Riley and Elle in search of Truffles

This weekend offered a new experience for both Elle and Riley. Their first Truffle Search Seminar. Who would have thought there would be truffles in Germany.

After a couple of hours theory in the class room it was then time to hit the woods and start searching. That the boy has a good nose has already been proven many times before in his scent work but to put this to use on finding truffles was something new. And of course the excitement of digging them up when he found them was just overwhelming. With a bit more restraint and practice it certainly looks like we have a truffle dog on our hands.

Elle and Riley came back utterly exhausted but happy with 3 truffles.
