Does he climb trees?

I have never had a dog who could catch any significant amount of squirrels,
though not for lack of trying; the squirrels here learn very quickly to stay
out of a dog's reach, either in the trees or up the sides of buildings.

Even the cats can't catch them, because the squirrels weigh less and can go
further out on the branches than the cats can.
