Truffling Training

In September 2019 we were delighted to welcome Denise Stalder from dello Spirito del Bosco kennels in Switzerand to train us and our dogs in the art of truffle searching.  Denise runs Truffle Workshops worldwide through her Trüffel Akademie Schweiz and is co-author of the book ‘Lagotto Romagnolo & Trüffel’. We learnt about the different types of truffles, how to identify likely areas and conditions that would support truffle growth, and also how to train and incentivise our dogs. We were also delighted to see Sasha Dorey who joined us on Day 1 with her experienced truffle dog, Ralf, to show us how it is done…
