about us

What started as a dream became reality in 2017 when Southern Pro opened its doors. Since then hundreds of dogs have stayed with us. Helping dogs and their owners is our passion. At Southern Pro, we love what we do and can't wait to meet you and your dog.

Haley is both the owner and head trainer for Southern Pro.

She's a Chattanooga native and discovered her gift for training dogs when she was still a student at UTC. Her parents got her a chocolate lab puppy and she fell in love with training him. At this point in time, Haley's skills were raw but it was apparent to anyone who saw her work that she had a gift. She had planned on going into nursing, but instead, followed her heart and took up dog training. She spent years learning and honing her skills under the famed Roddy Reynolds before going out on her own. 

Haley enjoys hunting, diving, and fishing.
