Treeing Walker Coonhound Breed Maintenance
A Treeing Walker Coonhound needs his owner’s companionship. The breed’s hunting instinct can be channel into tracking, field trials or search and rescue. His endurance and determination also make him a great hiking partner. His short and smooth coat needs to be brushed weekly to remove dead hair and in addition, monthly bathing will help with his musky smell. His ears should be checked weekly for wax build up, irritation or mites. The veterinarian can recommend an ear wash to use for the breed’s pendulous ears. Brushing the dog’s teeth once a week can help prevent tartar buildup and gum disease. His nails may need to be trimmed once per month. This breed is not good for apartment living as the space may be too confined. The Treeing Walker Coonhound is meant to have a large yard in which to run, play and explore.
