Have you ever thought, this is everything everyone seems to be doing so why don’t I feel a sense of ease?Consider a narrative with me for a moment, when you go camping or hiking and  you get to the mountains do you expect purple, red or yellow plastic trees?  Is the grass artificial?  How would that be for you? It wouldn’t be a great experience because you want and expect a fresh and natural experience?

Well it’s the same for your dogs, they don’t know what to do with colors they can’t experience like you and I do, the unnatural plastic equipment looks funny, smells funny, and feels funny. Fake grass also feels funny and smells even more weird to your dogs, urine and nylon/plastic fibers create a less than desired affect for your dogs! The  artificial environment is meant to appeal to your senses not your dogs.

On our path to answer our own questions we have come to believe the central question is “why” we do what we do. We believe our why is what makes us unique. Salt Mission believes in taking care of the needs to our left and to our right creating the ideal platform to meet the real needs of every dog and cat and owner that comes through our gate. It’s all about the real dog and cat experience and the ultimate invitation to a meaningful relationship.
