Take your training to the next level with a Private Lesson in The Field. We will take you to one of our truffle producing sites ideal for educational purposes. You will have the opportunity to work on skills that will successfully transition your team from controlled training scenarios to real truffle hunting in the wild!
The forest is an extremely complex environment and each dog responds differently to the variables present in the woods. We design training sessions so you and your dog can have success and a positive reinforcement history while working on precise behaviors, handler skills and your relationship as a working team.
Instructors for Truffle Dog Company focus on building confidence, experience and teamwork, gradually. Our goal is to help you develop into a reliable truffle dog team. Dogs quickly learn the truffle scent and are often capable of locating a wild truffle in a short period of time. One wild truffle is great, but sustained truffle finding is even better! We take you to the next level by working with your dog’s natural abilities and tailoring situations to help them become consistent truffle dogs with a reliable and consistent history.
We currently have instructors in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia.
Specific time and location of lessons will be determined after purchase and based on the team’s current skill level.
Private Lessons can be a maximum of 2 handlers, two dogs total and only one dog is worked at a time for maximum learning potential.
