Chinooks are a rare All-American breed of companion sled dogs native to New England. These devoted companions excel both as family pets and as canine competitors in almost any dog sports.
Vanguard Chinooks is a small kennel dedicated to the Chinook dog based in western New Jersey with long weekends & vacations in New Hampshire. I have been blessed to share my life with these dogs for over a decade, and am committed to ensuring there are healthy, happy Chinooks to enrich their peoples’ lives far into the future.
Chinooks are devoted to their people, and just want to be with them whether on the trail or on a couch. I enjoy many activities with my dogs, including agility, nose work, tracking, Rally obedience, therapy work, and of course activities related to the Chinook pulling heritage like sledding, bike-joring, and weight pull.
