“Deb” Yarbrough-Owner Salt Mission Kennels

“What is your why?”  For many on the surface that might seem like an easy question or maybe a unnecessary question but for me personally and Salt Mission Kennels it turns out to be a very significant question that needed an answer. Why have I stayed professionally involved in dogs for over 40 yrs, why did I build Salt Mission, why have we a developed a specific and unique training method, why do we groom every dog like a show dog? At  four decades of involvement our “why” is simple: we wanted a kennel in the country, a small kennel to keep it personal, a facility the does not generate stress, an indoor/outdoor facility that provides the best of both worlds, play yards because dogs play and explore, care providers that are knowledgeable and caring, an owner who lives on the property. All of this adds up to we care about your pets and their care and experiences and your piece of mind.
