If your family is into hunting a coonhound will be great, but they should just become reliant on the main hunter for food and comfort. Just as a pet a coonhound would not work out that good unless you are out in the country where the dog can run and bark as much as it wants.

Coonhounds are great family dogs. Like any dog, you need to train them. And they do need a fair amount of exercise. I live in suburbia and have two, and I don't hunt. I have a big backyard with a high fence that cannot be climbed (important!) and we go for long walks twice a day. They run in the yard, chase rabbits, and tree squirrels. But mostly, they sleep on the furniture. Oh yes, they are quite loud! You cannot have one in an apartment or your neighbors will hate you!
