Black and Tan Coonhounds love to bay, howl and make excellent companions. These dogs are determined and very friendly and will get along well in most environments. While indoors, they can be calm, amiable and mellow but they are otherwise generally lively and active dogs outdoors, particularly when they find a scent. Black and Tans have strong instincts causing them to be independent and sometimes stubborn.
With long ears, the Black and Tan Coonhound is prone to ear infections and should have their ears checked regularly. These dogs are otherwise easy to care for and should have their coat brushed two or three times a week.
Black and Tan Coonhounds may be susceptible to eye problems including Progressive retinal atrophy. They can also be prone to elbow and hip dysplasia.
Even though the Black and Tan Coonhound does not require a lot of exercise, it is an extremely active breed. These dogs require a great deal of space and will be happiest with the chance to go on long distances walks or live on a farm.
It is best for Black and Tan Coonhounds to live with a family in a rural setting or a suburban home with ample space. They can be difficult to train as they are stubborn dogs at times.
