The Black and Tan Coonhound is a breed of dog bred to hunt raccoon. They are also widely used for hunting bear and cougar.


The breed standard for Black & Tan Coonhounds is as follows:

  • Eyes are hazel to brown
  • Ears extend past the tip of the nose
  • Their black and tan markings are similar to the Doberman Pinscher and the Rottweiler but have key distinguishing differences from these breeds. The most prominent are the long tails and ears, and their loud, baying bark.
  • 23 to 27 inches (58 to 68 cm) at the shoulder
  • 8 to 10 inches (20 to 25 cm) head (back of skull to tip of nose)
  • 65 to 100 (29 to 45 kg) pounds
  • Males are typically larger and heavier boned than females.


In 1945, the Black & Tan became the only one of the six varieties of Coonhound to be recognized in the Hound Group by the American Kennel Club. The Redbone Coonhound and the Plott Hound have since been recognized in the Miscellaneous Class. The other three varieties of Coonhound are the Bluetick Coonhound, the English Coonhound, and the Treeing Walker Coonhound.
