  1. Help! Unsure of breed - Lab, Coonhound, Pit???

    Dog Breeds
    Hi, We adopted the sweetest one year old dog on Saturday. She was listed as a Lab Mix. Does she look like a Lab Pit Mix, Lab Coonhound Mix, or maybe all three? She weighs about 65 pounds, rarely barks, very chill loves to lay around, has been great with adults and children.
  2. Howling Coonhound in Delight. Humans fail to the good nature.

    Help. . . howling dog in the dog park! Quick background. Black & Tan coonhound rescue of 1 year (~4 year old dog). Sweet as a can be, humans, dogs and cats. Loves people, loves dogs, ignores cats. When we drive to the off-leash dog park, she begins howling in delight. With other dogs, she...
  3. 1.5 yr old with housebreaking issue

    :confused: I am looking to see if you would be able to provide me with some training advice. To give you my story, I apologize because it is quite long but it explains the issue. My house (just me and my sister) recently rescued a dog. A beautiful 1 and a half year hold redtick coonhound named...
  4. Learning to "Big Brother"

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have decided to track our families journey through puppyhood. From Trucker learning to big brother, to Galileo learning how to live in a world that has 2 dogs, to us as new puppy parents stumbling our way through, to Ranger learning all there is to learn as she grows up.
  5. Incredibly scared rescue dog - advice?

    Working Dogs
    Hi there - I just got a 9 month old red tick coon hound. He was found chained to a fence with his sister, was moved from Tennessee to NYC, lived in 1 foster home, and is now with me, separated from his sister. He refuses to go outside - we took him out this morning and he just tried to find...
  6. Is this a Treeing Walker Coonhound?

    Dog Breeds
    Hi all, I am new here, and I would greatly appreciate any help identifying my rescue dog. He is around 6-7 months and 55-60 pounds in these pictures. I am in Wisconsin, therefore coonhounds are fairly rare and humans with much hound expertise are even rarer. I knew nothing about them before...

    New Additions
    Hey everyone, My husband and I will be making an addition to our family - a female black and tan coonhound. She'll be coming home during the last week of April when she will be 8 weeks old. My husband and I both had dogs growing up - I grew up with a lab mix and my husband had a shepherd mix...
  8. Mini Photoshoot

    Dog Pictures and Videos
    I finally picked up my real camera (not my cellphone), I had been avoiding it after football season ended, and decided to do a mini photoshoot with Trucker. I think it went pretty okay for only lasting about 15 minutes.
  9. Rehome Black and Tan Coonhound Male

    Is there anyone who can give a Male Black and Tan Coonhound a good home? I am unable to keep him because I take care of my elderly mom and he is showing food aggression. He just needs activity and professional training. He is very sweet and lovable in every other way. If it were just me I...
  10. Coonhound Food Aggression? My dog bit me!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Hi, I am posting this about my dog Jethro who I adopted 2 years ago. He is a very sweet dog and a Full bred Black and Tan Coonhound and is of course nosey especially with food. We have been working on his counter surfing and food stealing with a spray water bottle and it seemed to be working...

    Dog Pictures and Videos
    I have decided to start Trucker his own picture thread. I am like a crazy new mom with the pictures of their baby so I wanted to be able to share a some of them. They really do document a lot of his progress.
  12. Treats for Training

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Since coming home Trucker has been slowing creeping up in weight, currently I am not worried about where he is at (a solid 61.2lbs) but if it continues it will be of a concern. We do quite a bit of training on commands every day, he loves it, I love it, it builds our bond. But about 50 % of the...
  13. My dog is an escape artist

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I adopted my Black and Tan Coonhound, Lucy, almost a month ago. My previous dog was a Blue Tick, so I feel like I am not a novice when it comes to coonhounds. However, Lucy has taken to digging furiously when we are not around and managing to escape (I'm just thankful she is microchipped!!)...
  14. Guesses on my dogs breed

    Dog Breeds
    Hi, I'm new here, but I thought I'd see if anyone had some educated guesses on my dogs breed. I adopted him from a rescue group here in south Louisiana and I'm very aware he is a mixed breed. They labeled him as a labmix, but that's pretty much what they were all referred to as. As of now he's 8...

  16. Does my dog sound like a lab/coonhound mix to you?

    Dog Breeds
    I adopted the sweetest dog, Morris, from a shelter about 6 months ago. He was listed as just a lab mix. The shelter didn't get his age right (they said he was 7-vet said no older than 4) so it's possible they didn't get his breed right but I think he's definitely part lab because he has a...

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a two year old Treeing Walker Coonhound. We recently moved from Florida to Rhode Island and are having some behavioral problems. She has had acts of aggression in the past, but since the move, the aggression is amplified, especially at night. Additionally, she has started exhibiting hyper...
  18. My Dog Can Barely Walk

    Dog Health
    This started over the weekend. Otherwise there were no obvious signs of this problem. Friday night I noticed by five year old Beagle/Coonhound mix was having some troubles walking. Now I know he has one claw on one of his hind legs that grows faster than the others and often bothers him, but we...
