Dogs are agile, easily transportable, and endlessly trainable. They represent an efficient, highly sensitive and non-invasive way to collect high-quality data.
HOW DO THEY DO IT?
Humans have about 5 million olfactory receptors in their noses; dogs can have up to 300 million, which is why they can detect a single teaspoon of sugar in a million gallons of water. Where we experience the world visually, dogs perceive a detailed olfactory landscape. They perceive world mostly with the nose.
The dog’s nose is designed so that it can sniff continuously. Dogs can determine which nostril an odor came in first, which helps them locate an odor in space.
WHAT CAN THEY DO?
Their amazing abilities help us collect more and better quality data in the field.
OUR DOGS CAN:
- Detect plants, animals and droppings that people simply couldn’t see.
- Find targets up to 40 times faster than is possible with other methods.
- Give results instantly, with near-perfect accuracy.
- Search for multiple targets simultaneously without any reduction in effectiveness.
