As the AKC Parent Club of the Chinook, The Chinook Club of America (CCA) is dedicated to the protection and preservation of the rare American breed of sled dog.

This website is the perfect place to become acquainted, further your interest, and become involved with this wonderful breed of dog. The love and dedication of Chinook fanciers has saved these dogs from extinction and is now helping them rediscover their heritage as the unequalled, all purpose working dog - a sled dog that succeeds on the trail as well as in the house as a treasured pet. Whether the Chinook is running in teams down a snowy trail, earning show titles, flying through an agility trial, hiking up a mountain, obediently and lovely staring into the eyes of its owner, or snuggling on the couch with a child, the Chinook is the ideal companion.
