Scent tube scent hides are perfect for perforated bricks in focus walls. They will reduce cross-contamination between the odour and the brick by reducing physical contact.
Fired clay bricks can display high porosity values between 15 – 40 % which can trap odour and lead to false indications. Some trainers will replace the brick while others will teach the dogs to ignore the false indications.
These cylindrical hides work very similarly to our magnetic box hides. The cap has 2mm perforations on one end and a removable cap on the other end to allow loading and unloading of the odour.
We would recommend keeping each hide with its own individual odour and not switching them between different odours. This will avoid any cross-contamination and false indications. Together with a blank which can be used as a control!
