Coonhounds have a very distinctive bay/bark. JD loves children and he gets along with other dogs (after he warms up to them). He is easy to train and picks up commands easily. He loves to use his nose to find ojects that we've given him to smell and then hide from him. And it takes him no time at all to track down anything that has been hidden.
Treeing Walker Coonhounds are primarily working and hunting dogs, but they can make great companion dogs. You just need to make sure that you keep them well trained and give them jobs.
This breed needs to work and be given jobs to do. They can become high-strung without enough mental and physical exercise.
This breed is intelligent, skilled and confident. They are very loving and like to have a lot of attention. They need to be socialized early or they can become skittish and fearful of new experiences.
This breed requires very little grooming and is extremely healthy.
