5% of Orders Benefit Canine Companions

At Truffle House, our passion for truffles extends beyond culinary excellence to the very roots of their discovery. We proudly donate 5% of your order total (minus transportation charges) to charities dedicated to animals, particularly our beloved canine companions.


As dogs play a vital role in the truffle hunt, this initiative is our way of showing love and appreciation for these incredible creatures.

Keen Sense of Smell

Dogs boast an extraordinary olfactory system, capable of detecting scents at incredibly low concentrations. This exceptional ability makes them ideal for the precise task of locating truffles hidden beneath the soil

Species-Specific Training

Truffle-hunting dogs undergo specialized training to distinguish the unique aroma of truffles from other scents in their environment. This focused training helps them develop a nuanced understanding of the distinct scent profiles of various truffle species.

Hunting Companionship

The bond between truffle hunters and their dogs is akin to a partnership. As hunting companions, dogs and their human counterparts work together in harmony. The dogs, driven by a combination of instinct and training, lead truffle hunters to the locations where these gastronomic gems lie hidden.

Truffle Identification

Once a truffle is located, dogs are trained to gently dig around it without causing damage. Their keen noses allow them to differentiate between ripe and unripe truffles, ensuring that only the finest specimens are harvested.

Diverse Breeds

While certain breeds are renowned for their truffle-hunting abilities, various dogs, including Lagotto Romagnolo, Springer Spaniels, and even some mixed breeds, can be trained for this purpose. The key is a strong sense of smell and a willingness to work alongside their human counterparts.

Preserving Truffle Ecosystems

Unlike mechanical alternatives, such as truffle rakes, dogs have minimal impact on the truffle ecosystem. Their careful harvesting methods protect the mycelium network in the soil, contributing to the sustainability and regrowth of truffle-producing areas.
