Private Truffle hunts can be arranged in season which is June to August or mock hunts to watch the Dogs working at any time of the year. Our main hunt is always mid July where we invite the public to a morning tea, hunt for Truffles followed by a 4 course Truffle inspired lunch at The Plough Myrniong
Truffle Hunts
Our Truffle Dog Sally is a rescue dog, who we are pretty sure, was very badly treated and beaten before being abandoned. We believe she was about 1 year old when we collected her from the pound. As the day was very close to Ian’s birthday we decided that would be her birthday also. Sally is mostly Labrador but with a definite serve of Kelpie and possibly some pointer. Once we had gained her confidence, which was a slow and careful program, we started training her to hunt the elusive and wonderful Truffle and she has proven to be a keen and quick learner. She has a fine “nose” and is always eager to work. Of course the reward of locating a Truffle is a slice of Kabana as an added incentive. Sally has a loving and happy disposition and is a much loved part of our family as well as a great Truffle dog.
