We are a family with two Chinooks living in the centre of Switzerland in a UNESCO biosphere reserve. Our intention is to become hobby breeders of the Chinook dog and possibly the first outside the United States. We strive to breed for health and working ability of these wonderful companions as well as promote the conservation of the Chinook breed.

The Chinook is a very rare, American breed originating from New England in the early 1900's that has been known as 'the world's best kept secret' since its popularity in the 1940's. Chinook dogs are known for their working ability as sled dogs as well as their loving temperament as family dogs.

If you are interested in giving a Chinook dog a forever home, using positive training methods and enjoying regular outdoor activities, the Chinook might be the breed for you!
