The Bluetick Coonhound is a passioniate hunter who is extremely alert and attentive.  It is very good working in all types of weather and conditions.  It gets along well with older children, and if socialized correctly will respond well to younger children.  It may be aggressive with other dogs and should be watched closely around non-canine pets.  They need a strong walk or run on a daily basis, and are probably not good for apartments, even when exercised.  Can be droolers.

We STRONGLY recommend that you get your dog from a respectable breeder or rescue organization.  Pet store puppies may get their dogs from Puppy Mills that normally breed only for profit, not quality or concern for the puppy or its eventual owner.
If you would like help locating a breeder or rescue agency near you please E-Mail PGAA (, and let us know your city/state and the type of dog you are looking for.  Do not assume that PGAA has qualified all of the breeders or rescues on this site.  Do your own check of each breeder or rescue — be sure that you are comfortable with the organization before you buy, adopt or turn-over a dog.
