Squirrel Hunting Dogs Page





Thank you for visiting this page, or maybe I should say Dean's page.
He is the one who started out hunting and raising the squirrel dogs. He has been breeding this line of squirrel dogs for the past 20 + years, and they are bred to hunt. We have mostly Mountain Curs now.

Dean does not train the dogs by dragging  a hide through the woods and take the dogs to smell the scent.   
When the dogs are old enough Dean takes them to the woods, by themselves or with a trained older dog. They use to go with him while he was riding a horse. While riding a horse Dean would jump a squirrel out for the dogs, it trains them to watch for the squirrel and learns them how to track it and tree. After a few times of going to the woods they learn to hunt and tree squirrels, they will practically train themselves with a little help from you. 

We now let our dogs go with us on our walks in the woods. They're training starts out as puppies and we let them just be puppies while learning them to be handled, ride, and load. They learn to go with us and to be loaded to go back home.

These dogs are very smart, loyal, affectionate, and they make a great companions. They readily adapt to living outside, but they also make good house pets. As a puppy they bond to you, and they are easy to train.

These two were our Australian Sheppard's Angel and Maxine. We no longer have them but they surprised us by being great squirrel dogs. They went with  Dean when he rode horses and learned to tree squirrel with him. We lost them both several months apart and we still miss them to this day.
