           We hope you can find a host of information concerning the                                 "Ultimate Squirrel Dog" on this site.  ATFA is unlike any other                          squirrel dog association.  It was formed to promote the breed and                    improve the American Treeing Feist consistent with the breed standards           that you will find on this website. If a dog has an "ATFA Squirrel Champion" or "ATFA Grand Squirrel Champion" title, then it is TRULY A CHAMPION having proved the ability to hunt under many different conditions and in a variety of locations. 

     Browse through the site and contact us if you have any questions. Hopefully you will find something here that will encourage you to join the ATFA and find an "Ultimate Squirrel Dog" American Treeing Feist!
