Michael Barnes
Valley Way Kennels

Michael grew up a Huntsville, AL native, up until college where he obtained a bachelor’s degree in Building Science as well as a double minor in Business, and Sustainability from Auburn University. Post graduation, Michael served as an associate trainer for a local trainer where he would eventually establish Valley Way in 2017. Michael founded Valley Way Kennels out of the desire to provide a one stop shop for premium Boykin Spaniels. Michael has been an avid hunter for years and looks to make a positive change in how Boykin Spaniels are perceived in families who are very involved in hunting and the outdoors.
