Good luck it’s addictive. I don’t think it matters on the breed it’s more about the line of dog you choose. Both breeds have deep hunting/closer hunting dogs you just have to find the line of dogs that hunt the way you’d like. Take it from someone who’s started with puppies it is probably one of the most rewarding things but the flip side to that is it’s also the most frustrating. If all you want is to go out and kill squirrels with your boys I’d buy either a finished or well started dog. After you see how you guys like it maybe next season buy a pup. I hope this helped.
