Black and Tan Coonhound by Linda Hibbard
Book DescriptionThis Comprehensive Owner's Guide to the Black and Tan Coonhound serves as a complete introduction specialized hunting companion. The Black and Tan Coonhound, named for its signature coat coloration and the quarry for which it was designed, possesses trailing and treeing instincts beyond compare. The history chapter traces the breed's development in the United States, from ancient European hounds, to pursue raccoon and other quarry. The breed's characteristics key to its hunting prowess, discussed in chapter two, include the Black and Tan's legendary nose, long, flowing ears (to capture scent), and characteristic bawl (to hold quarry at bay and communicate with human hunters). New owners will welcome the well-prepared chapter on finding a breeder and selecting a healthy, sound puppy. Chapters on puppy-proofing the home and yard, purchasing the right supplies for the puppy as well as house-training, feeding, and grooming are brimming with detail and illustrated with handsome adults and puppies. In all, there are over 135 photographs in this compact, useful, and reliable volume. The author's advice on obedience training will help readers better mold and train their dogs into the most socialized, well-mannered good canine citizens. The extensive chapter on healthcare provides accurate information on selecting a qualified veterinarian, vaccinations, parasites, infectious diseases, and more. Further chapters on caring for the aging dog and handling behavior issues (separation anxiety, barking, digging, etc.) conclude the volume. Sidebars throughout the text offer helpful hints, covering topics as diverse as vaccines, toxic plants, first aid, crate training, carsickness, fussy eaters, and more. Fully indexed.
