Dog Shows

Each year, the COA sponsors a National Specialty that all Chinooks can compete in. This is a fun, family event that allows UKC-registered Chinooks and their owners to compete in classes that include regular, altered and Chinook cross dogs from small puppies to experienced veterans. It's a great opportunity to socialize with other Chinooks and their owners.

In addition, many Chinooks compete in Conformation, Rally Obedience, Weight Pull, Agility, Lure Coursing and more at local and regional UKC dog shows. Whether it's at a National Specialty or a multi-breed show, new participants are always welcomed, and more seasoned Chinook owners are always ready with advice and assistance for folks that are new to the show ring. If you haven't participated in a Conformation or Performance event, it's a great way to strengthen your bond with your dog and do something fun together. Find out about upcoming shows UKC shows here.

If you have questions about Conformation or Performance events, contact the Bench Chair for more information.
