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.
