Welcome to Desert Sol Chinooks

Desert Sol Chinooks is a small, hobby breeder of the Chinook dog, a rare American breed from New England originally bred for sledding and temperament. The Chinook dog has been described as "the "world's best kept secret" as they are loving, gentle, great for families, have a moderate energy level, are good working dogs, and make excellent companions (everything one could want in a dog!).

We are located in Gilbert, Arizona (we know...that's a long ways from any snow), and are committed to responsibly promoting the breed in the southwest United States. If you or someone you know is interested in a Chinook dog, please let us know and we can set up a meeting with our Chinook dog breed ambassador, Kyra.

Kyra is our official Chinook dog breed ambassador. We welcome anyone who is interested in a Chinook dog to come and meet Kyra (and Zazu, our Chinook ambassador-in-training). Folks have traveled from as far as Massachusetts, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Canada to meet her here in AZ. Her puppies have been placed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, Texas, and Washington and are a part of the Desert Sol family.

If you decide to visit, please do not try to sneak out with her, break in and take her, lure her away with peanut butter treats, or remove her from our home in any way. It's true, she's loveable and gorgeous and you may feel the urge to do any or all of the aforementioned atrocities, but she's ours. ;)
