Event: August Pointer Training
Date: 08/20/2006

We tag along with some pointers and their people for a late summer quail work-out in advance of the coming hunt season.
This clan of Pointers has done this a lot, and know the drill about waiting their turn in the SUV. It's warm, but parked in the shade with all the windows open, it's comfortable enough. The 5-month-old pup, of course, gets crate time.

Uma backs Riley. Notice that the more experienced Uma has her tail more relaxed - she's aware that this won't be her bird to work.

Ah, maturity. Uma pivots, and stands to watch as her less experienced bracemate can't resist chasing a just-flushed Bob White towards the hedgerow.

Gus is getting some … er … pointers from Stella on the sort of cover-working drive needed to find those scent cones in still air on a warm day. Into the hedge she goes.

Gus, still getting a handle on things, is learning the required saint-like patience of eyeballing a cheeky quail stolling the grass just two yards away. That's pressure!
