The breed is intelligent, confident and sociable with family and friends. Treeing Walkers are exceptionally smart, and if they are stimulated, they can learn anything. If nurtured correctly, a puppy will turn into a well-balanced dog who will enjoy a good jog around the neighborhood as well as a snooze on your bed. Treeing Walkers are extremely prey driven and should always be walked on a leash.
