Treeing Walker Coonhound Question

I am thinking of adopting a two year old Treeing Walker Coonhound female. She will get exercise from several daily walks; but no "free runs." Will that be enough? Also, do they bark a lot and is it like a beagle howl?

No they do not bark or as they call TWC barks, bay. They will only do it if they want something or if there upset or happy. TWCs also loved to be talked to as a note. Yes, make sure you have it on a leash though because like mine they just love to get curios and wonder around. You have to train it at a young age because I will tell you now they are stubborn!

We have a 7 month old TWC and I have taken him to a local running/walking trail since he was 4 mos old. For the first month, I took him along the same 1 mile path each day, then one day I let him off the leash. He always stays within about 20-30 yds of me (because he's smart but also a big baby) but he really thrives on this daily walk. He prances through the woods joyfully, interacts with ohter dogs and really gets a good run going. When he knows we're going, he bays like crazy! So, if you can find a spot, get her familiar with it, then let her go...she will love it!
