Descended from English Foxhounds and formerly classified as an English Coonhound, the Treeing Walker earned his name by trailing game faster than other coonhounds and then treeing it until the hunter arrived. The Walker part of the name comes from Kentuckian John W. Walker, who helped develop the breed.
