I don't own a bluetick coonhound, but I've had much experience with them at rescue. They tend to be extremely human friendly, and dog friendly. They slobber, they tend to bay a lot(cause they gotta let the world know how they feel!) and they are not the easiest dogs in the world to train, although individual dogs are easier to train than others. Bob, a bluetick coonhound at FOHA, knows sit and give paw, and I think he knows lay down as well. He's very cuddly and sweet, and loves water! Blueticks and coonhounds in general tend to love water! Young hounds (under 3) tend to be high energy and need to run! Coonhounds are also very, very silly.

And generally, coonhounds just love to have fun! Arooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

My experience with them has been that they're cute and smooshy and not terribly interested in following commands much. Pretty laid back dogs once they hit adulthood but fairly energetic as pups.

Again, this all depends on the lines behind the dog. If they are hunting/working lines, expect more energy/drive.

My Aunt had one years ago. He was pretty much as described above, a sweet lovable goof. I really wanted to take him home with me.

I think they are a very attractive looking dog too.

Thank you guys for giving me a little bit of personal experiences with meeting coonhounds in general.

Also, they tend to get along with other dogs right?

I have hounds already but they are of the smaller kind (beagles, bassets) Since they are so much smaller than the coonhounds I was wondering on how they act around other dogs that are smaller.

From what I know they tend to be pretty-laid back about a lot of things, other dogs included.

A Blue Tick Coon isn't a Foxhound.

And as far as temperament, they're as everyone above stated. Goofy, loveable, slobbery, a bit hard-headed, but typically get along great with other dogs and people. They have the personality of a beagle, which is generally out-going, and outspoken.

I love them. Down here we're full of blue tick hounds and red tick hounds. Red ticks are my fav. but you don't see them quite as often.
