Overview
Originating in the United States, this hunting and working breed was developed in the 1800's. The Treeing Walker Coonhound is the most prominent of the walker hounds. Their distinctive melodic howl and ability to virtually climb a tree to get their prey makes them favored by walking hunters.
Character
Built for power and speed the Treeing Walker Coonhound has an over abundance of endurance and stamina. Their long ears and square muzzle give this breed a somewhat similar appearance to a Basset Hound. They are extremely agile and elegant in movement. This breed is a free spirit who thrives outdoors in any climate.
Temperament
The Treeing Walker Coonhound is highly skilled, intelligent, and courageous. First and foremost they are hunting and working dogs, and yet, they also make a terrific companion. They thrive on attention, are loving, and eager to please. They get along well with older children and other dogs. However, their instinct to hunt small or moving prey does not make them suitable for homes with cats or other small household pets. The Treeing Walker Coonhound is typically high-strung and exuberant. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time. Without attention and stimulation they will become bored and destructive.
Care
This breed requires minimal grooming and only needs to be combed and brushed occasionally. Bathing should only be done when necessary. It is important to keep their ears cleaned and checked regularly for any sign of infection. The Treeing Walker Coonhound is a relatively healthy breed. With their keen sense of smell and strong hunting instinct this breed will track with total abandon. This will often lead them into perilous danger.
Coat
The Treeing Walker Coonhound has a short, smooth, fine and glossy coat that is dense enough to provide protection. The coat is black, white, and tan, and may be bi-colored or tri-colored. Breeders and Show registries typically prefer the tri-color variation. This breed is a heavy shedder.
Training
The Treeing Walker Coonhound has a tendency to be stubborn, but is generally easy to train. Early socialization and obedience training is highly recommended. This breed does not respond to harshness or heavy-handed methods. Training must be done with patience, consistency, firmness, and fairness. They excel in coonhound field trials.
Activity
This breed is extremely energetic and requires an inordinate amount of exercise. The Treeing Coonhound is not recommended for apartment or city dwelling. They must be in a country setting or a home with a large securely fenced yard to give them ample opportunity to romp and run. They benefit from hunting and working with their master and family play sessions.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Treeing Walker 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.

There is not average weight or height for a Treeing Walker Coonhound pup. But if you are concerned, worried or curious, contact your breeder. He/She will be able to tell you if your dogs are in the normal range or not.

At what age does a Walker female have her first heat?

1 Comment

The average age would be between 6 - 8 months. But unless you are a reputable breeder or are under the study of one, you shouldn't be breeding. Breeding dogs is very dangerous for the dam, sire and the puppies. Unless your dog is of impeccable breeding, has passed all temperament and health checks and has titles in confirmation and/or has shown he/she is capable of doing what the breed was made for, the dog should be spayed/neutered.

He will jump on anyone if they enter our house and sometimes will bark at them if he does not know them. I can't have many people because of him. I am just asking if he will be like this for his whole life or is it just a puppy thing? Also, is it common for a TWC to think he is a lap dog?

I have a walker mix and she did the same. I learned to train her to have a different reaction when someone knocks. Now she runs to her treat spot (the kitchen hutch) and waits for the new person to come and give her a treat. We also got her the super KONG that has the + on it to put her treats in so they don't just vanish. She will bring it right to you.

Positive reinforcement is KEY! Put the pup on a leash and teach him to sit whenever someone walks in the house and make sure you as the owner are giving the treat, because that will reinforce that he needs to listen to you no matter the situation. He will learn quickly. Our TWC would jump on our niece which was unacceptable and we did this as the vet suggested and now the leash is no longer needed and she sits before the person is in the house. She still gets a treat though as she is being trained. This breed does not respond well to a harsh hand or loud voices rather clam, respecting voices with a positive reward at the end. Patience is required as it may take a bit of time.

i have a coonhound who gets in the trash is he fine?

My TWC gets in the trash every time there is meat packaging in there. They are scent hounds, after all! As long as there is nothing in there to get the dog sick,like really rancid meat, he'll be fine. If the can is inside, find somewhere outside to put it when you can't supervise. If it's an outside can, get one with a secure lid. You could also try sprinkling cayanne pepper on the top of the trash. It won't hurt the dog, but it will make your dog not like the can so much. Depending on the dog, it may take a while and you colud need to "remind" him every now and again. Better a runny nose than a runny back end!
