Nosework is one of the hottest sports around and truffle hunting is a fun way to go a step further by applying those skills in the real world. This course is open to students and dogs of all levels and can provide a new challenge for nosework and tracking students - with edible dividends! Culinary varieties of truffles can be found all over the world, and it is possible they exist near you. 

This class will introduce you and your dog to the exciting activity of truffle hunting. Recreational truffle hunting can boost confidence, develop problem solving skills, and provide controlled exercise and mental stimulation for your canine.  Truffle dog training is also a great way to build focus and to improve your human-canine relationship.  It is especially fun and rewarding for dogs and handlers recovering from injury or with limited mobility as well as shy and sensitive dogs to build confidence. Whether you are just looking for a new game to play with your dog or your goal is to locate native truffles in the wild, this class will show you how to get started.
