About Roddy Reynolds

Happily married to his bride Julie and the proud father of two sons serving in the Navy, Roddy Reynolds lives at the foot of Lookout Mountain near Chattanooga, TN. Reaching the prime of life in his mid fifties, Roddy has a wealth of experience puppy training for enjoyable companionship, perfect retrieving and top dog competitions.

In fact “Roddy dogs” have come to be known for their fun-loving personalities, excellent physique and responsiveness in performance. So much so, that people began requesting that Roddy create a training DVD series starting with a puppy training DVD. If you know Roddy personally, you quickly learn that he is unassuming and very laid back…not a drill sergeant over his dogs. And certainly not someone seeking fame through a training DVD series. He’s more like your favorite uncle you always loved visiting when you were young.

His experience of over 25 years working with dogs has built a unique training method. He catches you off guard with his techniques that are so easy and yet so often not used by most people. Simplicity that resonates…Focusing on the positive puppy training methods of pressure and praise, Roddy does not rely on bribery or begging to get dogs to do the right thing.And that suits Roddy just fine. Nothing complicated, just simple and true. Get ready to meet Roddy and a new enjoyable experience with your dogs!

Our Philosophy

Spend any time at all at Blowing Springs Kennel and you will know that you are not at your typical dog boarding facility. Located in beautiful Flintstone, Georgia, just minutes from downtown Chattanooga, TN, Blowing Springs Kennel is the region's premier gun dog boarding and training facility. The facilities at Blowing Springs Kennel are unmatched in this area. Our newly expanding indoor kennel area is climate controlled and completely secure. All of the dogs participate in supervised play time at least four times daily in our fenced yard that features grass, mulch, gravel and shade trees. We also have approximately 50 acres adjacent to the kennel facility that are used for training. Dogs that are boarded with us will receive the best care, most attention, and the most group recreation of any other kennel.
