Why does my dog trained on real material behave differently with Getxent tubes?

The odor profile released by the impregnated Getxent tube is strictly the same as the one from real material.


However, depending on the duration of impregnation, the intensity released by the Getxent tubes can be different from the real material. Indeed, it has been proven that dogs can only detect 10x more or 10x less the concentration they were trained with (see https://www.mdpi.com/2076-2615/11/2/326).


If the dog behaves differently with impregnated Getxent tubes, the main reason is that the intensity released by the tube is out of your dog detection limit (too high or too low).


We suggest testing different impregnation durations and check the behavior of the dog.
