The two-day Truffle Dog Training will be held on a lovely family farm outside Banks, Oregon, with the following schedule:
11:00 am – 4:00 pm Saturday, March 9
10:30 am – 3:30 pm Sunday, March 10
The two-day Truffle Dog Training is a training intensive where participants learn the fundamentals of scent training and hunt truffles with their dog in the forest on Day 2.
Day 1 includes curriculum review and questions, and begins outdoor training exercises. On Day 2, you’ll take your new skills into the forest for more training and after lunch, a full on truffle hunt.
A catered Oregon truffle lunch is included both Saturday and Sunday, along with warm beverages and snacks.
$625 – 1 dog, 1 person, or
$775 for 1 dog, 2 persons

Once you have purchased your tickets, you will receive information packets from OTF and our trainers on preparing for the class, timing for the 2 days of training, and other pertinent details.
Lodging is not included. The closest dog-friendly hotel is the Best Western University Inn & Suites in Forest Grove, about 15-20 minutes from the farm, so we recommend booking as soon as you can. There are other options further east towards Portland in Hillsboro as well.
OTF cannot offer refunds once you have registered except in the very unlikely event your dog is deemed unsuited for training. Dogs must be vaccinated for rabies, and females cannot attend if they are in heat.
