Black and Tan Coonhound
Black and Tan Coonhounds are friendly, easygoing, and athletic. They have a long nose, droopy velvety ears, and expressive dark eyes. True to a hound, they can bay and howl loud enough for the whole neighbourhood to hear. Their temperament is mellow calm, and they love being outdoors tracking, trailing, and running. Black and Tan Coonhounds can be headstrong and likes to have their own way, but with firm, consistent, patient training they are a well-mannered and faithful companion.
Common Health Conditions
- Check and clean your Coonhound’s long, graceful ears to help prevent ear infections.
- Hounds like to eat. Monitor your Black and Tan Coonhound's food intake so he doesn't develop obesity. Keep your Coonhound in good shape by measuring his food and feeding him twice a day rather than leaving food out all the time.
- Most dogs love to run and play outside. Many would fetch the ball for you for hours on end if given the chance. Often, they’re having so much fun, they don’t realize they could be damaging their paws.
