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.

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.

Why do Bluetick puppies growl?

All dog's growl. They do it to warn another puppy, animal or human that something is upsetting them, frightening them, or 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.
