I’m Dennis Lowder, co-founder of Rocky Ridge Pomskies. Just to be clear, I’m the one on the right, in the plaid shirt. The beautiful woman you see on the left is my wife, Sharon.
Besides our family, there are three things in particular that Sharon and I love: Siberian Huskies, Pomeranians, and Idaho’s breathtaking mountains. Perhaps you see where this is headed.
Recently, Sharon and I purchased 13½ acres near the humble town of Salmon, Idaho. You should see it! All that sits between our property and the Salmon-Challis National Forest is pristine BLM land. The area is famous for the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, the largest wilderness area in the lower 48. It wasn’t long before it occurred to us that Siberian Huskies would love our land as much as we do.
Our kennel was one of the first structures we built. Actually, “kennel” is an understatement. “Palace” is more like it.
Huskies like privacy, so each has her own, roomy space. Huskies also like to roam, so each has her own doggy door to come in or go out and explore as she chooses. Huskies are particular about temperature, so we keep the building comfortably warm in winter and nice and cool in summer.
I’m a stickler when it comes to keeping the kennel clean. I designed it so that I can pressure-wash everything—walls and floor—and keep the place immaculate. Step inside and you won’t smell a trace of filth, because there isn’t any.
I’m also kind of a nut when it comes to keeping the dogs healthy and groomed. That’s why I hired Jessie Warren as our general manager. Jessie has a degree in Veterinary Technology and loves the dogs every bit as much as Sharon and I do.
