American English Coonhound Puppies

Feb 3 ·

The American English Coonhound is a purebred dog breed that’s part of the hound group. Also known as the English Coonhound or the Redtick Coonhound, this doggo was first developed in the 1700s in the United States. Initially bred for hunting and tracking, this breed is a great family companion dog today. For example, they’re sweet, mellow, and sociable.

Where to get American English Coonhound Puppies

You’ll be able to get this doggo anywhere you can adopt dogs. But, first, you can call your local animal shelter or breed rescue organization. They might have American English Coonhound puppies, adults, or seniors available for adoption. Most of these dogs have been surrendered or abandoned by their previous owners. So, it’s always a good idea to adopt and not to shop. Rory…

Alternatively, you can go through a reputable breeder. Luckily, this pup is purebred, so you’ll be able to find ethical breeders listed on the AKC Marketplace. You’ll be able to tell a good breeder from the rest because they’ll do the following:

  • Health screen and genetically test the parent before breeding to ensure it’s healthy and safe (and then get the puppies tested)
  • Have health documents and family tree history available for you to bring home upon adoption
  • Socialize and train the puppies as early as possible
  • Ensure the puppies are up to date with all of their vaccinations
  • Want to meet with you in person so you can get to know one another and you can meet the parents and the puppies

In addition, a good breeder will be able to answer all of your questions about anything. They’ll be open and honest about their breeding background, the litter, the adoption process, and more.

However, if you come across a breeder that doesn’t do the above, they might be a puppy mill or a backyard breeder. You’ll want to avoid these breeders since they don’t breed the dogs under healthy or safe conditions. In addition, they’re more interested in making a profit rather than finding the puppies good homes.

The Cost

The average cost of American English Coonhound puppies is anywhere between $800 and $2,000. The price may vary, depending on a few factors such as:

  • Location of the breeder
  • Popularity of the breed
  • Number of puppies in the litter
  • Time of year

For example, the more puppies there are in the litter, the lower the cost since there will be more puppies to go around. Coonhoundfriends…


The American English Coonhound is a medium-sized dog. For instance, they can grow to be about 23 to 26 inches tall. Males are usually on the taller end, while females are typically shorter. In addition, they can weigh between 45 and 65 pounds.

Also, they have a short and smooth coat. This doggo can come in various coat colors and markings, such as:

  • Black
  • Black & Tan
  • Blue
  • Brown
  • Red
  • Red & White
  • Tri-Colored
  • Ticked


There’s a lot to love about the American English Coonhound. While they’re not the most cuddly of dogs, this purebred is loyal and affectionate with its family members. Also, they love being around other dogs. In addition, they’re okay around young children and meeting new people. However, they need early socialization and training.

They can be stubborn when it comes to training, so you can hire a professional dog trainer to help you. Consistency is key in addition to positive reinforcement.

Finally, this dog breed has high energy levels. They need about 90 minutes of physical activity every day. They won’t do well living in an apartment and will need a bigger house with a fenced-in yard to call their own.

American English Coonhound Puppies – Veterinary Needs

Luckily, this dog breed is relatively healthy. However, they are prone to certain health issues, so you’ll want to bring them to the vet at least once a year for their annual checkup. On the other hand, for their first year, bring them more often. Then you and your vet can keep track of their growth and development and also keep them up to date with their vaccinations.

Some health problems you’ll want to watch out for are:

  • Hip Dysplasia
  • Elbow Dysplasia
  • Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA)
  • Bloat
  • Ear Infections

This dog breed has an average lifespan of about 11 to 12 years with proper care.


American English Coonhound puppies can eat anything that’s approved by your vet. Also, you want to make sure that the food is appropriate for their age, breed size, and weight.

So, you can provide your pup with high-quality kibble or canned wet food from a commercial dog food brand or homemade dog food. Gord…


When it comes to grooming, this doggo is low-maintenance. You don’t need to worry about bringing them to a professional grooming salon and you’ll only need to bathe them as needed at home. Also, they do shed a good amount, so weekly brushing is ideal.

Finally, you’ll want to keep up with trimming their nails, brushing their teeth, and cleaning their ears regularly.
