These seminars are designed as an introduction for students interested in recreational truffle hunting with their canine companions. Topics covered will address regional aspects of truffle hunting, such as finding truffle locations, how dogs locate truffles, the truffle markets worldwide, begining hands- on training, and much more. These events allow students the opportunity to speak with professional truffle hunters in the area and provide an opportunity to have a truffle dog trainer evaluate their dog for suitability in truffle detection before students commit to time and a monetary investment.
Seminars are not a necessary prerequisite to training but are strongly encouraged, as a trainer will be present to evaluate students’ dogs for suitability in recreational truffle hunting.
Limited spaces are available for attendees with canines.
