We are running a number of one day truffle dog training workshops around the country. These fun and informative days will give you and your dog an excellent foundation towards finding truffles. The focus of the day will be field-based exercises for you and your dog using truffle scent. There are no pre-requisites for dogs or handlers, attending this workshop, all are welcome.
So attendees can carry on the training in their local environment, handlers will receive a truffle dog training kit, a bottle of truffle oil and extensive notes after the workshop.
