Truffle Hunting Dates 2018

Truffle Dog Services is available for hunting throughout the Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay, Manawatu, and Central North Island for 2018.

We will check all the trees in your truffière with dogs, which are always worked on harness and lead.  The dogs are not released from their harness whilst on your property.  For your convenience, we work together with truffiere owners in the same region to reduce time between each survey and be cost efficient for all owners.

2018 Dates for Truffle Dog Services Surveying

Hunting for the 2018 perigord season will start on the weekend of the 2nd June 2018 in North Auckland.  Further information will be available prior to the start of the 2018 season.
