COA Membership

Membership has its privileges! As a member of the COA, you will have access to the members-only area where you can create your own and/or your dog’s profiles, have access to a membership directory to connect with other members in area, receive the Chinook Quarterly (CQ) online newsletter, participate in contests including the annual COA Calendar contest, and receive information on Chinook events like the annual COA National Specialty & Family Reunion and Winter Carnival in New Hampshire.

You are also invited to join the COA-L Yahoo group, an email list exclusively for COA members. Under your membership area you will also have access to extensive historical information on the Chinook, like no other found all in one place on the web! Finally, the COA is proud to promote the Chinook as a true working dog and as a member you can earn Working Dog certificates and titles for your Chinook. You do not have to own a Chinook to join! We have many "Chinook Friends" and “Chinook-Alikes” in our membership.

In addition to membership, the COA also offers special services to Chinook breeders and stud owners. Breeders can list their kennel on our Breeder's Page and can advertise their upcoming litters where potential puppy owners can contact you from our site. They are also entitled to list all studs on our Stud Page. If you aren't a breeder but have a stud you want to advertise, you can purchase a separate package to list your stud on the COA Stud Page. Both require separate fees.

Please consider making an additional donation to the COA. Your donations will go to help sponsor our Chinook Rescue, Chinook Pedigree Project (CPP), Crossbreeding Program and COA sponsored events such as the Winter Carnival in New Hampshire and the COA National Specialty & Family Reunion.
