Our beloved "long-eared" dogs
Coonhounds and foxhounds are sweet on kids, easy with other dogs, and they are sensitive and social - real people pleasers. Read more about pet coonhounds on this web site. We want to share our love of coonhounds with the whole continent, with hopes of inspiring dog lovers everywhere to consider adopting a "coonie."
Remember, coonhounds are American dog breeds, worthy of our respect and devotion. If you are thinking about bringing a large sporting breed dog into your life, think about a coonhound or foxhound (or mix).

"Thank you for your website - it was the one site that I found when looking up his breed after we adopted him that made me feel like he'd be happy with us; so many other sites stressed how active hounds were and I was so afraid he'd be too much for us, but he's perfect!" ~Christina from NY
Our 2021 Calendar
Nick's Wicks is holding a Valentine's Day fundraiser for our vet fund!
Nick and his family in New Jersey started a soy candle-making small business in early 2020! Nick is just 10 years old but knows all about making candles! Nick's family adopted a foxhound puppy named Elvis about the same time they started the candle-making, so it is fun to think of all the new excitement in the family.
Soy candles are very clean burning and made of soy, grown by American farmers. Soy candles are also much longer lasting than regular candles; you will be amazed. They are better for your home's air quality and as a renewable energy source, better for the earth as well. Parafin candles are made from petroleum products and they produce a lot of soot that can dirty your ceilings and your lungs.
Give soy candles to your family and friends for Valentine's Day, but shop now, to give Nick time to make them and for USPS shipping.
To order candles, go to Nick's Wicks on Etsy!
These are our beloved coonhound breeds and the foxhound, a near cousin. Have you ever seen more handsome dogs?
