Do any of you who do find truffles with your dog consider them working dogs? I would myself, as they are working whether they are doing it recreationally or commercially. Does anyone compete in Scent detection trials, or nose work, whichever they call it? I want to compete next year, and will have to put him in working stream, as he does this for a job. According to the rules. I know Alana mentioned earlier if anyone competes in nose work sports. My dog has an active alert, which in boxes would need to be changed to a passive alert. I do not think this should affect his truffle hunting as the environment and cues are different than boxes indoors or searching a room or vehicles. Thoughts, anyone with experience with this?
