Considered to be an American Breed, the Black and Tan Coonhound originated during the 1700s. This scent hound is a talented hunter of raccoon, opossum, bear, wild boar, and cougar. They are able to hunt in any type of weather and terrain. In 1945, this breed became one of only six varieties of coonhound to be recognized by the American Kennel Club. There are two types of Black and Tan Coonhound: Show and Field.
The Black and Tan Coonhound is powerful, large, and hard-working. Individuals of this breed have their own distinct and unique howl that is easily identifiable by their owner. They are solidly built and possess remarkable stamina and tenacity. They are considered to have the most highly developed sense of smell in the canine world.

Does your Black and Tan Coonhound bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
This breed is highly intelligent, loyal, obedient, and quite adept at problem solving. The Black and Tan Coonhound is extremely alert, eager, and dedicated to their work. They are outgoing, good-natured, and friendly. They do best in a home with older considerate children. This breed typically gets along well with other dogs but is not recommended for a home with cats or other small household pets. They have a tendency to howl excessively if left alone for extended periods of time. This breed is reserved with strangers but is not generally aggressive.
The Black and Tan Coonhound requires weekly brushing to minimize loose hair. Bathing or dry shampooing should be done when necessary. The long ears must be checked and cleaned on a regular basis to prevent infection. Black and Tan Coonhounds have a tendency to drool so regular wiping of the face is recommended. They may be prone to such health issues as hip dysplasia, ear cankers, PRA, and Hemophilia B.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
The coat of the Black and Tan Coonhound is short, sleek, and dense. The color of the coat, as the name implies, is black with tan markings on the muzzle, chest, and legs. Puppies are born solid black. The tan markings develop when the puppies are a few weeks old. This breed is a continuous shedder.
This breed requires early socialization and obedience with special emphasis placed on recall. The Black and Tan Coonhound may be willful and stubborn due to their ability of independent thought. They do not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with respect, firmness, fairness, patience, and consistency. They display talent in agility, tracking, and hunting. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Black and Tan Coonhound puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
An energetic and boisterous breed, the Black and Tan Coonhound needs daily vigorous exercise and stimulation. They enjoy securely leashed walks and make excellent jogging and hiking companions. This breed is not recommended for apartment or city dwelling. They do best in a secluded rural setting where they can safely romp and roam freely or in a home with a large securely fenced yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

I have a mutt the vet said was a shepherd mix, but my dog is very much a hound in the way she sniffs the ground and her body build. Her colors are like the black and tan with the spots over her eyes. How do I determine what she is?

Most shelters/rescues/vets will say a German Shepherd is mixed in with a mixed breed of dog because the German Shepherd is so popular and there are so many mixes out there that look like they have Shepherd in them. If you want to know what breeds are in your dog, do a DNA test on her. You can buy them online or at your vet. You will swab her cheek with two swabs, send them in and in a little while you'll get a DNA certificate with what your dog is mixed with. Depending on the DNA test you pick will determine if you only go 4 or even up to 7 generations back.

I purchased a black and tan coonhound yesterday. She is UKC registered and both of her parents are used as hunting dogs. My concern is that she seems very small for her age (almost 9 weeks). Almost looks maybe 5-6 weeks instead of 9. My last dog was a full blood redbone and she was huge at only 8 weeks. Should I be concerned?

Every dog is different. If the mother didn't get as much nutrition as she should have when she was pregnant, or if there was a large litter and your pup didn't get as much milk, that could factor in her small stature. But if your vet is not worried, I wouldn't worry. Feed her a high quality grain-free puppy food and make sure you take lots of picture's, she'll grow up fast!

I have a ten-week old black and tan who every once in awhile goes kinda stiff and chomps at foam... I have a ten-week old black and tan who every once in awhile goes kinda stiff and chomps at foam coming out his mouth and he empties his bowels uncontrollably. After he defecates (it's not runny) he gets really hyper and runs for a min or two then he's normal. No changes in appetite or energy. The vet said to just watch him but he did it again this morning and the vets closed.

Your dog may be experiencing epileptic seizures and perhaps you should seek an examination from another vet.
