Introduction

The Treeing Walker Coonhound was originally bred to hunt small game - squirrels, rabbits, and raccoons. This hound's particular hunting strength has to do with its knack for forcing prey into a tree. Because of this, the Treeing Walker Coonhound is highly adept at tracking and treeing bobcats, cougars (called mountain lions in some parts of the United States), and bears. Some hunters use his tracking ability to hunt deer; however, this varies from state to state (some do not legally allow this practice). He is also a keen scent dog, which makes him adept for other work outside of hunting. Choosing a name for this type of dog has plenty of options.

Treeing Walker Coonhound Dog Name Considerations

The Treeing Walker Coonhound often has names related to its hunting ability or personality. Some owners may wait a week or two before bestowing a name on their future hunting partner. Others may name their Coonhound after a beloved family member, a favorite hunting partner, or even after a television or movie character. Still, others may name their dog after musicians or other celebrities. Because the Treeing Walker Coonhound is chiefly considered a hunting dog, his name often has to do with the outdoors or the act of hunting itself. Names such as Chase and Dodger directly relate  to the hunting process. Other names, such as Bayou or River, are references to the great outdoors. 

Some Treeing Walker Coonhound owners like to give their dogs old-fashioned names such as Barney, Bert, or Archie. These names may also be the names of older men that the dog owner might have known. They could have been older male relatives or former hunting partners. Other Treeing Walker Coonhound enthusiasts may seek out a traditional name for their new hunting buddy. Clementine, Cletus, Billie, and Daisy are all names which have fallen out of use with humans but make notable dog names, particularly with dogs used for hunting, such as the Treeing Walker Coonhound.
