Bluetick Coonhounds are bred to be hunting dogs. They are athletic and hardy and need a full-time job or activity to stay happy. They are, like their hound counterparts, very intelligent breeds with an uncanny knack for problem-solving. Once trained, the breed is very mindful of its owner. If properly socialized, they can make a great family pet. Get acquainted with this dog off leash in one of our family run areas. Most dogs will need to run off some energy before they settle down and get acquainted with you. Thanks!
