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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Bluetick 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.

When does the first heat cycle happen?

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

Any color other than a solid can be registered as an English Hound. I raised World Champion and Grand Champion Blueticks as well as numerous Nite and Grand Nite Champions. Although it can be done..Blueticks should remain a pure line..just my opinion

why do bluetick puppies growl

1 Comment

Anonymous

All dog's growl. They do it to warn another puppy, animal or human that something is upsetting them, frightening them, threatening them. Puppies learn their manner's/behavior's from their mother and other siblings. So puppies will growl at each other and different things when they are young to test out what reactions they get.

Both breeds are quite close in height, so they should be on average with the two breeds. But weight will differ depending on if the dog takes after the Basset Hound or the Australian Cattle Dog.

our vet said that bluetick females do not get spayed. Why?

Whatever vet you have is an idiot. I would seriously suggest going to another vet right away. All female dogs can be spayed and unless they are of top quality physically standard and temperament wise, they should be spayed.

I have a cat, and a 7 month old akita. i was thinking about bringing in another home companion for our akita, because he gets restless when we aren't home. how will a blue tick respond being raised around a bear and something he would consider "prey'?

I would not suggest a bluetick for a home with a cat...unless you are willing to run the chance of getting rid of the cat. Blue ticks are born "treers". They get along great with other dogs but he might view your cat as prey. The cat will probably run, triggering the natural instinct to tree it. I HAVE seen blueticks that get along with cats, so it CAN be done; However in my opinion it is rare.

most medium dog breeds go into heat twice a year. to reduce the possibility of uterine cancer it is suggested that you get you pet fixed before its first heat. A normal heat can last anywhere from 12 to 20 days
