic puppy had a lot of fun with the Blisses and their guest dogs. They sent pictures and updates everyday which provided us with a lot of comfort. Reggie ,Richard and Leo are great hosts and we felt very comfortable leaving our baby with them. Very trustworthy and attentive!

We can't thank Reggie & Richard enough for their generous hospitality and care for our two boys. They are both lovely dogs, but a bit suspicious of people they don't know and very nervous when they're not around mom or dad.

Reggie & Richard went above and beyond, not only communicating with us daily (often more than daily) about our boys progress, they were sensitive to their fear and in short order made them both members of their household and treated them with as much love and care as we would have.

Thanks, again, Reggie & Richard. We'll all be seeing you again before our next big trip!

Reggie and Richard are the most professional and caring hosts you will ever find for your dog(s). They are the best of the best. Blissful Doggie Retreat is the ONLY place my dog(s) will ever stay. I feel my dogs have a real vacation when they go to Reggie and Richard's.

This was Brandi's third vacation with Reggie, Richard & Leo and again, we couldn't be happier with the care Brandi received. Brandi is 14 and herniated her disc before we left. It was really important that Brandi didn't run around with the other doggie guests (which she loves to do) ~ Reggie and Richard (even Leo!) kept Brandi content without risking re-injury. I received daily pictures and reports~ as always, Brandi looked right at home with the Bliss family which just added to the enjoyment of our trip!

They were perfect for Lucy. She is shy and has not done well with kenneling in the past. She also does not have much interaction with other dogs on a daily basis. When we went for the meet n greet, Lucy ran and played right away, and then went right for Richard for petting and loves.

I could tell from the daily photos and updates that our Lucy was having her own special vacation!
Our only concern was that she would not want to leave!

We could not be more pleased..Richard, Reggie, and of course Leo made our vacation even better.

Reggie and Richard are great! They treat Sadie like she is part of the family. When I drop her off, I know she is loved and taken care of. When I went on DoggieVacay; I didn 't know how the process worked. The first time I used the website and found Richard and Reggie was one of the greatest days of my life. They make there home Sadie's home and for that I am grateful. Reggie and Richard are the BEST sitters EVER. Not only do they take care of your dog; but they generally love them. They are GREAT! I consider then part of my family:)

Reggie, Richard, Leo are the best hosts we have ever had for Bear. It is her home away from home. Our dog loves it when we go on vacation so she can stay at the Bliss house! Patt Sendejas
This was Migo's second stay. He loved it and I had peace knowing he was in the best of care with lots of love. Richard and Reggie are the most loving dog people.
Everything was perfect. Reggie & Richard are now like my dog's grandparents that he never had. They made sure he was exercised enough, which is saying something for a high energy pointer. Great communication and I always felt confident that they could handle anything unusual that might pop up. I wouldn't hesitate to leave him with them again.
Read More...
I couldn't be happier with the great care Reggie and Richard gave my dogs. I was very comfortable with leaving my dogs there. One of my dogs has cancer so I worry about any stress he would be under. They both seemed content when I picked them up. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone!
Read More...
A wonderful stay every time! Feels so great to NEVER have to worry when we are away from our Maisy. We know that she is in great hands with Reggie & Richard.
Hank loves coming to his 2nd home.
Our dog Orson LOVES going to Reggie, Richard and Leo's home. My husband and I went on a two week trip, and there was no other place Orson would have had a better time. I am so glad we have found a place where they take excellent care of our baby boy.
Hank loves staying with Reggie and Richard....its his second home.
Whether its a day camp visit or an overnight stay the Bliss house is the place that feels best to our dog. We love to see how happy our dog is when she stays with Richard, Reggie and their dog Leo.

Our dog Bear enjoys staying at their home so much she gets excited when we arrive a block away from their home. She knows whats best for her and where the love is. Can't fool a dog they know when they are loved. Thank you Reggie and Richard for your loving care for Bear.
Read More...
There are now words to express our gratitude to Reggie and Richard. They even agreed to take on our special needs dog, Charlie, who has some emotional issues. He did so well with them, and I know he enjoyed being in a home environment instead of a kennel. Reggie and Richard knew how to handle him and I cannot thank them enough. Jill is easier, though not a good eater. Reggie hand fed him for every meal she didn't want to eat. Now who do you know would do that for your dog??? They are special, special people who I will always trust to care for my greyhounds.

Our dog loves going to the Bliss home so much that she get excited when driving to their home. She has so much fun playing with the host dog and guest dogs that she need to rest up for a couple of days after her visit.

I feel very comfortable leaving our dog with Reggie and Richard Bliss. They are both such loving dog people!

My dog Bear knows they love her!
Read More...
From the dog interview to the end of our reservation time, I felt very lucky that our dog
"Hank" was able to be a part of Reggie and Richard's family. This was as close as I think you can get to having your dog "at home" when you can't be with them.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Read More...
As always, I returned home to a happy, healthy dog who received lots of love from his "second family." Thanks Reggie & Richard!
Migo had an amazing time with Reggie, Richard and Leo (their fabulous golden retriever). I was almost jealous, because when Migo came home to ME, he seemed homesick for THEM.

But I had to put the jealousy aside. When it comes to finding a home away from home for Migo, it's supposed to be all about him, right? Right.

He spent the weekend with the Bliss family and two other terriers. He got to go on walks every day, he learned how to use a doggie door, he got to play LOTS and he learned some more socializing skills. I could tell, because our next walk out together he was ready to PLAY with the next dog he met. (So much better than nervously hiding behind my legs!) And then at night, Migo got special, lovey-dovey treatment from Reggie and Richard.

The Bliss' have a beautiful home, and yet it is still welcoming to dogs. Their backyard is spacious and very nice, but it's also clear they let dogs be dogs. I appreciate that. I would have been uncomfortable if their yard was too nice.

I highly recommend this family as a home away from home for you four-legged baby. They understand and love their doggie friends. They were also really, really nice to me too! Thank you Reggie! Thank you Richard!
Read More...
Reggie and Richard were great - loving, sweet, understanding. My doggies were treated with the utmost care and I received updates and pictures regularly to put me at ease. I will definitely use them again!
We have used Reggie and Richard on multiple occasions and we can't say enough good things about them! They treat our dog Sadie like family and she always has a smile when I go to pick her up. We consider ourselves lucky to have found Reggie and Richard and look forward to many years with them:)

This is our fourth or fifth visit to Reggie and Richard's Blissful Retreat. Our sweet (and gigantic) puppy is always SO happy to visit his buddy Leo and make new friends during his stay with what we now call his "second family." Kidd is so well cared for, and is reluctant to leave. We love our daily updates, and photos of our very content love bug. The only bummer is he's usually depressed the first day we bring him home because he misses his friends! Which of course just means we will be back soon. Thanks, as always, for taking great care of our big guy - he loves you guys! We highly recommend this family. We love that Kidd has indoor/outdoor access and can make himself comfortable to come and go as he pleases in a safe, enclosed yards, with doggie friends and lots of bones and toys to chew and play with. The fact that he gets to sleep in the home at night instead of a kennel or cage is such a relief as well. Treat your doggies - you won't be disappointed!
Read More...
Just a quick visit, but a very happy puppy - thanks Reggie & Richard!
We are so glad we found the Bliss'. We feel comfortable leaving our pup with them, knowing he will be safe. He gets so excited to get into their house when we drop him off, and while he is there the Bliss' do an awesome job of keeping us in the loop--sending us pictures and emails telling us how he is doing--so we don't ever need to worry.

Our dog had her first overnight with Reggie & Richard and it could not have gone better. Our pooch was completely at ease: she ate all her food & pills, played with the other pups (which is a big deal because usually she is stand-offish) and slept under Reggie’s & Richard’s bed at night (another big deal because she has only slept under ours) When we picked her up she almost seemed disappointed to see us! I received daily updates/photos that mitigated my separation anxiety but more importantly the photos reinforced my decision from the initial meet & greet: Reggie & Richard are the perfect hosts for our girl.

Thank you, Reggie and Richard for taking such good care of Harley. We loved the pictures and information that you provided us regularly throughout his stay. Knowing that he was well taken care of made our vacation more enjoyable and worry-free.
Reggie and Richard were awesome with our two sweeties. We felt so at ease with them when we came for our initial visit and we could tell our doggies did too. We dropped them off for a overnight stay and were so pleased to get an update and pictures from them while we were away. We could tell they had a great time, when we came to pick them up the next day. They where so calm as they came out towards us, which was so different from past experiences in which they would come running towards us wanting to leave fast. I would highly recommend Reggie and Richard. Would not trust our doggies with anyone else!

Used to always worry about bringing our Lab into the kennel while away. NO worries now. It's as if we were taking him to family members we all love. The second he realized we were at Reggie and Richard's house, he got so excited and when their woofer saw ours, they tore away and there was no more need for us. As we drove away, we knew he'd have a wonderful experience and be completely happy.

Reggie and Richard are terrific! They are such lovely, dog loving people. While we're away, they send us pictures of our pup and let us know how he's doing. They're so accommodating and warm and wonderful people. Thank goodness we found them! Now we can make out-of-town plans with no worries about our four footed friend.

THANK YOU, Reggie and Richard, you ARE the best!

We could not have been happier to have found Reggie, Richard and Leo. It was as if we were bring him to stay with family members who he loves.
Zach and Leo made a perfect doggie duo and we're thrilled. Their kindnesses and love just came shining through...Zach will be so excited when we take him back in one week. Thank you, Bliss family.

This was the first time we tried DogVacay and we had a great experience. Most importantly our hosts Reggie and Richard were absolutely perfect!! Their house had a beautiful backyard which was exactly what our dog Eddy wanted and Reggie and Richard actually spent time playing fetch with Eddy. Additionally our hosts took pictures everyday and emailed them to us...It was so reassuring to see Eddy having such a great time...a real vacation. Reggie does not take too many dogs at the same time, so while Eddy has friends to play with (~ 3 dogs), things don't get too chaotic and they have enough time to devote to each of them.
So to summarize in one line Reggie and Richard 's place is the perfect doggie vacation destination !!

Reggie and Richard are great! My dog is my baby and I don't trust a lot of people to watch her. They made her feel like she was part of the family and she always has soooo much fun. I am so grateful that we found Reggie and Richard B.
We are so thankful for another great stay with Reggie and Richard! Our dog, Charlie, was so excited as we turned down their street to drop him off for his vacation. We received regular updates and photos on his stay. We can tell that he was very well taken care of. We will be utilizing them again in the near future.
Read More...
The daily updates along with the photos were so appreciated. Our vacation was made better because our dog was on vacation. I especially liked the freedom to play and go in and out the doggie door with their dog. I look forward to taking Tinkerbell back for a day, a night or a week.
Read More...
As always, Reggie and Richard were wonderful and Kidd had SUCH a great time with Leo and his other new friends I think he was a little sad to be home! We know he is in such good hands when we are away and it gives us great peace of mind. Kidd is looking forward to seeing Leo again soon! :)

What can I say? I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Reggie & Richard. I went on an 11 day European vacation last month in Sept. 2013 and was able to enjoy myself knowing my monkeys were well taken care of. I received daily, yes daily pics of my monkeys playing and having a good time. I felt guilty picking them up as I felt they were having the life every dog deserves. They played and were in the sun and I could see the love, care and attention they were getting. Leo, their dog is also an absolute wonderful host. I cannot say enough good things about Reggie & Richard. A HUGE heartfelt thank you to them. They are a blessing and as long as they are around and have availability, I will leave my monkeys with them. Thank you. xoxo :-)

Reggie and Richard are just the very best. They pay attention to every detail you give them about your dog. They go out of their way to make certain you feel comfortable about the safety and happiness of your dog. Jill is a picky eater, and they made sure she got the variety she liked, even purchasing more of a canned food she enjoyed!! You can't beat that. They are loving and caring family. I would recommend them without reservation. Lois and George

Reggie and Richard are amazing! We left our dog Orson with them for 5 nights, and got a daily update on how he was doing, as well as pictures.
We know for a fact that Orson had a great time with them! He was so happy to be there, and spend time with their dog Leo, as well as other dogs that were boarded at the same time. We will definitely board Orson with Reggie and Richard. I feel comfortable to know that this family takes good care of our baby as if he were theirs!

Reggie and Richard are the cream of the crop!! They give unbelievable attention to every detail in caring and loving your dog(s) in your absence. They were even able to bring out the playful nature in my older greyhound that we hadn't seen in many months!! They are devoted to the dogs and it shows in everything they do and say. THE BEST!!!

I left my baby for the first time ever, she liked Reggie & Richard & Leo the minute she met them I loved their sweetness and gentleness with my timid girl. It is so apparent their deep love for dogs!
Reggie & Richard are amazing hosts! I have total peace of mind when I leave my 5-month-old puppy in their care. They are loving, attentive and wonderful people with a safe and dog-friendly home. They know and understand dogs and have helped my puppy learn her manners. Doggy host, Leo, is awesome too. He is a gentle giant with so much love for all his guests. I highly recommend this Blissful Doggie Retreat. I'm so glad we found them -- Thank you DogVacay!!

Reggie and Richard are very warm people who made me feel comfortable leaving my sweet baby boy in their care. They took time to answer all my questions beforehand and clearly they enjoy the dogs they care for. I so appreciated their updates and great pics of my happy guy hanging out with Leo and enjoying his time at his Blissful Retreat! :) We will definitely be staying again - and bonus, he knows how to use the doggie door now! Thanks R&R!

Reggie and Richard are such a loving and compassionate couple. They are both always so positive and supportive. Their concern to help owners and their pets be as comfortable as possible is evident in everything they do.

Our dog thinks their home is her second home and always gets excited when she sees Reggie and Richard. We are blessed we found this couple to care for our dog.

Once again in gratitude,
Patt & Sal Sendejas

From the moment we met the Blisses, we felt comfortable leaving our precious dog with them. They sent us daily email updates and pictures which were an added bonus to the wonderful care and attention they gave him. We could tell that our dog had a good time during his stay because of the affection he showed them when we came to pick him up. The Blisses are a special find and although we wish we could keep it a secret, we will share our experience because we know they have enough love for dogs to go around.

Reggie and Richard were very welcoming to our dog. We had a very nice introduction and I immediately felt comfortable. Our dog Scamp roamed around the large yard and seemed quite happy with the other dogs. We got daily updates about Scamp, how he was doing and even pictures which the kids loved. I won't hesitate to ask their help with Scamp in the future

Reggie and Richard were wonderful hosts! They are true dog lovers. We left our dog with them for an entire week and he was obviously very well taken care of and loved. We enjoyed the daily pictures and updates. Our dog had so much fun and came home exhausted from all the playing. We will definitely use them again for our next vacation!

We had plans to go to Europe for 2 weeks, and were so anxious about what to do with our 6 month old puppy, Cooper. We had never been away from him, and we looked into kennels and house sitters, and nothing seemed quite right. I didn't want to buy our plane tickets until we figured out something for Cooper. The day we met Reggie and Richard, I knew we had found the perfect place for him, and that night I booked our tickets! They are such nice people, and Cooper had so much fun playing in the yard with their two adorable Goldens - we could tell he would be right at home with them. We received photo updates almost every day that we were gone, and could see that Cooper was having a great time. We highly recommend the "Blissful Doggie Retreat"!

Another fantastic stay for Zu! He is always such a happy and peaceful dog when I pick him up. He loves Reggie and Richard's dogs and misses them when I take him home. I'm ready to book again while I'm out of town for work in August!
We recently had out two dog stay with reggie and richard and already feel so comfortable with them. Our dogs were so happy staying there and we will for sure bring them back. They are so wondurful and love having dogs around. Its a great feeling when the already the second and third times our dogs stayed with them, the dogs were pulling us to their doorstep. My wife and i feel safe knowing our pets are in great hads with the Bliss's and they are good at giving feedback on how the stay went.
Thanks Reggie and Richard so glad we found you!

We left our Bella with Reggie and Richard and their 2 dogs and came back to find a very happy dog. Bella had so much fun playing with them that it seemed for the first 2 days she was as sad to be home for her vacation as I was to be home from mine. They are wonderful people and we are thrilled to have someone we can trust so close to home to wathc Bella when we go away.

Reggie and Richard are wonderful. This was the first time we left our dog and I felt immediately at ease when we met with them to make the decision where our dog would vacation. They were great with sending pictures but most of all taking care of our Dog. They cared for our dog like it was their own. I highly recommend Reggie and Richard. I am glad we found a second home for our dog when we are out of town.

There are not enough words to express my deep felt thanks for the wonderful care my dog, Bear, receives when she is in the care of Reggie and Richard Bliss. There name is so appropriate because my dog is always in a state of bliss at their home. They really know how to care for animals and during this stay she Bear had the pleasure of playing with the guest host dogs; Dexter and Leo, and also a playful Labrador that was also being cared for by this couple.

There isn't enough room on this website to list all the great benefits of having our dog cared for by Reggie and Richard. They are a loving, positive, couple with good knowledge about dogs, and they both have such big hearts. Most of all I have peace of mind when I leave Bear in their care! They have truly found their calling as Dog Vacation Care Hosts! I rate them a 10 Plus!

Thank you Richard and Reggie! Bear is looking forward to her next stay.

Reggie and Richard are wonderful people and really know dogs! On our meet/greet, they were very patient since my 6 month old German Shepherd puppy (Zu) is very protective of me. They spent over an hour introducing him to the three other dogs. While I was out of town, I received photos and updates daily and they fed Zu a special diet for me! There house is safe and fun, with a doggie pool to splash in. Their two Golden Retrievers are super sweet and it was really good to have them help my puppy become more socialized. He was happy and worn out from the fun play time when I picked him up. I'm ready to book another week with them in July! Thank you both for taking such great care of my boy!!!

Thank you Reggie and Richard for opening your door to our baby Ejk. What a lovely house and people you are! We know he had a blast and all the care and love he got. Thank you again and see you very soon. Gabi&Vick &Ejk
My boyfriend and I had just moved to CA and had to go on a business trip. I was lucky to find the DogVacay site and through the site found the greatest people and their two dogs that we could of asked for. Reggie and Richard opened up their hearts and home to my dog Sadie. Everyday we received pictures and updates of all the fun that Sadie was having. These two people love and care about every dog they watch and it shows. Every time we need to have Sadie watched, Blissful Doggie Retreat is the place she will go!

Reggie and Richard are amazing!!! We were in a tight bind trying to find the perfect place for our girl Marley. She's very shy and anxious usually in new surroundings but as soon as she met Reggie and Richard (and their adorable Golden's) she was at ease! They were able to accommodate us at such short notice. Such a sweet couple with great values! They took such wonderful care of her! I could tell Marley had a mini vacation there as she seemed to want to stay longer! She bonded beautifully with the dogs there. I couldn't be happier! Already booked her for daycare :)

Reggie and Richard were terrific. We had a special need (a leg brace) that they took great care to put on and take off; as well as massage her foot after it came off. We felt they really enjoyed having our dog be a part of their family for the time she was there. Our dog (9 years old) had never been left with strangers before. She took right to them. We couldn't be happier.

Pawsome!!!
We had our dog Tigi stay with Reggie & Richard while we went on a vacation to Australia. Being so far away for the first time and on a different time zone, it was very important to us to find responsible hosts we could trust to truly enjoy our time abroad. We sure did! Reggie & Richard are phenomenal hosts.
They both are wonderful, warm & loving people. They will embrace your pooch as their own. Outside our family circle, we would not leave our Tigi with anyone else in the future. Reggie & Richard are simply the best! Thank you again. Mark & Simi

My husband and I were invited to meet Reggie & Richard at their home for a meet and greet. We had an opportunity to introduce our 5 month old golden retriever puppy to their two golden retrievers, Dexter and Leo. The dogs hit it off immediately, and Dexter and Leo were great hosts.

We felt that Reggie and Richard were very experienced dog owners. We were concerned about who to leave our dog with because she had surgery just 6 days before we left her. Reggie and Richard were very concerned about checking her stitches and making sure she was doing fine. I received photos daily of her activities. She had the run of the yard and was welcomed as if she were their own dog. She quickly learned how to use their dog door.

I even received personal texts on my cell phone from them when they learned I did not have easy access to a computer. They reassured me of her condition and kept me up to date with info and photos of her activities while in their care.

We were very happy with her care and would use them again in the future.
