anyone use dogs for squirrels?

Id like to find a squirrel dog or someone who trains them but i havent found much of anything. Im leaning toward a fiest but i dont know much about curs. Are they hard to train or should i lean toward one that has already been trained?

Most any dog with a high prey drive will chase and tree squirrles. I have sled dogs that I hunt squirrels and snowshoe hare with. They are silent but I keep them in visual contact at all times.. I didn't train them. I just let nature take its coarse.
Fiests and curs are probably best at it. I know a guy who uses his wife's Jack Russell Terrorists.

I agree almost any dog will find and chase squirrels just let em roam.

The question is do you want a big dog or small dog? What other qualitys do you want in your dog?

There are too many to list that could be squirrel huntin dogs.
