Welcome to Intervale Chinooks
Our kennel takes its name from Birch Intervale, the New Hampshire sled dog training grounds for Arthur Walden's Chinook dogs.
Our Chinooks are our constant companions - creative and comical, easy keepers, and easy to love.
Chinook Dogs are canine family companions who like to keep busy:
Chinook activities include sledding, trialing in obedience, rally, agility, herding, lure coursing, scent work, showing in the conformation ring, biking, swimming, and hiking out on desolate mountain trails.
A Chinook's favorite pastime? Cuddling on the couch with their family!

We support canine health screens on our Chinooks. Look for Intervale Chinooks listed on the CHIC and OFA canine health websites. Frisco, Kali, Katherine, Crystal, Ursa, Claire, Franklin, Belle and Jazzy all have their CHIC's as do other family members. (Link to Chinooks listed on CHIC.)
Over the last 22 years, our Chinooks have participated in multiple genetic research studies on the Chinook. If you are looking for a Chinook, ask the breeder what health screens they participate in-this is important!
