Sociability of the Treeing Walker Coonhound

Although the Treeing Walker Coonhound is a hunting dog, he has always been used to being around people and can therefore adapt to families. Because this breed is very trainable and intelligent, through their protective instinct they will protect everything that belongs to their “pack” or their family.

The dog loves to exercise, therefore being a hunting dog and later used for various dog sports, the Treeing Walker Coonhound loves to exercise. Therefore, fit people who have enough time to have long walks with their dog suit this breed of dog.

The dog is unsuitable for seniors if they are no longer fit enough for long walks. It is also important to keep in mind that you must have enough strength to hold the dog when it pulls on the leash, as the hunting instinct can kick in at any walk.

This dog will probably not get along so well with cats, since the hunting instinct will also kick in here. But even more so with children, since the Treeing Walker Coonhound is a very affectionate dog. But you should get him used to children because he has a lot of energy and might misunderstand things when playing.
