Hello all! It is good to see you back in the instructor’s forum again! And welcome James–I look forward to learning from you and your experience with truffle hunting and training!
I live in the Willamette Valley in Oregon and have a background in forest ecology and dog training. So truffle hunting is a great blend of my interests, and when I heard about it, I became eager to learn. I have been a professional dog trainer and instructor for many years, but I had not done nosework prior to truffle dog training. So I have a lot to learn in this department! I have 2 dogs in training: the one you’ll see in the class forum (Dottie), plus another that I have taken through some of Kristin and Alana’s classes in the past. I am really looking forward to this year’s truffle season!
Thanks in advance to all of you for sharing your knowledge and insight throughout the class!
