Doggie Bliss is a family-run and operated business born out of pure love and compassion for animals. In 2010, owner Shannon Hill, along with her partner and two Boston Terriers, traveled cross-country from New York. She told herself that she’d only stay out in Santa Monica for a year, but soon began to fall in love with everything: the palm trees, the ocean, the sun, and most of all, the dogs…so many DOGS!!! Not only were the dogs amazing, but the way their owners took care of them was truly admirable. She began dog walking and pet sitting as a part-time job, but soon realized that caring for animals full-time was destined to be her career. Shannon started Doggie Bliss as a one-woman operation, and has organically grown the business into what it is today.

Our mission is to provide our clients with the very best, personalized pet care, while allowing them to be completely relaxed and worry-free. We are proud to have a staff composed solely of employees, not independent contractors, which really sets us apart from our competitors. Each of us strive to give your pet just the right amount of affection and exercise to guarantee his or her maximum health and happiness. We understand that just like people, animals have their own unique personalities. For this reason, we treat each pet as an individual in order to better recognize their different needs and likes. We also pride ourselves on learning the expectations of each pet owner to ensure that our clients are more than satisfied with our service!

Doggie Bliss is a highly rated and dependable dog walking and pet sitting service based in Santa Monica, CA. We are licensed, bonded, and insured, and are extremely honored to care for our community’s precious animals. We can’t wait to meet you and your pet!

Doggie Bliss is the most caring and professional dog walking service! They have been hiking my... boxer Emmit for 6 years now, and he missed them so much during Quarantine. The dog walkers are so careful when they pick up Emmit and I never worry about COVID with them. Doggie Bliss follows the LA Dept of Health rules to the letter! Walks around my neighborhood weren't enough for Emmit and he started putting on weight. Thank goodness Doggie Bliss is back keeping him fit with long hikes!read more

Doggie Bliss is beyond wonderful. They thoughtfully, reliably and professionally walk my dogs... allowing for a slow 'sniffy' cruise around several blocks for a total of one hour. My babies are tired and oh so happy after each meeting. I highly recommend Doggie Bliss to anyone who loves his/her dog.read more

Sparky, Bailey and Jasper LOVE Doggie Bliss - the walks, the overnight stays, the very kind care. ... Jasper is NOT GREAT around other dogs - and his walkers are wonderful with him. Never had an issue - and the dogs are so happy with all their Doggie Bliss friends. I couldn't recommend more highly!read more

If you're like me, you need a dog walker you trust AND someone who is reliable, including holidays,... during illness, etc. Doggie Bliss is always there for me and, most importantly, my sweet furbaby. If a substitute is needed for my regular dog walker, they always give me plenty of notice and I get to meet the substitute dog walker ahead of time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!read more

I've known Shannon and her team for almost 10 years. Not only are they trustworthy, professional... and reliable, but they truly love animals. I had 2 older cats... Very spoiled, of course.. And they treated them with care and compassion. One has since passed, and I am sure his lonely buddy will enjoy their loving, human touch. Her capable and caring sitters were always accessible, responsive and dedicated to go the extra step for the kitties.read more

My dog, Axl, walked with Doggie Bliss for about 2.5 years, until I moved out of Los Angeles. He got... two walks each day, and we didn't have a single negative experience! In the mornings he went on buddy walks, and Doggie Bliss did a nice job of finding him a "buddy dog" who matched his temperament and energy level. In the afternoons, they took him to the local dog park. I really liked how flexible the scheduling system is and how they tailored their services to Axl's specific needs. They were never not been able to fulfill one of my requests for service, and Shannon was always super responsive when I have questions/special requests. Doggie Bliss made my life so much easier!read more

My husband and I have been using Doggie Bliss and love it. Our pup was very scared of people coming... into the house and taking him for walks. Doggie Bliss worked with us to find the perfect walker and now he looks forward to his walks and loves his walker. Monica is super responsive, always follows up and it's great to have a consistent person for our pup. Thanks Doggie Bliss!read more

I can't handle my dogs on walks due to back issues, them being big and me being small; I simply don't know what I would do without them.read more

Cannot say enough wonderful things about Doggie Bliss and their wonderful team! I was new to LA and... nervous about finding someone to take my dog out for mid-day walks and Doggie Bliss made it so easy! Their dog walkers are professional, reliable, and clearly love what they do! I also appreciate how easy it is to schedule things through their site. Their dog walkers do a great job of communicating while you're out of town, etc, so you know your pup is in good hands.read more

I have been using Doggie Bliss for a little over a year now. Shannon, Alina, and the rest of the... crew have been fantastic with my occasionally fearful dog. He goes on both regular walks and the hikes. They always provide feedback on the walks by email with a picture so I know what he has been up to that day while I am at work. Highly recommend.read more

We've used Doggie Bliss for 2 years now since I took full-time job from being self-employed and... working from home. I highly recommend this company for the following reasons: 1) Coverage no matter what. If my regular walker can't make it, they arrange for a back-up walker that I've either met before or can meet in advance. 2) Convenience. I can reach them in a variety of ways and easily change my schedule online. 3) Easy payment. My credit card is automatically billed and I'm emailed a detailed receipt. 4) Last but definitely NOT least: my baby girl LOVES our regular walker. He's very patient with all her quirks and is very flexible with my changing schedule.read more
