The Blissful Dog Team is a hard-working, dog-loving, horse loving, Netflix binging crew. We love making each product individually and filling it with love, to share with your dogs.
KATHY DANNEL VITCAK | CEO | FOUNDER | OWNER
I've got a full page of my rambling about ME - check it out here.
ASHLEY HOFFMAN | DIRECTOR PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT | OFFICE MANAGER
Ashley studied Agricultural Business at the University of Minnesota in Crookston, MN. Ashley is an avid horse lover and can be seen running down Hwy 32 chasing them when they get loose. Ashley is to my right.
We give a shout out to Amanda Hoffman, who has helped out in a pinch in between her hectic college schedule. We wish her the best of luck as graduation nears.
TERI HOFFMAN | CO-OFFICE MANAGER | PRODUCT SPECIALIST | COMMUNITY LIASON
Yep, Teri is Ashley and Amanda's mom and has joined the crew here. She keeps us all in line and on time. Teri has that ever-so-valuable gift of cutting to the nuts and bolts of the matter and infusing her special brand of common sense into our work.
Teri has a degree in accounting and has my deepest respect. The whole concept of accounting evades me totally.
STEVE VITCAK | TRANSPORTATION DIRECTOR | OFFICIAL SCAPEGOAT
The Husband, as he is referred to, has been fired and re-hired repeatedly. Steve is also who is blamed for anything that goes wrong. THAT is a very valuable position. When he isn’t busy fishing with friends, he is our indispensable Transportation Director. IRL, he and his dog Pagel drive the mail to the Post Office and drop packages off at FedEx. For that we are very grateful.
SANCHI BELLAGIO BOUND AT JACKPOT! | GIO
GIO is an English Toy Spaniel, they are like a smaller, flatter-faced Cavalier with short tails. He prefers we call him THE LITTLE KING or THE BABY. Gio squeaks the most pathetic, yet insistent bark, until he is picked up and put into his fave position, behind me in my office chair.
CH. JACKPOT! THE DUDE ABIDES STANDBAYOU | THE DUDE
Aka THE MOST INTERESTING FRENCH BULLDOG IN THE WORLD. Dude leans against my legs while I work, making sure he gets as close as possible to the wheels of my office chair. DUDE protects us from chipmunks, squirrels, the unseen demons that only dogs can see and keeps anyone from stealing the rug. Because, that rug really ties the room together…
ZOE | GUARDIAN OF THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE
ZOE is our patient, hard-working Great Pyrenees. ZOE makes 100% sure no bears, skunks, raccoons, or deer enter the property. She gives squirrels and chipmunks a pass, as they are beneath her dignity. Zoe is the grounding force of the property and I am humbled by her quiet dignity, calm demeanor and confidence. She looks at me with gentle disdain when I do something she considers silly, which is quite often.
