The use of an intermittent schedule of reinforcement to evaluate detection dogs’ generalization from smokeless-powder

Jul 6, 2022

Getxent tubes impregnated by exposition to direct & indirect contact with 10 g of Smokeless Powder (SP) for 48h then evaluated by dogs.

Study concludes that:

  • The proportion of correct responses to the Getxent tubes, and IED were not statistically different from SP
  • The sniff time for the Getxent tubes is not statistically different from SP.

Thus, Getxent tubes exposed to direct or indirect contact to SP can be consider non-pseudo training aids.
