ZAGREB, 18 June 2019 – After several years of training the dogs, searching for the naural truffle habitats and learning about unique specialties, we can finally guarantee that Zagreb is one of the rare capital cities in the world that has a pure treasure – wild fresh truffles.

Truffles are difficult to grow, hard to find and always in high demand. It’s hard to believe that one of the rarest, most expensive, wild noble foods in the world is tracked thanks to the talent of pigs and rare dogs.

Lagotto Romagnolo is a truffle hunter and as its name suggests, it’s a dog breed originating from the Romagna region in Italy and is the only pure breed dog in the world recognized as a specialized truffle searcher.
