Truffle Hunting Experience
In the past, female pigs were used to hunt for truffles as the pungent odour that they emit is similar to that of a male pig. Sows were difficult to control when a truffle was located and would often eat it! Today most hunters now use truffle dogs that are easier to control and will happily leave a found truffle for a food reward. Virtually any breed of dog can be trained to find truffles.
