Truffle Hunting training is basically a Scent Trace training, with the exception that during this training the dog’s owner will have to be more educated about truffles.
Not all fungi that live below the ground surface are truffles, and truffles do not grow everywhere!
In order to succeed with the truffle training, owners need to have some basic understanding of:
- Truffle ecology,
- Truffle morphology.
The training will consist of:
- Dog training (on training field and inside the truffle productive forest),
- Truffle theory,
- Truffle tasting (over dinner or lunch),
- Truffle hunt.
The training period will be dependant on truffle season.
MINIMUM TRAINING DAYS: 7
DOG AGE: Up to 3 years old
