An avid, confident hunter, the Treeing Walker Coonhound lives up to his name as he was originally bred to track and tree raccoons. This powerful, athletic breed has a sharp nose, great speed and excellent stamina. Affectionate and loving, he also makes a good family companion. The Treeing Walker Coonhound should be vigorously exercised daily, and his smooth, glossy coat requires minimal grooming.
A descendant of the English Foxhound, the breed was initially classified as the English Coonhound. In 1945, the Treeing Walker Coonhound was recognized as a separate breed.
