Lets face it:

Hunting Wild Truffles Successfully Is
Damn Hard.

The reason? There are SO MANY THINGS you need to master!

Here’s a sneak peak at what you need to know:

  • How dogs learn
  • Reinforcement Training
  • Verbal Cues and Marking
  • Shaping vs Luring
  • Developing Motivation
  • Developing Drive
  • Scent Pairing
  • Scent Identification
  • Indication Training
  • Understanding your dog
  • Dog Body Language
  • Indoor Training vs Outdoor Training
  • The hunting Sequence
  • Field Training
  • Blind Hides 
  • Wind Scent Dynamics
  • And this is not everything… 
 

Is your head spinning in overwhelm yet? – I remember mine certainly was when I started out.

I struggled for months and months trying to figure everything out for myself.

  • I read 30+ books 

  • Invested in 10+ mentors, 

  • Bought 15+ courses, 

  • Attended many workshops, 

  • Hung out with ‘real’ truffle hunters, 

And spent thousands $$$ and countless hours in my training and education, and today I have finally pieced it all together to share with you. 

 

Training Your Dog To Hunt Truffles Can Be As Easy As "ABC"

Forget about all the dog scent detection training you’ve already seen online.

Effective truffle dog training is different from traditional scent detection training BUT it doesn’t need to be complicated!

And with the right recipe, you can have great success. 

Here’s the 3 KEY training concepts you need to master:

  1. 🚀 Drive – Motivation to hunt 
  2. 🌀 Searching  Hunting effectively 
  3. 🎯 Indicating – Final desired behaviour 
 

But doing all these 3 things at the same time is time-consuming and tricky without the right system.

This is where my 30 Day Truffle Dog System™ comes into play.

I can help you hunt truffles with your dog effectively and tackle all 3 of these KEY concepts at the same time, training only in your spare time and WITHOUT all the overwhelm, EVEN IF, you’re a complete beginner.
