The tradition of hunting for truffles
Recently we sent our farm dog, Barry, away to a truffle dog trainer so that he can learn the basics on how to find truffles. Barry is a Kelpie and is almost 3 years of age so has reached the right level of maturity to concentrate on the task at hand.
You may not realise that all breed of dogs have the same ability to smell, which is hundreds of times better than us humans, due to the fact that their noses contain approx. 300 million olfactory receptors.
