Level 3: Let’s Go Truffle Hunting: Practical Application & Sustainability
Get ready for a truffle hunt!
This class transitions your truffle hunting skills into the forest. You will learn to work with your dog to negotiate a variety of environmental factors that are common when truffle hunting. We will guide you step-by-step, to successfully transition you and your dog, as a team, to finding real truffles in the wild. We start by introducing you & your dog to large and complex area searches, progressing to buried & blind hides in more complex forested settings, proofing for distractions, building endurance, searching negative space, and working in odor dense environments and deserts. We work with you on how to read your dog, solidifying alerts for precision in the field. The class also includes games and exercises to strengthen your bond with your canine and boost confidence.
