Bluetick Coonhound

INTRODUCTION

Fast and muscular, the Bluetick Coonhound dog breed is noted for its striking coat. They have a pleasantly pleading expression and a large barking mouth, which means they have a long, drawn-out bark. Although a hunter first and foremost, the Bluetick can be a good companion dog and loves its people. Although these are purebred dogs, you may find them in the care of shelters or rescue groups. Remember to adopt. Don’t buy if you want to take a dog home. Dogs of this breed are very sensitive and affectionate. With proper socialization training, they will even get along well with the children in the house. However, with their high energy levels and exercise needs, they are not the best apartment pets. They need to be kept active with plenty of walks, playtime, and room to move around. Families with large homes would do well to fence off their yards, as these dogs can chase critters that wander through.

MORE ABOUT THIS BREED

These dogs have a noble history, as they are descendants of the French Grand Bleu de Gascogne and the English Foxhound, many of which were brought to the United States in colonial times. On the trail, the Bluetick may be slower than some of his coonhound compatriots, but he has a superior nose and a never-give-up attitude. Although he is a hunter first and foremost, the Bluetick can be a good companion dog and loves his people. Keep in mind that hounds are a challenge to train. Be patient and persistent to help them find their motivation, which is more likely to be food than any real desire to please.
