Black and Tan Coonhounds are even-tempered, sociable and placid canines that must be able to work closely with other dogs. Some individuals may be a little reserved, but they are never shy or vicious. Aggression towards humans or other dogs is highly undesirable. Attentiveness, friendliness and ardor are well expressed in the head.

Black and Tan Coonhounds are first and foremost working dogs, trained to track raccoons on the ground by scent, forcing them to take refuge in the trees. Dogs of this American breed are not only up to the rigors of winter and summer, they can also handle the most difficult of terrain. Their aptitudes and courage also make them well suited to tracking deer, bears, pumas and other large game. The breed club in the United States asks judges to give plenty of consideration to their skills when assessing individuals.
