What is the Chinook Health Database?

The Chinook Health Database is an open database Chinook owners and breeders can use to share information on Chinook dogs. It is our hope that this open sharing of information will lead to better breeding decisions and a continuous improvement throughout the Chinook breed. Feel free to come in and browse. Breeders wishing to add or edit their Chinook's informtion will need to register when you first start adding information. The program will prompt you for your information at the appropriate time. You must use your current email address to register.

Is this a registry?

No. The Chinook Health Database is focused on health data for Chinooks and is not a registry. Although the database will compile pedigrees, you should consult paperwork from official registries such as UKC and COA (Chinook Cross) or listing services such as AKC/FSS. They will be valuable when you want to confirm the accuracy of information in this database.

As a user, what are my responsibilities?

Before entering data, please read the directions in each section on how do enter that specific data.

Information may be entered by any registered user, not just the owner or breeder of the dog. We do not review the information and we make absolutely no claims as to its accuracy. The Chinook Health Database is a good place to start your pedigree research, but if accuracy of information is important, you should independently verify the accuracy of the information you find with an official registry (UKC or COA-Chinook Cross) or listing service (AKC/FSS).

For information that is critical to your breeding program, consult the owners of the listed dogs or the public registries such as OFA and CERF.
