Chinooks do it all!
Hiking: Hikes test Chinooks' work ethic and challenge their abilities, and the dogs see a hike as all-out fun. Intervale Chinooks have over 50 different White Mountain peaks "under their collars", including 12 of the New Hampshire Mountains' 4000 footers. Ferncroft Chinooks with Zealand from our breeding is the first Chinook team to complete hiking all of New Hampshire's 4000 footers!
Mushing: A musher is anyone who uses dog power in some manner to move forward, be it with sled, skis (also called skijoring), bike, scooter, or roller blades. Mushers come in all shapes and sizes, all ages, and all skill levels too, participating for fun or for competition. Chinooks have a rich history of mushing behind them and many Chinook owners and breeders want to see mushing instinct and drive preserved in the Chinook - and what a great way to get out and have fun with our dogs!
Can Chinooks compete in sprint races? You bet we can!
Intervale started racing with our Chinooks in 1997. We have raced in the "Minor Leagues", for fun, experience, training, socializing and the occasional trophy. Our race circuit has included Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachussetts, New Hampshire and Maine. If you are interested in sled dog racing, look for clubs near you, either listed on Sled Dog Central, or check with your regional Malamute or Siberian clubs.
Crystal says: Paddling with your Chinook can bring you to your very own deserted island!
