Bluetick Coonhounds are gentle with children and loyal, loving pets, but they can be
challenging to train. They are the breed least likely to be aggressive to people, but they
should not be trusted around cats or other small animals. They are, like their hound
counterparts, very intelligent breeds, with an uncanny knack for problem-solving. This can
be particularly problematic if they are confined to a household or too small a yard, and one
should give this breed plenty of space. Once trained, the breed is very mindful of its owner.
Breed will drool occasionally. They are very loud, constant, and howling barkers. They are
bred to be working hunting dogs and can be a challenge to lazy pet owners.
In normal conditions the dog is excellent around families and children. Once trained, they
are mindful, friendly dogs. However, their noses will keep them in trouble, so food and
garbage should not ever be left out unattended. Often mistaken for aggressiveness, the
breed will "greet" strangers with its signature howl and will sniff the subject until satisfied.
Usually this is just the way the breed gets to know its subjects. Since Blueticks are driven
by their strong sense of smell, they make excellent hunting/tracking dogs. They will tree
any animal that is small and handle the best of the coon hound breeds.
