At home, the hides cook 20-30 minutes. At the kennel club, not very long although the target sat in the glove box of the car (in multiple Ziploc bags) so it wasn’t frozen. I will set out the hide in the morning in the furnace room and then we can work it in the evening. Pooling odor sounds interesting to see how she works it.

To be honest, I still can’t imagine Monza working off leash in the woods. I’m still convinced being a free dog will trump truffle hunting. I’ll ‘keep the faith’ so to speak and work methodically.

Any tips on transporting truffles to new locations. Is storing in multiple Ziploc bags in the glove box okay?
