Owner's History

Kathy Rasmussen founded Rainbow Show Dogs in the late 1970's.  
She continues to be involved in dog sports and is a member of the
following organizations:

  • Siberian Husky Club of America
  • Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America
  • AKC Canine Good Citizen Evaluator
  • Certified Bronze Trick Dog Instructor and Stunt dog judge
  • Master trainer in Canine Fitness

Kathy and her daughter, Kari Smith's, first show dog was a Siberian
Husky.  Their biggest success with Siberian Huskies came in the early
1990's with their Best In Specialty Show, multiple Group winning, top
ten ranked Champion KisNTel's I See A Rainbow. Three of her
grandsons earned a Champion(CH) and two earned Companion Dog
(CD) titles and all three have their Rally Novice(RN) obedience titles
and one has earned his Rally Advance (RA) title. The two with CDs
were also Specialty High In Trial winners. There are currently two
Siberians in Kathy's home.

In 1999 we added a Cardigan Welsh Corgi to the line up and now we
have 6 in residence. Our Cardigans have earned numerous AKC
Championships, AKC Obedience and Rally Obedience titles (CD and
RN) and multiple TDAA agility titles. Our eldest Cardigan is herding
instinct certified.  He also was the Highest Scoring Champion of
Record at both of the 2002 National Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of
America National Specialty Obedience Trials. Our dogs earn their
Canine Good Citizen's and AKC Puppy Star certifications. We have
produced five litters of Cardigans, and in each litter - we have had
pups earn Championship points. In 2008 we got our first Bred By
Exhibitor AKC Champion.  We are also proud that the 2009 CWCCA
Nationals - our 3 show prospect Cardigan babies all earned
placements in large classes - at barely 6 months of age! (News Flash -
2012 one of our dogs won Bred-by Exhibitor Best of Breed at the
Annual Eukanuba Dog Show held in Orlando, FL)

In 2003 we added our third breed, the Pointer, to our family. All of our
Pointers earned their Championships within their first year of
showing.  We are extremely proud that all our chosen breeds have
earned placements at their respective National Specialty shows in
Conformation and Obedience.

Kari is the active one in conformation and now a Professional Dog
Handler while Kathy has taken over the reins in the performance
events.  She has started competing in agility and is training several
of their dogs in that venue along with obedience.  Both of these
ladies work hard promoting the sport of dogs.

For the last several years, both have been teaching other people the
sport of showing their dogs through our involvement with local area
clubs.  This facility is a dream of Kathy's.   We hope to show dog
lovers all the different activities they can enjoy with their pampered
family members.  Dogs love attention from their owners and there is a
sport that can suit everyone – let us help you discover your sport!
