There's a lot more than you would think. You see a dog that's good at "winding" a squirrel, there is a real good chance he has it in his back ground. Hog hunters round here breed it into their dogs for the same reason.

but if you are taking a long term approach, it can be done in 2 or 3 generations, and it can make a tremendous improvement winding ability

The true field bred bird dogs are bred to run. They hunt the field bred bird dogs off horses many times. If they stop running during the field trial, the dog gets picked up. Putting bird dog in your breeding puts winding ability and wheels on the dogs. They will flat hunt.

The very best squirrel treeing machine we ever had was 1/2 German Shorthair Pointer. Only problem we had with him was he hated skunks and would hunt them at night when able to get out of the pen. Kill them and come back to sleep under the truck. You knew quick, fast and in a hurry when he had gotten out and had a "good" night skunk hunting.

My GSP bird dog loves squirrels. I don't hunt birds but I do like squirrel hunting. I haven't taken her squirrel hunting yet . I fear that she would chase a deer into the next county. Maybe if I get a gps for my gsp , I will try her at hunting squirrels.

lots of bird dog bred into squirrel dogs. gsp in particular. i had a springer that hated rodents and would hunt squirrel but wouldn't open up on the tree. look toward the champ bred dogs if you want to find people crossing bird dog into treeing feist. i wouldn't want more than 1/8 to 1/4 in any dog i hunt but that's just me.
