Coonhounds can make great pets if you are willing to put in the work. Start recall and "no chasing things" training as soon as you get them home. This is a good self study workshop that can help with that. Fenzi Dog Sports Academy - WP540: Cars, Cats, and Kangaroos … DON’T CHASE THAT!! Just be aware that some dogs simply cannot ever be trusted off-lead outside of a safely controlled environment, no matter how much training they have.

Also, giving them an outlet for their innate hunting skills is important. Training them in tracking, blood tracking, shed hunting, or nosework are all good options. Nosework is probably the most accessible, since all you need to start with are some scented swabs, a tin to hold them, some boxes, food, and a puppy. This online class Fenzi Dog Sports Academy - N101S: NW101 - Introduction to Nosework starts August 1st, and enrollment opens today.
