Bluetick Coonhound Breed Maintenance
The Bluetick Coonhound is easy to maintain with occasional brushing of the coat to keep it shiny and clean, and a monthly bath or when needed will suffice. They are low droolers but may need the occasional face wipe to save the furniture or clothes. While friendly and devoted dogs, they do need to exercise daily to burn off their energy and do best on a leash so that they are not sidetracked by interesting smells. As they walk, they do love to stick their long thin snouts into everything. They are not good apartment dogs, as they need room to roam, but are well behaved indoors and just love hanging out with their owners. They respond well to training, although they can lose focus if an interesting scent takes their attention. Great with children, being a solid dog, they can be a bit rough with younger children (not intentionally, it is just their size and energy).
