Truffle Hunting Dates and Contact

Truffle Dog Services is available for hunting throughout the North Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay and Central North Island for 2017.

We check all the trees in your truffière with dogs, which are always worked on harness and lead.  The dogs are not released from their harness whilst on your property.

For your convenience, we work together with all truffiere owners to reduce time between each survey and be cost efficient for all owners.

Please send through a request for inclusion on truffle hunt on the days identified below through the calendar below:

Pre-season Re-charging

From spring to autumn most of our truffle dogs are part of the family.  Enjoying swimming in the river or troughs and generally being a valued member of the family.  Come late autumn their role changes to being a super efficient hunter of truffles.   This is where pre-season recharging is useful for both you and your dog.

Looking for more information on recharging your dog?  Contact us here.
