Treeing Tennessee Brindle Breed of Dog:

The Treeing Tennessee brindle dog is one of the newer breed of canines that originated in the United States of America and has been known to have developed only as recently as the last 50 or so years.

The canines were originally bred primarily for treeing and hunting. When trained appropriately, the breed is also known to be very good watch dogs – as a result of its high levels of alertness, but are not efficient guard dogs as they are extremely friendly even to complete strangers.

The Treeing Tennessee brindle dog is a much smaller canine than when compared to any other coonhounds and possess cat like paws with small ears and a brindle colored body. The Treeing Tennessee brindle dog is a very good companion during a hunt and is extremely quick, brave and attentive – qualities that any hunter would love to have in a hunting dog.

It is essential though that the animal is constantly shown a significant amount of love and attention or else it will lose its spirit and love for the hunt. When picking out a Treeing Tennessee brindle puppy, the best traits to look for in the puppy include happiness, boldness, confidence and inquisitiveness. While allowing Treeing Tennessee brindle puppies to freely socialize will encourage much better social bonding, their extremely friendly nature will allow them to do so at a later stage as well. Due to its hunting heritage and instincts, the animal will require some amount of space to get the right amount of exercise over the course of the day. As a result, keeping the animal in a small apartment space may not be in the dog’s best interest. In fact, even a house with a small yard may prove to be too insufficient for the animal.

Treeing Tennessee brindle dog training is a rather simple process because of their high levels of intelligence. However, it is essential that the training be imparted with consistent loving reinforcement as, if the animal feels any unjust harshness being aimed at it, it will never trust the individual that had abused it. The animals are emotionally very sensitive and should be treated so. Since the animal has a short, smooth coat, no substantial amounts of grooming are required. However, a regular brush down or bath is required to get rid of any dirt or debris that has started to cling to the animal’s coat.
