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 compete in AKC agility, rally, obedience, sled dog racing, lure coursing, scent work, trick dog and the AKC Breed ring.  Chinooks love to hike and swim!   Herding?  No problem!  Click on any photo below to start the slide show.
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!

We are honored to be the first Chinook Breeder officially recognized as a Breeder of Merit by the American Kennel Club. "The AKC® is proud to recognize AKC Breeder of Merit participants who are dedicated to breeding beautiful purebred dogs whose appearance, temperament, and ability are true to their breed. These accomplished breeders are the heart of the AKC."
Chinooks love to keep busy and ours are no exception.  Unlike some other busy breeds, the Chinook has a reliable "off switch", and Chinooks are masters at cuddling on the couch with family.
