GreatMountain Breeding Plans for 2013
We are taking applications for anticipated 2011 litters.  Included on this list are breedings that will take place at different kennels around the country that involve dogs produced and co-owned by GreatMountain.  We are mentoring these new breeders and helping them place their puppies in suitable homes.

 


Associated Litter - puppies have arrived! We're pleased to be expecting a puppy back from Callicoon Chinooks litter of five beautiful pups born in late August.  We are looking for a home to keep a male or female intact for breeding!  A wonderful female we produced, GreatMountain Willowemoc (aka Willow) produced five lovely pups with an incredible boy who also descends from our line, Callicoon Ukko.  Both dogs are free of seizures and have passing hips and eyes and are exceptionally talented working dogs with terrific temperaments.  The litter is due in early September, and pups will go to new homes in early November.   This litter will be born in NY.  If you have an interest in talking with us about this litter, contact us at contact@greatmountainchinooks.com.  Click here to view the pedigree for this litter.   If you're interested in talking to Maria Sommer, the breeder of the litter, about a pet puppy, complete her application by going to this link.

Associated Litter! We're pleased to be expecting a puppy back from Bashaba Chinooks next litter and are looking for a home to keep a male or female intact for breeding!  This is a truly exciting litter for us!  The GreatMountain crossline started with a single litter of two puppies, Trav'ler and Cedar.  While Trav'ler has generations of healthy pups making owners happy all over the country, we could not find a date for Cedar while he was alive (and he lived to 13!)  We have his semen stored and are thrilled that it will be used to attempt a breeding with Bashaba Sakari Dawn (Sakari).  Both dogs are free of seizures and have passing hips and eyes and are exceptionally talented working dogs with terrific temperaments.  The breeding is planned for later this year, with pups born over the winter.   This litter will be born in NJ.  If you have an interest in talking with us about this litter, contact us at contact@greatmountainchinooks.com.  Click here to view the pedigree for this litter.   If you're interested in talking to Karen Hinchy, the breeder of the litter, about a pet puppy, check out her website.

Note: this litter will produce 3rd generation crossbred dogs from a Chinook Owners Association approved crossline.  The dogs will not be purebred registered, but those who remain intact for breeding and go on to reproduce will produce purebred eligible offspring.  This is an incredible opportunity for folks to help improve the genetics and health of our breed.

We have several other breedings in development.  Check back here soon!


To potential puppy owners: Our pups will be available for placement when they reach 8 weeks of age. They will be appropriately socialized with other animals, children, adults and new environments. They will be temperament tested and evaluated for conformation to the breed standard. Click here to read about our conformation evaluations. They will be DNA-VIP. GreatMountain puppies also come with a one year membership to the Chinook Owners Association. All of our puppies are placed with contracts.  Because it is our goal to match the right puppy with the right home, we never make placement promises until we evaluate the personality of the puppy.  We chose placements for all puppies and do not allow owners to "pick" their pup.  This is a new concept to many dog owners, so we like to set it out up front so there will be no surprises!

Please read our kennel philosophy. Our goal in breeding is to produce healthy Chinooks with outstanding temperament, drive and conformation. A healthy, well-structured dog will serve you well whether you want a snuggly couch potato, a hiking companion, a competitive show dog or a recreational sled dog. Our dogs are all this and more and we look for studs who compliment each dog's unique strengths. 

If you have questions about whether a Chinook puppy is right for you, please read the FAQs on the Chinook Owners Association website before deciding on this breed.
