Introduction

The Chinook is a very intelligent, athletic, and talented sled dog. Many people who live in northern snow-filled states own Chinooks, as they are quite popular. However, although well-known in the north, they are a very rare breed. At one point, they almost became extinct! The Chinook is the official dog of the state of New Hampshire.

This breed was bred to be strong and mighty with a lot of stamina. This is because they were, and still are, used to haul things and run sleds. Although a powerful working dog, the Chinook is a loving and loyal family dog that is great around children. The Chinook wants to please their owner and is also used for other tasks, such as search and rescue, agility, and even herding.

Chinook Name Considerations

If you have acquired a Chinook, either by adoption, rescue, or as a puppy, then congratulations! A Chinook is a wonderful, hard-working, and loyal dog. They also make a great family member. If you are wondering what to name your newest family member, there are many great options. 

You may choose to name your dog from a state of New Hampshire city, or even a climate type. Many people who own Chinooks name them after the founder, Arthur Walden and other popular New Hampshire terms and sledding words such as Musher, Summit or Bear. Other pet parents will tag their Chinook with Hampshire since they are the official state dog. 

Because the Chinook is an excellent sled dog, you can name your dog after the snow he loves, using monikers such as Snowy, Drifty, or Toboggan. Consider naming your companion after a personality trait or appearance - Mocha, Almond, Brownie, or Pack (as in being loyal to the pack) are perfect titles. 

Your Chinook is probably already very special to you and has formed a bond with your family. Your family can help you select a name for your dog. You may wish to name your dog a human name to fit the true family member role, such as Max, Charlie, Sadie, or DeeDee. It depends on what you see in your dog and your Chinook's true personality and characteristics!
