The Black and Tan Coonhound was the first coonhound breed recognized by AKC in 1945; it had been recognized by the United Kennel Club earlier. The Black and Tan Coonhound, like the other coonhound breeds recognized by AKC, was developed in the United States from foxhounds and other European hounds, including the Bloodhound and Talbot Hound assumed to be in the Black and Tan’s history. Four of the other coonhounds – the Bluetick, the Redbone, the American English, and the Treeing Walker – were developed using primarily colonial foxhounds. The Plott evolved from the German Hanover hounds brought here by the Plott family who used them with other local breeds to produce their breed.

All of the recognized coonhound breeds are on AKC’s low entry list, with the Black and Tan being the most popular. They are also seen in more areas of the country compared to the others, which are more often seen in the states of the old south. One of AKC’s coonhound events includes the competitive Nite Hunts in which the dogs trail and track natural game that has not been planted over varied terrains, including land and water, and in most any weather.

We found fifteen Black and Tan Coonhound experts to invite to contribute to a survey on their breed’s priorities. Fourteen agreed to participate. By the deadline, eleven returned surveys that had the lists ranked, and twelve ranked the outlines as well. The group has been in the breed for an average of thirty-one-and-a-half years. Those who judge have been doing so for an average of over fifteen years. All of the judges have judged specialties in their breed, and several have also judged their national specialty.
