Coonhound Dog Types
Capable of hunting individually or as a pack, Coonhounds don’t actually catch their prey, but ‘tree’ them, forcing the prey up a tree from where they can be shot by hunters.
Scent Hounds and a ‘type’ of dog rather than a breed, Coonhounds are divided into several different and quite distinct breeds:
- Black and Tan Coonhound
- Bluetick Coonhound
- American English Redtick Coonhound
- Plott Hound
- Redbone Coonhound
- Treeing Walker Coonhound
You’ve got to ‘Hound’ it to those Americans. They don’t hold back when it comes to naming dog breeds!
By the way, we’re still looking for an image for this post. If you have a Coonhound and would be happy for your dog to feature on Dogipedia, please send us a photo using the form to the right.
