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. Please read previous attendee reviews, browse the gallery of photos and read the FAQ on the above tabs.
Many attendees have gone on to find truffles in the wild. One handler and dog team found their first truffles within a week of their workshop!
We currently run about 3 workshops per year, one each at Banbury, Chichester and Yeovil. Demand is very high. We announce the dates via our newsletter and they are booked up very quickly. We strongly recommend that you sign up to hear these announcements.
