Hi,
  I have read a few of the threads but there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of information about Tibetan Quail. I see a lot of people prefer Tennessee Reds and BW's but how does the tibetan fly? I believe the tibetans are faster growers and easier to raise but is there a downfall? I also read that with tibetan quail you are able to shoot all year around being they are not a native species compared to the BW's and maybe the tennessee reds. Is that true? i just got a vizsla pup and planned on picking up a few quail to raise. Also, having the birds in the same area of the dog, does that effect the dog in any way? for example, maybe the pup getting use to the smell and not being able to track and point as the pup gets older or is it possible for the pup to lose interest since there are birds around him all the time.

  One of the biggest "DO NOTS" in dog training is allowing a pup to catch a bird.  Using Tibetan, or most Coturnix Quail for pointing dog training is a gamble not worth the risk.

  I've had 6 month old Brittanys catch Bobwhites.  It is possible to raise Jumbo Brown Coturnix that fly fairly well, but that's not a beginner level project.

  Since we don't have any idea where you live and train, we can't offer you much advice on how to train during the off season.

Well, I live in northern california (Vacaville) we have some what tall grass/brush ( maybe anywhere 6 inches to 2 feet ) all around here with wild pheaseant. He is only 8 weeks old rite now when it comes time i would like to be ready to train him. I have never owned a pointer before so the training is all new to me.

 Scott if Pheasant are going to be the primary gamebird that the dog will be hunting, then get a pheasant wing and tie it to a 6ft. string and tie the other end of the string to a pole and flip it in front of the pup and get him started pointing it. Just do not let him catch it.  Just do not over work him, about 10 min. in the am and 10 to 15 min. in the pm..They are never to young to start them on a wing..

Lots of people use pigeons (hint, hint) so I can't imagine using Tibetan quail would be a disadvantage...as long as they can fly away from the dog and will hold for a point.
