Truffle Hunting

A professional service by expert noses

Truffle farming is a growing industry in New Zealand. There are over 250 Truffle Farms nationwide today. Truffle are a very valuable fungus that grow under the ground in the root system of certain trees. The expert nose of the dog is used to find the truffle when they are mature and need to be harvested.

We are lucky enough to have some of the very few working truffle dogs in New Zealand at Dog Almighty.

Rosie... is an expert at finding Black Perigord (a.k.a. Black Diamonds). Rosie, a Jack Russell X was rescued from Tasman Pound and trained to find truffle by our dog trainer Sue in sunny Motueka. With an outstanding track record and 4 seasons under her belt so far...Rosie doesn't miss a trick.

Sprocket... is our Truffle Dog in training. Sprocket was also rescued from the Tasman Pound... apart from being super cute he also shows incredible talent for using his nose. He is following in the footsteps of his big (little) sister Rosie and will be launching his Truffle Hunting career next season. Watch this space!
