< back to Dog Breeds A to Z
The Treeing Walker Coonhound breed has a short, clear bark and a passion for hunting. Some are shy, some are confident, but all are hounds, which means they need patient training and plenty of exercise. Although these are purebred dogs, you may find them in the care of shelters or rescue groups. Remember to adopt. With high energy and a habit of making noise, these puppies may not be a great choice for flat dwellers. They need a good amount of exercise and room to move around. People with large backyards may offer a more suitable home, provided the yard is well fenced. These dogs have hunting instincts and may choose to chase passing animals. Although Treeing Walker Coonhounds may vary in personality traits, they all need plenty of physical activity and an experienced handler to keep them happy and well behaved.
Descended from the English Foxhounds and formerly classified as an English Coonhound, the Treeing Walker earned its name by tracking game faster than other coonhounds and then treeing it until the hunter arrived. This classic tri-coloured hound has a strong build, a short, clear bark and a strong desire to hunt. His personality ranges from outgoing to shy to protective. Like any hound, the Treeing Walker requires patient and consistent training and plenty of daily exercise.
