10 Things You Need To Know About The Black and Tan Coonhound.
Animal Planet The Black and Tan Coonhound is a breed of dog used primarily for trailing and treeing raccoons. It was developed from crosses between the Bloodhound and the Black and Tan Virginia Foxhound. The Black and Tan Coonhound runs its game entirely by scent.
Not the prototypical house dog, the Black and Tan Coonhound, nonetheless, makes an exemplary pet. It is mellow, amiable, calm, and unobtrusive indoors. Outdoors, its strong hunting instincts take over, and it can be difficult to turn it from a track after it starts trailing. As befitting a dog with its heritage, it is strong, independent, and stubborn. The Black and Tan Coonhound is gentle and tolerant with children, but it may be too independent to satisfy a playful child. It is reserved with strangers and in their presence may bay and howl. The Black and Tan Coonhound can run for miles although it is usually content with a moderate jog or long walk, with an occasional excursion into the field. It can wander if it catches a scent, so a safe area is mandatory.
