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.

My two year old male Treeing Walker likes to carry his tail in a loop a top his back. At times will let it hang but not very much. Kevin...

Your dog is holding his tail like his breed was meant too. Since this breed was bred to work in a pack; their tails having the white tip allow other dogs and the hunter to see them more clearly and easily. That is why the dog carries his tail in a loop a top of his back. When a dog lets his tail hang it just means that the dog is in a restful state and not stimulated. However, if the dog lets his tail hang for longer than a few hours at a time (more than 24 hours); then it may be time to have a vet visit. It could be that the dog is ill.
