Introduction

Plott Hounds are beautiful and intelligent. They need activity and companionship to be happy, but these hounds were bred to hunt large game. They must have the need to track fulfilled in order to be comfortable being still. This is not a dog that can be without a fence nor can they be walked on a loose leash lest they follow the trail of an interesting smell. If you are not going to hunt them, consider a tracking club where you can walk and run on various terrains. Consistent training is necessary or their energy could come out as aggression. The unique characteristics of this fabulous breed can supply a multitude of ideas for a name.

Plott Hound Name Considerations

There are, quite frankly, a lot of things to consider when naming a Plott. Plott Hounds are not pretty. Their beautiful coloring is many variations of brindle, but they were not bred for appearance. They were bred for speed, stamina, and strength. Their personality is strong. Plotts are more than courageous, they are fearless. Bold, alert, loyal, protective and intelligent are all personality traits of a Plott. They are known to be a stubborn breed to train, but training is absolutely necessary.

 If Plott Hounds are not exercised they can be anxious because they are so energetic. These are great family dogs as long as they get the wiggles out. They can also be quite loud, so apartment living is not the dog's life for these guys. Some may have webbed toes, though this is not a dominant feature. It is that bit of information that can make a name truly unique to the breed. If they grow up with cats, they can deal with them as part of the pack. If left outside unattended with wild cats or any other wild animal, they may tree or harm it. If you have a sense of adventure and like to go on tracking or hiking expeditions, that could be yet another name consideration.
