Working puppies in the field is fun!!!
Professional trainer Jim Basham starts working "Mariah" with a wing
Mariah chases for a while
Mariah gets tired and begins to stop
A flip of the wing starts to get a "point"
Soon, Mariah is pointing.   This process is called "yardwork"
Then comes exposure to the real thing!!!
Soon they learn to run!!!
and find birds for themselves!!!!
John Abel with Tarbaby's Cherokee Maiden on the right shows the results!!!
