“Have you ever thought, this is everything everyone seems to be doing so why don’t I feel a sense of ease?

Take a walk down the path with me for a moment, when you go camping or hiking or skiing when you get to the mountains do you discover purple red yellow trees, are the trees and grass artificial, is the snow plastic, how would that be for you?

It wouldn’t be a great experience because you want a fresh and natural experience? Well it’s the same for your dogs, they don’t know what to do with colors they can 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 you 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 dog.

On our path at salt mission we believe in CARING FOR THE INDIVIDUAL TO OUR LEFT AND TO OUR RIGHT. To meet this goal we must respect the dogs and cats in our care for who they are how they think and the partnership we invite. On the salt mission path every part of our facility, our play yards, and our interactions with the dogs and cats in our care are designed to appeal to and meet their needs because when we have them to the left or the right they are free to join in relax and enjoy their experience. When you the human realizes this shift to dog or cat centered you can find your ease.”
