Sometimes dogs have "it" and sometimes they don't.
Some folks on here would say to you that at a year its to late for that dog and to move on. Some would tell you that a year is to soon to give up and to keep at it.
I would tend to agree with the latter, if the pup has at least some interest in squirrels.
If it were my dog, Id keep at it a while longer and keep taking it out. get it really excited about squirrels, let it have a couple, and get it on some trees. It could help if you have another dog that is a good squirrel dog to take it out with and show it the ropes.
