I'm looking at training my dog to become a Truffle Dog, that is scent detecting truffles, as not far from where i live there a number of truffle farms. What i wanted to know was how one goes about teaching a dog to detect a particular scent, and if there are any particular books that anyone could recommend for training scent detection. I've got one book at present but it is more on tracking and air scenting, as in looking for people. The other books i have viewed all seem to be on tracking:dogsad:. Truffle hunting is a bit like the Drug Detection Dogs, or dogs trained for a specific scent only.
