It is descended from England by way of mixed
breeding with the American Foxhound and became
an official breed in 1945 when admitted to
the American Kennel Club.
The Black and Tan Coonhound
is a noted tracker with an extremely sound
sense of scent that he uses to the best of
his ability to tree raccoon or other prey.

Temperament of the Dog
The Black and Tan Coonhound is
a noble, loyal breed that is very loving to their
families and usually other pets, with the exception
of small vermin like creatures i.e. rabbits, hamsters,
etc. They love to be part of a group so single owners
looking for a companion may not be the best match.
They are quite tolerant of children and lots of
activity and usually consider such as part of their
A quick-to-follow, intelligent,
loyal and good-natured hunter and companion, the
Black and Tan Coonhound pleases hunter and owner
alike. The Black and Tan is an alert and eager dog
who is very dedicated to his work. Some sources
say this passionate worker is a bit aggressive,
but will listen to his master. Other sources say
he is gentle and friendly with people.
Some individuals are protective
and are a bit reserved with strangers, but welcoming
after an initial period. Some Black and Tan tend
to be aggressive with other strange dogs.
Sometimes they can play rough.
This dog can be willful, requiring firm, patient
and on-going training. They may howl if they are
left alone too much. Do not let this breed off the
leash in an unsafe area, as they may take off after
an interesting scent.
This is a very vocal breed and
will express itself often with barking or baying
as a way to communicate a wish to you. This is a
pack characteristic and one that has been nurtured
to serve his owner in the field. While it may be
possible to train some of this trait out of the
dog, it will never fully be obedient to silence
and as an owner one should love and respect this
aspect of the breed.
While Black and Tan Coonhound
has many positive characteristics and is a superior
pet in many ways, it is not recommended that first
time dog owners begin with this breed. Their need
for space and expression of abilities needs to be
understood and appreciated by their owner. An owner
with knowledge of this breed is preferred or one
with previous pet experience at the least will be
best suited for Black and Tan Coonhound.
Better suited to an indoor or outdoor lifestyle?
A properly bred Black and Tan
Coonhound is a pack dog for the elements and would
rather be with canines or family outside whenever
possible. They can consider their family a pack
but a lifestyle indoors on a sofa is not for him.
A fenced yard is ideal for Black and Tan Coonhound;
this breed will totally ignore the warning and shock
of invisible fencing whenever there is a scent to
follow. Black and Tan Coonhound is definitely not
an urban or apartment breed.
Are they suited to homes with kids?
Black and Tan Coonhound is a great
breed for all ages of children. They may be a bit
rough in their play for the smallest of children
as they are a rambunctious dog at play. Otherwise
they are most loving and tolerant of children.
How Active is the Breed?
Indoors Black and Tan Coonhound
is relatively calm and sedate. Outdoors his sense
of smell is on and he is continuously active and
following his nose. In a safe enclosed yard this
can mean following the fence line looking for rabbits,
squirrel or other creatures that have come into
his territory. If he has the luxury to run free
in an open space i.e. farm or the like, he may track
well away from home and not return until ready.
Black and Tan Coonhound, because
of its instincts and heritage does not make a good
pet for those who want a pet to walk with. The breed’s
tendency to lunge and sway while tracking make them
more than a handful to handle for the average pet
How Much Exercise Does the Dog Need at
every stage of its Life?
As a puppy the Black and Tan Coonhound
will be happy with the usual toys and activities
that most puppies enjoy. After the first year, this
breed will become more interested in fully using
its nose to track giving him more than enough exercise
if allowed. If weight does not become an issue,
than Black and Tan Coonhound will remain an active
tracker even in his last years.
Regular bathing and brushing can
be accomplished by most owners at home if the weight
of the pet is not an inconvenience. A chamois cloth
will keep coat glossy.
Nails should be checked frequently
and trimmed. Since their nose is close to the ground
often the ears take some abuse from brush and should
be checked frequently for cuts or abrasions. Ticks
will hide in the ears and should be removed immediately
Hip Dysplasia can occur in Black
and Tan Coonhound but proper testing of parents
of future litters can help to reduce the occurrence.
They are a relatively healthy breed but keeping
weight in proper proportion will help joints as
