The new Southern Pro Kennel will have its official grand opening on Saturday at the location at Blowing Spring just across the Georgia line from St. Elmo.

The new kennel is associated with Blowing Spring Kennel, long operated by Roddy Reynolds.

Southern Pro Kennel was founded by Haley and Ben O'Neal.

Haley has worked closely with Roddy over the last seven years, working her way up to kennel manager and then head trainer at the Blowing Spring Kennel that is on Highway 193 across from the Rock City barn property.

Southern Pro Kennel is on the new highway nearby across from a pond that is at the rear of the Rock City barn property.

The new kennel went under construction last year and began accepting dogs in March of this year.

Ben is the general manager, while Haley handles the dog training.

Southern Pro Kennel features 2,800 square feet of interior space, 100 acres of flooded timber and six ponds for swimming and training.

There are 18 runs open to a common area at the "bark-free" facility.

The grand opening is from 2-5 p.m.

The kennel can be contacted at (423) 667-9864.
