Love my Coondog to death but he comes with his own set of challenges. First of which, I respect is the fact that the please me just to please gene is missing, he’s a free thinker. Totally food and “chase” motivated. I’m pretty sure that I could get him to wash my truck for a piece of cheese.
I walk him for 3 mi every morning (at almost a jog) cause he wakes me at 7:00 am on the dot just to go. When he’s not sleeping, it’s full on Bumpas hounds from A Christmas Story! I won’t even get into the deafening bark, nose on/brain off or the “hound odor”......yup, he’s work but keeper and a goof! I would like to hear the stories from others.
