Overview

The Redbone Coonhound is a medium to large-sized hunting dog that originated in the United States. They are a highly skilled and versatile breed that can track game through any terrain, from dense forests to swampy marshes.

Temperament

Redbone Coonhounds are known for their friendly and outgoing nature. They are excellent family pets and are great with children. They are also highly intelligent and trainable, but can be stubborn at times. They have a strong prey drive and should be trained from an early age to control their hunting instincts. Redbones are known for their distinctive "bay" or "bawl" when hunting, which can be quite loud and may not be suitable for apartment living.

Lifespan

The average lifespan of a Redbone Coonhound is 10-12 years.

Shedding

Redbones have a short, shiny coat that is relatively easy to maintain. They shed moderately year-round and may require weekly brushing to keep their coat looking healthy.

Puppy

When getting a Redbone Coonhound puppy, it is important to ensure that the breeder has done health testing to rule out any genetic health issues. They should be socialized from an early age to prevent any aggressive or fearful behavior.

The Redbone Coonhound is an affectionate and loyal breed that makes an excellent hunting companion and family pet for active households.
