Hey guys, My girlfriend and I are currently in the selection process of getting a pooch. We do live in an apartment, and unfortunately, we cannot have certain breeds do to a banned breeds list, which both of our first choices, so the search is on. I've been looking into and researching hounds a bit, and I really like them, they seem like great dogs. My top two choices at this moment are the Redbone Coonhound, and a Treeing Walker. I've never owned a hound and admittedly do not know quite what to expect. I've seen some stories online of people saying they are excellent dogs but not if you're not diligent with them. Overall I'd just really like to know if this sounds like a disaster in an apartment environment or if it is workable. We're both very active and the dog would get it's exercise. I am just concerned with the barking/baying/etc in the house, there is nothing I hate more than people's dogs who just bark and won't shut up. As such, I do not want to do that to other people. We are on the top floor, so I feel that's the best place for least disturbance of other people, but still something I'm keeping in mind. I'm unsure if we are going the puppy route, or an adult rescue. If a puppy, I do plan on teaching it to hunt. All in all, I'm just looking for some general info, and experiences, about these breeds if you guys have any. What should I expect? Thanks in advance.
