Overview
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.
Character
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.
Temperament
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.
Care
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.
Coat
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.
Training
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.
Activity
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Black and Tan Coonhound puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

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). She is tiny! 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 comin out his mouth and he emptys his bowels uncontrollably. After he deficates (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. Any input would be appreciated.

Every dog is different and if your vet suspects him to be a Black and Tan Coonhound, and you want to know, the best thing to do is to have a DNA test done. They can be found online for an average price of $45.00 - $85.00. The weight is quite typical, but because you are the only one able to see the pup, it is unclear if the pup is over weight or not.

Black and Tan Coonhounds are wonderful family dogs. I've had two in my life and they both were females. They both loved kitties & cats. The only down fall is the long ears need to be cleaned every couple days. They get yeast & bacteria infections in their ears if you dont stay on top of it.

Is the Black and Tan Coonhound a family dog? Do they tend to bark aalot?

If your family is into hunting a coonhound will be great, but they should just become reliant on the main hunter for food and comfort. Just as a pet a coonhound would not work out that good unless you are out in the country where the dog can run and bark as much as it wants.

Coonhounds are great family dogs. Like any dog, you need to train them. And they do need a fair amount of exercise. I live in suburbia and have two, and I don't hunt. I have a big backyard with a high fence that cannot be climbed (important!) and we go for long walks twice a day. They run in the yard, chase rabbits, and tree squirrels. But mostly, they sleep on the furniture. Oh yes, they are quite loud! You cannot have one in an apartment or your neighbors will hate you!

Yes coonhound's can have a gene fault where they have some white. Usually a patch of white on chest, chin, belly, or places where its not that noticable.

My better half just brought home a dog from a person she works with who said she had a Beagle... My better half just brought home a dog from a person she works with who said she had a Beagle she wanted to get rid of. Well it turned out to be a black and tan coonhound. The only problem is she 11 months old and only 19 inches tall. I am thinking she is small for a coonhound. My question is how much bigger do you think she will get. I have four other dogs and she gets along great with them. We have an Akita mix they weighs over 100 pounds so we really don't care but we were just wondering if she could still get to the size of the breed standard.Thanks.

Well if your coonhound is 11 months old, she most likely will not get any taller. At the age of 2 she will be fully mature meaning filled out but not have grown in height.
