Our 61st year!
The Perry Greene Kennel is celebrating its 61st year in Waldoboro. In January 1947 Perry Greene a renowned Maine guide and breeder of Chinook dogs completed construction of a log home and kennel for the Chinooks. During February, 1941 Perry and his stepson, Johnny Gephart and seven Chinooks (Walden's trained team) hauled 800-pounds of equipment via dog sled from Fort Kent to Kittery, Maine. They traveled 502 miles in ninety hours, the longest sled dog trek ever made entirely within the United States at the time.
The Chinook breed is most famous for their trip with Commander Richard Byrd to Antarctica. The Chinooks pulled heavy loads over long distances and are praised by Byrd in his book, Little America.
There is a monument on the property in memory of Perry & Honey Greene, behind this monument is a private cemetery where many Chinooks from Greene's time are buried. To some visitors it brings tears to their eyes and memories of an era gone by, memories of the Chinooks importance during the age of exploration. Memories of “Maine's own breed of dog”, the Chinook.
Today the Perry Greene kennel is primarily a boarding kennel but still breeds Perry Greene's beloved Chinook dogs. The kennel, store and original home have been restored by Rick Skoglund and Martha Kalina. There is a small display of the history of the Chinook breed in the store. The Perry Greene Kennel and Outfitters has a variety of equipment to out fit dogs such as skijoring equipment, Wenaha dog packs and Maine made dogsleds.
The Perry Greene Kennel will kick off their 65th anniversary by co sponsoring a winter carnival in Tamworth, NH birthplace of the Chinook breed, on February 9th.
