The law clearly specifies that trained dogs must be used to search for truffles but does not indicate the breed.
The choice of Truffle Dogs must be made according to the Territory in which the search is to be carried out:
- in areas such as those of the Apennines, where there are climbs and slopes in the woods, the most suitable dogs are the Pointer and the Bracchi, as they are very quick to search.
- while in flat areas, where the woods extend between roads and ditches, it is better to use dogs such as the Lagotto Romagnolo, with a short pace and less frenetic in search, characteristics that make it more manageable when the seeker calls.
Furthermore, the Truffle Hunter (Professional) mainly makes use of the collaboration of dog breeds such as the Pointer, Bracco, Spinone, Cocker and Jack Russel, while for the Truffle Hunter (beginner) an already trained Lagotto Romagnolo is preferable, a little impetuous and manageable.
