Truffle Hunts

Put on your most colourful gumboots and grab your pooch and join us for a decadent day of all things truffles. This is an exclusive handcrafted experience visiting a Truffle Orchard the outer Daylesford/Creswick region of Victoria. We meet in Port Melbourne for some essential sniff and social time before getting comfy on Bella who greets you with a climate controlled cabin, human and doggy seat belts, blankets, gift bags and of course the pooches get the window seat. With Bella’s magnificent large windows, it is the pawfect vantage point to take in the beautiful scenery while we wander our way to our first stop of picnic morning tea. With the wee break done it is time for little paws to climb on board Bella so we can venture to the Truffle Orchard with a welcoming glass of sparkling and truffle tastings greeting us. While the human folks visit the inner sanctum of the orchard the dogs are lining up for cuddles with the Dog Carer just waiting for their special truffle treasure hunt. With the excitement of the morning fading into tired little paws just know they are getting a massage and movie while their fur-parents enjoy a truffle inspired lunch. This is a day of indulgence and fun with your pooch with very limited hunt dates!
