  • Detection can be difficult if the distance between the eyes and tip of nose is comparatively long (dogs with long nose can be difficult to detect when shooting down from an angle).
  • Dection of cats with thin faces can be difficult.

Coat:

  • Detection of dogs with hair covering the eyes, nose or entire face can be difficult.
