Odour preparation and Strength
We prepare the Q tips using the absorption method and not the direct drop method
unless requested otherwise we will make the Q tips up to ANKC standard which is
2 drops of oil on the cotton ball in a glass jar with 30 Q tip buds
Odour Storage Containers
Odour gets out of everything even if we can't smell it our dogs can.
I have tested multiple containers to see which ones offer the best protection and have supplied the best I could find. Both containers we offer have really good seals but they should still be stored away from your dogs at all times.
Odour hygiene is huge, we can practise all we want but still stuff our dogs up if our odour hygiene is lazy or thoughtless for this reason we have supplied you with gloves and a leaflet to give you some ideas of how to manage it.
Our Mini Hides Deluxe Kit contains some extremely cool hides made from tin or aluminium. We have put holes in the top of the round and domino tins to allow the odour to escape properly.
Our tiny micro magnetic hides do not have holes in the top but can be half unscrewed to allow odour out. We have tested these hides repeatedly with various dogs in classes and they all find the hides even without holes in the top - dogs noses are amazing !
We have supplied a magnet which can be placed into the tins if you need to attached them to metal posts or objects.
I am also teaching my own dogs scenting and totally understand getting the correct odour and strength of odour is essential for giving you and your dog every chance of success, great care has gone into preparing the odour in these kits for you.
