За решаването на този въпрос има две основни възможности:

Първата възможност е да си закупите и обучите сами куче.

Втората е,  да си закупите вече обучено куче.

При първата възможност ще са ви необходими: време, търпение, инвестиции във храна, аромат за обучение, ваксини, разходки и тренировки в гората....Разбира се няма гаранция, че ще получите желания резулатат. Този вариант се предпочита от хора, уверени в своите възможности, които не желаят бърз резултат от лова на трюфели.
