About Us

Based out of Seattle, Washington, you will often find us traveling up and down the coast from California to British Columbia and abroad to check on established truffle plantations during the appropriate seasons, and to giving talks globally on truffles, dogs, and the industry at large.

At Toil & Truffle we cater to all things canine, and all things foraged. One of our primary activities at Toil & Truffle is related to truffle harvesting, training, and the scientific research surrounding the confluence of dogs and truffles through our sister site, the Truffle Dog Company.

The other half of the business is dedicated to animal behavior and helping families with dogs problem solve behavioral scenarios though the use of positive and reward based reinforcement, providing you as an owner with the skills and tools necessary to be able to lead an enjoyable daily life with your canine companion.

We have over 10 years of experience training dogs with positive & reward reinforcement techniques and are members of the APDT, ABS, and the IAABC, as well as being a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA). We are continuously enhancing and educating ourselves on the advancements in science and understanding of Animal Behavior.
