Don't know where u got that from but I saw a document on this. They tested it and the dogs were able to follow the scent of a person without mixing it up with the persons identical twin.

They also tried to make the scent as identical as possible by making the 2 women (identical twins) sleep in the same bed for a night, use the same kind of clothes etc. but they just couldn't fool the dog.

So as far as those test went a dog can tell the difference.

Here, In Australia a g-string refers to what you call a thong... And a thong is like a sandal...
