Looking to buy a squirrel dog.  Anyone know of anyone in NWA that may be a breeder or a good place to buy one.

Thanks.

Pup or dog?

I know a guy that has rat / jack russell mix pups- good genetics for a sq dog if you like fiest style dogs

That's exactly the type of dog I'm looking for.  PM me a contact number.  I'd take a pup but would prefer a dog already trained. 

Thanks.

That is a great way to spend time in the woods....with a good squirrel dog.  Haven't done that since I was a kid.  Didn't often get to hunt with a dog, but it sure was fun. Hunting squirrels as a kid was my favorite......& how I really learned "how" to hunt.  If you could harvest a mess of gray squirrels on Saturday with a .22, you could probably successfully hunt just about anything in the area.

Wayne,
I'll see the guy today. I know he doesn't have trained dogs for sale, but he may have a few pups left. Last weekend there were 6 available. I'll also ask around about trained dogs.

Squirrel hunting is a blast, have loved it my whole life. My grandpa loved it too - he still ate the brains- old school!

We always had a squirrel dog when I was growing up.  I decided there is no reason to not have one now.

WW,

An East Siberian Laika is a long way from being a fyce, I know, but would you consider one?

What price range do you have in mind?

Well, I got a pup from a friend in West Fork.  She's a mix but she seems very smart at 8 weeks old.  Time will tell.  Worse case, she sits in my lap and eats popcorn.  She does like hanging out in my shop.

Good luck take her to a city park and see if she will chase squirrels.  Like Twist my Great Grandfather took a many Heinz 57 dog and taught them to tree squirrels , When I was real little he had a Walker / Black n Tan mix that would tree every squirrel in 3 counties if you let it.

Doing good.  She weighs 16.4 lbs.  Working with her until she loses interest right now.  Training a pup has to be fun to them.

She 3 months old now.  Gonna start hunting her after deer season.  She already loves to retrieve.  And she brings it straight back to you, let's you have it with no fuss.

Dad used to train squirrel and rabbit dogs by killing one and skinning it, and then tying it to a rope.  Then he'd let the pup maul it over good and have us kids run around while the pup chased it.  When he wanted to teach it to tree, he'd have use run around and then throw the rope over a tree limb and let it hang there while the pup ran around underneath trying to get to it.  That's all I really remember that he did, but it worked pretty darn good.
