10 Secrets Your Dog Isn’t Telling You
…from modern dog magazine
#1 I’m not just taking my time
There is a reason why dogs spin around before going to the bathroom and it has nothing to do with endeavouring to make you late for work. A study published in the journal Frontiers in Zoology found that dogs poop in alignment with Earth’s magnetic field. After observing 70 dogs—made up of 37 breeds—over two years, a clear preference for an alignment with the north-south axis was documented, with the east-west avoided.
