I grew up hunting squirrels with a succession of feist dogs that belonged to other people---finally got one of my own that refused to hunt at all, but was a fine companion. With the exception of the one I owned, they were excellent squirrel dogs and would chase out a rabbit if the opportunity presented itself. I killed a ton of squirrels with these dogs. Google the breed for more info.

Beagle, no doubt about it. A good beagle should run a trail at a medium pace, and if he's really good loop it back around to the shooters. We had a couple like this but it was a lot of work with the right dog.

You just need a dog that is loyal and obeys you. You can teach any smart dog to hunt if you think about it.....

I have the perfect non-human hunting partner. It is a mutt mix of a Mastiff-Great Dane and Rotweilier. he will chase deer, pigs, rabbit, squirrel or any other game i choose. he lives to make me happy. he is a little stubborn but food is a big motivator.

when teaching my kids to hunt squirrels I would have one of them to walk around to the other side of a big oak, or hickory or any other tree I thought there might be a squirrel. This will make them scoot around or up the tree. While the kids did this they were learning to hunt. Terriers make a great squirrel dog.

I go hunting with a german short haired pointer and he leads me right to squirrels with no problem.
