Overview
The English Coonhound breed descends from Irish and French breeds brought to America. They were utilized to hunt fox by day and raccoon by night. The original Coonhounds were inadequate when hunting by American standards due to their inability to track quarry in trees. Therefore, the original breed was crossed with the Bloodhound to enhance their scent tracking ability. Today English Coonhound's are used to track and hunt raccoon, oppossum, cougar, deer, boar, and bear.
Character
The English Coonhound is often described as a well-conditioned athlete. They move effortlessly and possess great endurance, vigor, and strength. This breed is capable of tremendous speed, is versatile, and highly competitive.
Temperament
Affectionate, assured, watchful, fearless, and loyal. The English Coonhound breed does best in packs rather than being the only dog. They get along with older, considerate children and other pets they have been raised with. The English Coonhound has a tendency to be high-strung, exuberant, and lively.

Regular brushing with a firm bristle brush is recommended. Bathing should only be done when absolutely necessary. It is important to regularly check the ears and paw pads for debris. English Coonhound's are prone to Hip Dysplasia.

What two dogs do you breed to get an English Coonhound? Is it a redbone to a bluetick or a walker dog to a bluetick?

An English Coonhound, like all Coonhounds, is a separate breed within a breed. Redbones are different than Blueticks. Black & Tans are different than Redbones. You don't cross any 2 to get one. They are all different. An English Coonhound is a purebred.

Not much. A bath once a month and a good comb out and brushing once a week will do it. Pretty low maintenance in the coat department

You do not have to mix any dogs to get an english coonhound. You can breed two blueticks or you can mix a bluetick and a redtick.

They are actually different breeds within the Coonhound breed. They all have different personality characteristics. You can mix and match to get different colors, but a Redtick (English Coonhound) is not the same as a Redbone, Walker, Plott, Cur, or Black & Tan. All different breeds, not just a color.

A nice long walk, allowing them to stop and sniff. Play chase and tag. Tug of war with toys.
