Overview
An American breed originating in Georgia, the Redbone Coonhound was developed during the 1800's to hunt raccoon, boar, bobcat, and cougar. This breed became a favorite with farmers and huntsmen due to their agility, speed, and keen sense of smell. They are able to hunt over any type of terrain and in any weather. In addition to their hunting prowess, the Redbone Coonhound is an amiable companion.
Character
The Redbone Coonhound is a rugged, muscular, and robust breed. The paws are webbed which enables this breed to be proficient at swimming. They possess large expressive eyes, long floppy ears, and a proud demeanor. Redbone Coonhound's exhibit a striking and stunning appearance.

Does your Redbone 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
The Redbone Coonhound breed is loyal, affectionate, highly energetic, and free-spirited. They do well with children, however, caution should be taken with small children due to their exuberance. They do well with other dogs, but non-canine pets are not recommended because of their strong hunting instinct. The Redbone Coonhound is an even-tempered and good-natured family companion and an aggressive and fierce hunter. They do have a tendency to drool excessively and bark incessantly. They also have a strong "doggie" odor. This breed is not recommended for use as a watchdog as they do not know a stranger. They are sweet, friendly, enthusiastic, and reliable.
Care
Redbone Coonhound's require occasional brushing with a firm bristle brush. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. It is important to regularly check the ears and paws for debris. This breed has no known health issues.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The coat of the Redbone Coonhound is short, coarse, glossy, and smooth. The coat lays flat against the body. This breed is a light shedder.
Training
Basic obedience is recommended. The Redbone Coonhound breed is intelligent and eager to learn. Training must be done with fairness, firmness, and consistency. 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 Redbone 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 Redbone Coonhound is not recommended for apartment living. This breed requires an inordinate amount of exercise to be happy. They enjoy hunting, swimming, running, jogging, and family activities. Redbone Coonhound's do best in a rural setting or a large securely fenced yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

How big is your Redbone Coonhound? My boy is getting much larger than the 60 to 70 lb. average. I checked his weight on his 9-month birthday, and he was 88 pounds. No fat on him, huge shoulders and all muscle.

The standard for the Redbone Coonhound breed on a male should be no bigger than 80 lbs. This is the UKC and AKC breed Standards.

I would like to get a Redbone Coonhound, but was wondering how they do on a walk or in a park? Will they instinctively just take off if they smell a small animal? This is my concern. Also, how are they with children?

They are wonderful with children. I suggest getting one as an adult/senior if you are new to hounds. They are easier to train, walk, and play with. They are just as active as pups. They learn not to bolt. The dogs probably won't run after every smell. You should let them walk towards it occasionally to ease their curiosity.

I have a Redbone Coonhound who inhales food without chewing? is this safe or normal behavior?

If he / she is inhaling their food that might be a sign that the dog is not getting enough food. I usually feed my dogs two cups in the morning and in the afternoon for dinner. Hope this helps!

Go to your local pet store and pick up a 'slow eater bowl' for him to eat out of. It'll make him slow down and force him to chew his food.
