Truffle Dog Training: Jasper Red Hill Truffles, Mornington Peninsula.

This year we have 4 new truffle hunting apprentices.

Our first dog is named Jasper

Name: Jasper

Breed: English springer Spaniel

Age: 12 months

Reward: Cooked Chicken

Weekly Training Sessions: Jasper has already started some training while watching Maddy, a professional truffle hunter but needs to build his confidence. We are starting small and working our way up to more difficult challenges.

Week 1: Paired Inside

Week 2: Paired outside/ Unpaired inside.

Week 3: Unpaired outside with distractions

He is coming along very nicely and it still quite a young dog. We are working on building his confidence, stamina and accuracy with his alerting.
