Kate – AKC CH UKC BIS GRCH RACEN Katmary’s Rainbow (of Forest Lakes) CGC TKN Total Dog

Katerina joins us from Russia where her parents are top performers. Just look at the list of titles on her pedigree! Outside of the ring, Kate is very chill – she was perhaps the calmest puppy we’ve ever encountered! However, Kat is a powerhouse in the ring; with stunning presentation and amazing movement! We are so in love with this little lady!

Katerina earned a Reserve Best in Show Puppy (RBISP) in August 2021 over 11 other breeds of pups and Best Puppy/Best Female/Best of Winners over 6 other stellar standard poodles in September 2021; defeated only by our very own Romeo in Best of Breed (BOB).

In November 2021, at 8 months old, Katerina attended two days of UKC shows. She earned four BOB, two Group 4s, a Group 3 and a Group 1; beating out three champions each time including our own Blaze! The first two wins finished out her championship and the second two earned her two legs toward her Grand Championship (and she beat our own Romeo)! At our first show of 2022, at 10 months old, Kate earned her Grand Championship with 3 Champion class wins over 2 other champions and a Best of Breed. In her first show as a Grand Champion, she won the GRCH class, BOB and a Group 2 for Gun Dogs.

Katie embarked on her AKC career 2/3/2023 and brought home a 3 point major AND a 4 point major 2 weeks after I dropped her off to Ann Rairigh and at their first show together! At her second show, in March, she earned a 5 point major! Katie finished her Championship 3/31/23 at Key to the Sea Poodle Specialty with another 5 point major!

In May 2023, Katie earned her RACEN title in Precision Coursing, a BEST IN SHOW and a Total Dog!! She amazes me every day!

We decided to delay her first litter so she could spend the summer of 2023 being handled by a friend’s granddaughter in Juniors. They will be at Premier Nationals this year (including Top Ten Juniors) and we cannot wait to see how they do!

Katerina is clear for all identified genetic diseases found in the breed as well as 204 other genetic diseases. She passed her PennHip and preliminary elbows with flying colors. She passed OFA cardiac and eye exams in December 2022, earning her CHIC certificate.
