  • Care

    When it comes to grooming, Chinooks are low maintenance. Brush their double coats at least once per week—more often during seasonal shedding events—to remove dead hair. A pin brush or slicker brush can help reduce shedding. Chinooks also require regular ear cleanings, nail trims, and a dental care routine that includes at-home teeth brushing and professional cleanings. Start these grooming essentials when Chinooks are puppies to ensure they are part of their routine.

    Their tails are broad at the base, taper at the end, and have distinct but moderate fringing. Chinooks also have medium-sized, almond-shaped eyes with black rims that convey an intelligent, inquisitive, kind expression.

  • Disorders

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
