No more trouble with truffles with South Whidbey parks' help

Dogs can learn to sniff out black, white and brown truffles at an upcoming lesson through the South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District.

Teachers Elizabeth Kalik and Kelley Slocum will cover the ideals in canine type, looking for promising truffle habitat, getting harvest permission and scent collection and preservation. Class will be at the parks district office, located at 5475 Maxwelton Road in Langley.

The clinic, which runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, costs $120 for a dog and its handler.
