Wayne Watson:

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.

twistitup:

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!

Wayne Watson:

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

AcornHunter:

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?

Appreciate the offer but I'll pass on the ESL.

I've had 3 different squirrel dogs and the laika is by far the smartest and best one I've had.

Thanks.  Not a drive at all.  I'm in that area about 6 or 8 times a year.

Enjoyed that site with the pups, info & pictures, thanks.  Makes me want to do some squirrel hunting again this fall, around some scenic creeks & woods like those pictured.

Fall squirrel hunting is hard beat, this will be my first year with my new dog- I'm looking forward to it.

Wayne Watson:

Got ready to buy a dog the other day....it was sold that day.  I like this guys dogs so I'm keeping tabs.

DeltaBoy:

Our family had good luck with rat terriors, fiest and some beagles.

DeltaBoy:

Nope.  Still looking.

DeltaBoy:

Good Luck Try an AD in the paper!

Wayne Watson:

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.



twistitup:

My grandpa trained a schnauzer / poodle mix to be an awesome squirrel dog...it's possible with many many dogs!

Good luck

Hope she works out.  I need someone who has a mature squirrel dog to hunt with to show her the ropes.

Nice looking pup, hope she turns out well for you.

DeltaBoy:

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.

DeltaBoy:

update on your dog Wayne.

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.

She is showing all the traits of being a great squirrel dog.

PorkRinds:

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.

DeltaBoy:

Are you shooting around her yet?  That was always the hardest part for me.  Getting them used to the shooting. 

DeltaBoy:

Glad to here on another thread that pup getting after those Tree Rats.

Wayne Watson:

She's retired for a little while.  Was spayed last Friday so she's taking it easy for about 10 days.

DeltaBoy:

Bless her heart but the will cut down on several issues down the road.

Wow.  That dog has grown fast.  Looking at those pictures you have back in late Sept.....doesn't seem like it could be the same little pup.
