American English Coonhounds tend to be quiet in the house, and require moderate exercise. English
Coonhounds love to nest and usually make good house pets. They have a high prey drive, and will go after
small animals unless trained otherwise. Because of this, they are not usually not recommended for households
with small pets unless they have been raised around small animals. They are generally good with children and
tend to be very loyal dogs that feel the need to please their owners. Like most puppies they can be quite
inquisitive and destructive therefore needed training early on is highly recommended.

Like all coonhounds, English are generally good natured and very sociable dogs. Skittishness or aggression is
considered a defect according to UKC breed standards. They are strong willed, if not stubborn, and require
more patience in training than other breeds. Young dogs are usually extremely active and playful and desirous
of human attention in addition to requiring plenty of exercise. English Coonhounds are incessant nesters and
should be avoided by people who do not wish to have dogs on couches and beds. They make excellent family
pets as they have been bred for hunting purposes to coexist amiably within a pack. English Coonhounds also
make adequate watch dogs as they possess extremely loud hound mouths characterized by melodious, drawn
out bawls and short, explosive chops.
