Pointing
Explanation:
As far as I remember, though my dog-breeding days are some time in the past, the Hungarian Viszla is a working dog of similar attributes to the Pointer which we all know. They are so called because when they get wind of game, they stand and "point" in its direction. Hence, I think the word you need is "pointing" - "hey, look, I'm practising pointing already...."
