What animals are used to hunt for truffles?

0

Pigs were the traditional animal used to locate the mature truffle, but in essence it is difficult to train a pig to sit, stop or stay, then don’t eat the truffle, which is a natural thing for a pig to do, so we use specially trained dogs to identify the location of the truffles. Any dog will find truffles if it has a good relationship with its trainer and enjoys the game. We have used Springer spaniels, Labradors and a lagoto which is a traditional European truffle hunting dog, but they all have their good and bad points.
