LIMITED INFORMATION
Treeing Walker Coonhounds are great with children and get along well with other dogs. Like most
hounds, they are even-tempered and difficult to annoy or drive into aggression towards people or
other dogs. They are, however, energetic, and have a tendency to stand up on their hind legs to
pursue their curiosity about a young child or small dog that is picked up by a person, which can be
alarming to people that are fearful of dogs. It is highly unusual to see these dogs display aggression
towards other dogs or humans in particular. They can be highly focused and idiosyncratically
attracted to certain toys, locations, people, sounds, or objects. They love to nest and cuddle. Getting
a Walker hound out of a bed, off a couch or away from a fireplace will be a feat in itself. They love to
sleep after a long day, and are the perfect dogs for watching television. Generally easy to train with
little trouble, they make excellent pets if well exercised.

Training must be consistent, as Walker hounds are extremely intelligent and will take full advantage of
loopholes in the training regimen. These hounds have been known to use objects as levers/tools and
often manipulate their environment to accomplish a task (e.g., moving furniture to climb over gates,
using household objects to manipulate kennel mechanisms, etc.). They will attempt to steal attractive
items, and may maintain several caches of licit and illicit items.

Because they are eager to please, loving, intelligent and confident, they make a splendid companion
dog for an owner willing to give them proper exercise. Because this breed requires intense exercise to
match its energy levels, Walker hounds cannot settle for mere walks in the neighborhood.

Most Walker hounds are capable of scaling fences in excess of 6 feet (1.8 m), so a proper yard
system whether fence or electric fence is a must. They bury bones and dig if they are on scent. In
general, they are oblivious to commands when trailing a scent, much like a beagle or basset hound,
so it is imperative for a Walker hound to have serious training and a safe running area free of cars or
other potential dangers. They have strong tracking instincts, which is why they are popular as hunting
dogs. They can be quite adept at catching small rodents such as squirrels, roof rats, opossums, and
skunks. They are also known for their ability to tree raccoons, bobcats, cougars and bears when
hunting in packs of two or more. Carnivore researchers have had success using a single Walker and
handler team to locate Cougar-cached carcasses up to several months after the kill date.
