“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 38 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?

Salt Mission Kennels has its own unique culture as a result of the answer to the “why” question. So here is my personal “why” at the core of my being I believe that curiosity, relationship, learning, and teaching are essential to our well being.  The same thing holds true whether we are boarding, grooming, evaluating behavior issues or conducting obedience lessons, curiosity and relationship, learning and teaching remain the foundation of our culture. If our culture resonates with what you want for your pet care experience we would love to have you.
