We have a 7mos treeing walker coonhound male, my hubby got him to train him to hunt. In Aug same month we got him my hubby was told he has possible MS which has caused him issues walking so he wont be trained. We decided to keep him as a family pet, we started having some issues where he would growel at the younger two kids, but did get some help with it. I decided to post on another dog message board about the issue in hopes to get some help. I was informed he is a bad dog would do it again, he has to be put down, he has to be rehomed, they are not made for family pets, he has to be outside. The trainer we are working with to help with the issue said it was due to the kids hitting him even after we have spoke to them not to, and the dog was just scared of the kids. If we give him positive praise and treat when he doesnt do it and do a stern NO when he does it along with removing him from the kids it would make it easier. Which yes it has worked a lot. My question is, are they good family pets or am I trying to keep a dog who wont be good with the kids or anything later on?
