An Active, Affectionate Companion Dog  -  Redbone Coonhound

The Redbone Coonhound is very affectionate and loves to be around kids and family members, however, they do require some exercise. If you can provide them about an hour of exercise a day, you will have a very affectionate and friendly family pet. The Redbone Coonhound was welcomed in the AKC in 2009.

The Redbone Coonhound is known for the red color of the coat and a pleading expression. This dog is well suited for country and suburban settings. It does adapt to apartment and urban settings, provided that exercise needs are addressed on a daily basis. The breed was bread to be a hunter of coons, bears, and boars, so they like to run and travel. Being hunting hounds they also like to bark or bay and will do so willingly. While this is ideal for the field and hunting, this may not be popular with your neighbors. Typically the dog wants about an hour to an hour and half of walking per day. They will do well in a larger fenced yard. The fence should be tall - about 6 feet to prevent the dog from getting out and wandering. The Redbone Coonhound is clever and does have the ability to problem solve. This can include solving how to get out of the backyard fence or get into the neighbors garbage! The intelligence of the breed and the desire to please people allows the dog to be trained well and relatively easily. It is a sensitive dog though and harsh training techniques do not work well.

The Redbone Coonhound is a healthy and fit breed, typically living for 10 to 12 years. They are a moderate sized dog - standing about 2 feet tall and weighing about 45 to 70 pounds. The body is typically lean and muscular allowing it to track game for hours. There do not seem to be any common health problems with the breed, however, the ears flop over so it is best to check these occasionally for debris and mites. Also, they typically take a couple years to fully mature, so you should be ready to have some "puppy playfulness' for a period of about 2 years. They enjoy people so much that they can inadvertently knock over children or elderly adults that may be unsteady on their feet. The Redone Coonhound likes to play and may not realize its own strength. They also like water and are capable swimmers, often compared to the Labrador Retriever in swimming ability. This means they could join in the pool fun with the rest of the family. This breed s is not one to be left alone for long periods of time - it does best with some daily interaction and play with the family. They will readily learn to play fetch and this is a good way to exercise the dog.

The coat of the Redbone Coonhound is short and smooth. This allows it to be brushed a couple times a week. The dog will shed and is not considered hypoallergenic. Grooming requirements are very low, brushing, trimming nails, and an occasionally bath are all that are needed. This is a great trade off, because of the exercise requirements of the animal. Redbones tolerate heat and cold about equally - they would rather be in the comfort of the house with the family!

The Redbone Coonhound is very affectionate, loves people, and can be a great pet for more suburban areas where it can have a larger yard for exercise and play. Grooming requirements are minimal, allowing you to have time to exercise the dog. Grooming products can be obtained at Dog Grooming Tables Plus. The is an intelligent problem solver and can thus be trained relatively easily.
