The energetic treeing walker coonhound is perfectly suited for the task for which it was bred – tracking and treeing wild raccoons. Developed from the Walker foxhound, the Virginia hounds, and the earliest English foxhounds brought to America, the treeing walker is a fast, alert, hot-nosed hunter with superb endurance, treeing ability and the desire to perform. It has a clear, ringing bugle voice or a steady clear chop with changeover at the tree. Today’s treeing walker retains the same color and similar conformation to the Walker foxhound. The breed is intelligent, confident and sociable.
