We are running a number of one day truffle dog training workshops around the country. These fun and informative days are aimed at beginners with no previous scent-work experience. 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.
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.
Truffle Dog Training Workshop Content
These workshops include:
- Theoretical presentations including scent work and finding truffles.
- Practical sessions where participants start training their dogs to find truffle scent based on our explanations and methods.
Workshops run from 10:00 AM to around 4:30 PM.
Places are limited to 8 dogs plus handlers. Additional family members can attend as spectators but a charge is made. Spectating may not suit children, please see relevant points in our workshop terms and conditions. Sorry, but you cannot spectate unless you are accompanying a dog plus handler.
