Roscoe enjoys playing with other dogs. He loves to race about and get into wrestling tumbles.
He is good in the house, well, he will counter surf but he is a hound with a nose.
Nose work, barn hunt, lure coursing would be right up this boy’s alley! Compete in those and you are guaranteed some ribbons.
Information on coon hounds:
Personality: Easygoing, friendly, bright; mellow by the fireside, rugged and brave on the trail
Energy Level: Somewhat Active; Big, athletic hunters who work nights, need regular exercise between naps
Barking Level: Likes To Be Vocal
I would imagine Roscoe will be fine with children.
He is not so good with cats and birds and probably not small rodent pets either.
He is house and crate trained but will bark in his crate if he has to go potty, is bored or just doesn’t want to be in a crate. He will stop but he can be loud so apartment living may not be an option.
A fenced in yard is best for this boy, and maybe another playmate.
Participation in a doggy obedience class of your choice is expected.
This is important to build self-confidence, to learn new things, to build a bond with your new best friend, to teach him to be a good citizen and who knows, discover the wonderful world of dog sports!
Hounds can be joyful, annoying, full of fun, clever, persistent enough to drive you nuts, ready for an adventure and your very best friend ready to be at your side in an given moment.
