Redbone Coonhound

Redbone Coonhound The Redbone Coonhound breed is an active one that was developed in the US for hunting and is therefore unknown internationally. They make excellent housepets, with special considerations. The Redbone Coonhound's Behavior Source: Wikipedia. Recommended for: pet, hunting dog The Redbone Coonhound dog breed can drool a lot and has a very doggy smell. This being said, an owner should really like dogs if he or she is to get one. Being hunting dogs, they are naturally intelligent and energetic. Their intelligence gives them the ability to solve problems and this can include getting past a fence or getting into a garage. Being energetic, they need to be exercised and trained while still young to avoid destructive behavior such as chewing or baying. They are known to have very loud voices for barking. They are affectionate with their families and can be content to be just with them, whether it is participating in an outdoor activity or just sitting around. This can lead to inactivity if they remain indoors and thus lead to being overweight. Redbone Coonhounds require close supervision if off the leash as they have the tendency to chase smaller animals such as cats. Remember that breed only provides a general clue as to any individual dog's actual behavior. Make sure to get to know dogs well before bringing them into your home.
