Dogs: Man’s Best Friend, Super Sniffers, And Magnetic Compass When Pooping

Dog’s are amazing animals, one of natures most versatile and loving creatures. Their keen noses have been used to find everything from prey to drugs to bombs to people trapped under rubble. Their loving demeanor has made them one of the most beloved household pets the world over.

And now, researchers at the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague have found that when Rex is in the front yard, you know, doing his thing, he is actually aligning himself to the Earth’s north-south poles, suggesting that dogs are sensitive to magnetic fields. The stunning results were published in the journal Frontiers in Zoology

The researchers observed the pooping habits 70 dogs of 37 breeds 1893 times over a 2 year period and were done during calm electromagnetic field conditions.

Why do dogs align themselves with the Earth’s poles? What are the implications of the study? Why was the study even done? Who knows, and frankly, who cares. You got to read about dogs pooping, and that should be good enough.
