Bred in Alaska the Chinook was actually named after a sled dog. Well behaved and affectionate, the Chinook worked well in teams as sled dogs. Meaning 'warm wind' the Chinook lives up to its namesake as a dependable sled dog. Quick learners with strong shoulders, the Chinook had the endurance levels to work in teams delivering large quantities of supplied across the tundra. A team of Chinooks joined Admiral Byrd's expedition to Antarctica in 1928. Given the extreme conditions endured by sled dogs, quality dog food was most likely not a priority. Hunting scraps were most likely the basis of their diet. While not ideal for Chinooks with sensitive stomachs, the high protein diets more than likely were all that was available and provided sufficient energy for lengthy sledding trips.
