I have continued every day training my toy poodle dog to sniff out Truffles. His training is going better than I expected, as I have had no previous experience in dog training.
And I must say, Genki is really enjoying the experience. We go out in the Trufferee, and I hide the piece of truffle that I have tied in the toe of a sock, (having it in the sock was necessary, as he kept eating the pieces of truffle that I had aquired for training purposes.) I ask him to find the truffle, and he sniffes around until he locates it, and usually tosses it in the air with excitement. I then give him his treat, and we repeat the exercise a few more times.
I am hopeing that he will be able to locate any actual truffles when they ripen in Winter.
