Special Announcement
"Lake Haven Loves Coonhounds"

Do something to help!

If you have visited us often you might have noticed that we love coonhounds. This was not always the case until a few came our way and we started working with them. We now know that:

(1) They are sweet, sensitive companions similar to many of the other popular hunting breeds like retrievers and pointers. Coonhounds are guaranteed to make you laugh with their silly personalities and sense of humor.

(2) They are an American original. Born, bred and developed in the USA!

(3) Most are not aggressive seekers of attention so a gentle hand on their backs or a stroke to their soft ears quickly leads to melting contentment.

(4) Grooming doesn’t get much easier! A quick swipe over their short, slick coats, nail trim and ear clean will put the polish to a hound.

(5) Most hounds over two years old have a great on/off switch. Full of energy and ready to rock when a job is at hand, then content to laze on the porch or dog bed for hours when it's quiet time.

(6) Coonhounds rarely “borrow trouble”. While they are far from innocent if an opportunity presents itself, they won’t invent or create problems.

(7) Bred and selected to be workers, they have few congenital issues or problems that show up in dogs bred for a particular “look”.

(8) Kid-friendly and dog-friendly! Many hounds were bred to hunt in packs, so they have great social skills for the dog park or in your home.

(9) Soulful brown eyes to drown in and long silky ears to adore.

(10) Stripes and speckles, spots and solids, reds, blues, tan, black, white, colors galore!
