Unlike humans, dogs will ignore the scent of unripened truffles and go straight for the good stuff, and you don't need to have a purebred hunting dog to train them to pick up the scent.
We love this idea, and think it would be fun way for even a hobbyist truffle hunter to spend some quality time with their favorite pooch.
