Can a golden be both a Squirell and bird dog?
As some of you may know we added a new puppy to the family last week. My mother plans to train her to be a squirell retriever like she did with our older golden ginnie. My mom has never bird hunted before but gracie has shown interest in birds already, goes crazy over a neighbors bird feeder that attracts doves. Keeping in mind that her primary role will be on squirells can a golden be trained to retrieve both birds and squirrels, or are we simply crazy thinking of trying to train her on both?
