Overview
Originating in Louisiana, the Bluetick Coonhounds ancestry can be traced back to the Bleu Gascogne French hounds. A born hunter, this breed excelled in tracking and treeing raccoon, opossum, bear, and cougar. They are able to perform their hunting duties in any weather and terrain. Bluetick Coonhounds are most noted for their cold nose that gives them the capability of tracking very old scents.
Character
The Bluetick Coonhound is heavily muscled, large, and powerful. This breed is a combination of agility, great endurance, kindness, and self-confidence. They are intelligent and have a highly developed sense of smell. They have exceptional eyesight that gives them the capability of being a proficient hunter at night.

Does your Bluetick 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.
Temperament
This breed is loyal, deeply devoted, attentive, and fearless. The Bluetick Coonhound makes an excellent family companion and guardian. They do best in a home with older considerate children. They are reserved with strangers but are not typically aggressive. They get along with dogs they have been raised with but are not recommended for homes with cats or other small household pets. The Bluetick Coonhound will most generally howl excessively and be destructive if they become bored and lonely.
Care
This breed requires weekly brushing of the coat to minimize loose hair. Bathing or dry shampooing should be done when necessary. The ears must be checked and cleaned on a regular and consistent basis to prevent infection. The Bluetick Coonhound is a relatively healthy breed but may be prone to cataracts, hip dysplasia, and Krabbes disease.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Bluetick Coonhound has a dense, short, smooth, and glossy coat that is coarse in texture. The tri-color coat is quite unique. The base color is white with a heavy ticking of black hair, which gives it a speckled blue effect. There are tan markings over the eyes, chest, muzzle, lower legs, and feet. This breed is a continuous shedder.
Training
Early socialization and obedience are an absolute must for the Bluetick Coonhound. This breed does not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with motivation, patience, firmness, fairness, and consistency. They excel in hunting, agility, and tracking. 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 Bluetick Coonhound puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Bluetick Coonhound requires daily vigorous exercise. They thrive on human interaction and being given a job to do. This breed is not recommended for apartment or city dwelling. They do best in a rural secluded setting where they can romp and roam freely and safely 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.

How do I get my Bluetick Coonhound eats to stop smelling all the time?

In a short answer, you can't. If you do some research on the breed of dog you own, you'll see that the Bluetick Coonhound was created and bred for hunting. They are constantly smelling, sniffing, scenting, ect. And they always will throughout their entire life. However, if you are having trouble controlling your dog because of the dog scenting all the time; contacting a local positive reinforcement trainer to work with you and your dog is the best thing to do. You can then work on focusing cues and recall to keep your dog under control and safe at all times.

We live in Montana and have a fenced yard. Not very big. Our lot is a 1/3 acre. Directly behind our house (50 feet from our fence) are hiking/biking trails that we use. I fell in love with the bluetick personality and looks but I am worried about him: not being on a lot of acreage, not being able to hunt (we don't) and him chasing mountain lion scents. We have occasional sightings around our neighborhood. We also have 4 children. Could we raise a bluetick as a family dog and not a hunting dog? Thanks!

For the short answer, yes you can. You will want to focus on purchasing a show-breeders puppy compared to a working-breeders puppy. As the puppy will come from show lines, ie: calmer, with a lower prey drive. However, do not assume a lower prey drive as no prey drive. Your puppy/dog will want to check out all the scents and will alert your family to a mountain lion or any other predator. That is a good thing though, as you have 4 children and want to keep them safe. Make sure your fencing is secure and high enough for your puppy/dog not to escape. Also keep your puppy/dog on a leash when on outings. You can use a long-line so that your dog has more space to be 'off leash' but always safe. Even a fully, well trained Bluetick Coonhound will follow his/her nose. Get a solid recall on your dog and always keep him/her on leash or a long-line when not in a fully fenced area.

The Bluetick Coonhound should get its spots by the time the dog is 6 months old.

We got an 8 week old Bluetick hound pup on the 21st. He has had diarrhea twice today. Is this normal?

Diarrhea is not normal in general. However, since you just got your pup, stress could be the cause. But never the less, a trip to the vet is the best way to determine that nothing is wrong. If he is given a clean bill of health, go to your local grocery store and pick up a small can of Pureed Pumpkin. Not Pumpkin Pie Filling, just the normal Pureed Pumpkin, which should have nothing but water and pumpkin in it. Pumpkin puree is the Pepto-Bismol for dogs, it works for every stomach issue a dog could have such as vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. It is a life-saver and carpet-saver as well. I always have some frozen in little baggies and have a can on hand at all times for those unexpected times. But a vet visit should always be first on your list when something like this happens.

For a dog of this size, it can happen anytime between 6 months to 1 year. But the average time for a female's first heat for this size of dog is 6 - 8 months.
