October 27. We set out five hides for Tippet along a forest road close to home. The road is vaguely familiar to him and has some D.Fir that we will explore as the season goes on.
I used real truffles for the first time, and because of that I did not want to bury them deeply. In three of five tins, I put a q-tip with truffle oil in the tin, as well as the truffle piece.
He was challenged, but persistent. I stood fairly close to a couple of the hides, but he found them all. I will give him one more shallow set and then he will have the odor down pat and be ready for this week’s homework..
