Treeing Walker Coonhound
Poodle

The Treeing Walker Coonoodle is descended from two breeds that were both born to work. Although the personalities of the parent breeds are quite different, the Coonoodle will be very faithful, loyal and easily trained. It's possible that this breed may take on characteristics that mimic one parent over the other, so there are a variety of actual personalities that could come forth with this breed, but one this is for sure. He will make a wonderful companion. He will be very energetic, however, and will need a place to exercise frequently and vigorously. Keeping him cramped up indoors often isn't a good idea, so this breed is better suited for a home where he can be outdoors often.

Treeing Walker Coonoodle Breed History

The Poodle portion of this breed is believed to come from Germany, however they are very well known in France as most of their development took place there. They are known as a formal breed, with an elegant look, especially with the proper grooming techniques. Few realize, however, that Poodles were originally bred for work in such fields as retrieval of water fowl for hunters as well as herding. Dating back to at least the 1500's, they are often depicted in both art and literature. The Poodle quickly became a favorite in Spain and was also bred in miniature and toy sizes to be companion animals for Europe's Royal Court. You can find them in pieces of art by the likes of Goya and Durer. The Treeing Walker Coonhound descends from a variety of English hounds including the English Foxhound and English Coonhound. They were brought to Colonial America at the inception of the nation, where breeding began with a specific purpose in mind, to hunt and tree animals. Since the Treeing Walker Coonhound is a fairly new breed, you will not find them referenced a great deal in media or literature. However, they are quickly becoming a popular breed and were registered with the American Kennel Club in 2012 in the Hound Group.

Treeing Walker Coonoodle Breed Appearance

The Coonoodle can realistically take on the appearance of either parent dog. Very often, the coat and ears of the Poodle can easily be picked out, while color patterns can vary wildly. You'll also see a wide variety of facial features and expressions on this dog's face, as they can be very emotive. The snout of the Coonoodle, as well as the muzzle, will be medium to short in length and the teeth and jaws will be commensurate to the snout. Paws will match the overall build of the dog and the toes are usually webbed, as they are in both parents.

Treeing Walker Coonoodle Breed Maintenance

Your Coonoodle will need to be thoroughly brushed at least once a week, more often if outside play gives you a very dishevelled pet. The best time to do this during a cuddle session when your pet is relaxed. Many dogs learn to enjoy the grooming time, if given the chance to get accustomed to it when young. As well, brushing after each bath is key to keeping knots and mats our of your dog's fur. Bathing can take place every three weeks to every month, which again, can be more frequent if the need arises. Be careful to keep an eye on your Treeing Walker Coonoodle's skin as the Poodle parent may contribute a skin sensitivity. You don't have to worry about this breed drooling, as neither parent is prone to doing so. However, it is possible that they will shed, as Treeing Walkers do shed seasonally. Because of this factor, they cannot be classified as hypoallergenic, so be careful if allergies are a problem in your home.

Treeing Walker Coonoodle Temperament

You'll find the Treeing Walker Coonoodle to be very playful, active and ready to show loyalty to every member of the household. Since Poodles are sometimes known to be a bit mischievous, it's best to exercise caution when very small children attempt to play with the dog. While they mean to real harm, they can sometimes nip or pounce, which can cause fear and some injury if not supervised. This breed usually does well in a home with other dogs and animals, especially if introduced at the same time. Again, if the animals are not familiar with each other, make sure you stick around to make sure they're going to get along. Since both the Poodle and the Treeing Walker Coonhound were initially working dogs, you'll find that the Coonoodle will be easy to train. Make sure to give specific commands, make your desires well known and offer treats for a job well done.

Treeing Walker Coonoodle Activity Requirements

Since this hybrid is very energetic, you'll want to provide a place where they can get out and play for awhile. If you don't have access to a dog yard at a local park or your own yard is not fenced in, make sure to go for lengthy walks where this dog can get the recommended amount of exercise. Allowing the Treeing Walker Coonhound an off leash walk is not recommended due to the innate high prey drive that both the Coonhound and Poodle parents have. Apartment living is not the best, a home with a securely fenced yard is really the ideal environment for your dog.
