Welcome to
RaineDance Australian Shepherds 
ASCA Hall of Fame Kennel #136

We are a small kennel located in Santa Rosa about an hour north of San Francisco, California. We are dedicated to the health and promotion of this versatile, happy breed. I have enjoyed the company of dogs my whole life, but truly the Aussie has captured my heart! Please take a look around, and you will find some fine examples of true Aussie spirit. Beautiful, intelligent, responsive, energetic and FULL of personality, Aussies have what it takes to do ANYTHING.

Enjoy!  The RaineDance LOGO will always bring you back here...check below for the latest news!
