The Hunt

A good truffle dog is critical to the hunt. Dr. Michaels has hunted with several dog breeds including the signature breed, Lagotto Romagnolo, the Italian truffle dog. As mentioned in Alan Richman's September 2009 GQ article, Hilarie Gibbs-Sykes and Mel Sykes are breeders in East Tennessee and found the wonderful dogs who found the astounding 200 pounds of truffles in the 2008-2009 season, as mentioned in the NPR audio by Ann Lloyd. If you would like more information on the breed, please contact them at hgibbs@planetc.com, 865-988-5271, Lagotto Del Tiglio.
