BREED DETAILS

GENERAL
The Treeing Tennessee Brindle (TTB) is relatively a newly recognized breed of dog. Originating in USA, this brindled Cur breed was noticed in 1960s and efforts for its development started. These dogs have excellent abilities to tree and trail game. It is believed that the Plott Hounds and the Mountain Curs played an important role in the development of the breed. This breed is a variation of an American coonhound. However, the Treeing Tennessee Brindle is not as large as other coonhounds. These medium size dogs stand between 16-24 inches and weigh around 30-50 pounds. These dogs stand out from other breeds for their cat-like paws, distinctive bark and brindle coat. These dogs are exceptionally skilled at sending the prey up a tree and holding it there until the master arrives. With excellent scenting sense, this breed can sniff out all kind of game. This medium size breed comes with dome flat head, heavy muzzle, ears set high appearing short or medium, wide space between the dark colour eyes, back straight and strong, deep broad chest, and tail medium length and straight. The TTB has a dense and smooth coat that comes in mostly brindle colouring. This breed is NOT recognized by AKC or any other major kennel club however it is registered with AKC(FSS) since 1995.

COLOR
Most TTB dogs are brindle coloured but some are also seen in black with brindle trim. Small white on feet or chest is also acceptable.

COAT
The coat of TTB is short, soft and smooth.

PERSONALITY
Alert, intelligent, loving and friendly but most importantly very sensitive, the Treeing Tennessee Brindle needs extra care when handling. Once subjected to mistreatment, these dogs are known to be very difficult to trust the culprit again. These dogs are very friendly and sweet natured. They are very good with children and get along well with other dogs but these vivacious hunters should not be trusted around small, non-canine pets due to their propensity for hunting. During hunt, this dog is very vocal and 'sings' out when it is on a trail. The way this dog barks, is part of its standard. These dogs make very good watchdogs with their alert nature but despite intimidating appearance, they do not make very good guard dogs due to their very friendly nature. With proper training, these bold, self-assured and curious dogs make excellent companion, family and watchdogs.

CARE
The grooming requirements are minimal for this short-coated breed. Occasional brushing will keep the coat free of dead hair and in top condition. These dogs need extra care when training. They are ultra sensitive dogs. Should Treeing Tennessee Brindles be exposed to abuse and neglect, their spirits will be broken and cannot be mended. They should be handled gently and positive reinforcement training methods should be used.

TRAINING
Only positive training methods should be employed with this dog. Under no circumstances, the dog should be subjected to harsh treatment. It is a very friendly and amenable dog that will bring its best out through gentle and positive training methods.

ACTIVITY
The TTB is an active and lively breed and will need to be taken for daily walks. This breed should also be provided with ample playing time.
