Two-bowl tests are classically used to evaluate food preference in dogs. In particular, first choices measured with this method bring information on food attractiveness related to odor. However, when no difference in 1st choice is observed, it is not possible to tell whether this is due to a similar attractiveness of odors perceived differently by the dogs, or to a lack of olfactory discrimination.
A study conducted by Diana Pet Food experts in palatability shows the interest of combining olfactometry with 2 bowls-tests to study dog food odor discrimination and preferences and interpret palatability results more precisely.
