Yes you read this right! The BIG news in the world of Dog Poop today is the fact that dogs poop in alignment with the Earth's magnetic field! Not only that, but canines choose to do so in a north-south axis, a new study published in the journal Frontiers in Zoology says.
We measured the direction of the body axis in 70 dogs of 37 breeds during defecation (1,893 observations) and urination (5,582 observations) over a two-year period.
You can read the full report here or google poop alignment and get the scoop on the poop!
So next time whilst walking with your dog, hiking or visiting the beach with your dog, and you see him or her wiggling a little as if to find just the right comfortable footing and poise... what they are actually doing is aligning themselves with the earths magnetic field! Who would have guessed? Or want to impress your nearest and dearest or co-workers with your depth and breadth of knowledge? Well now you can by spouting this little known fact.
And don't forget, when you are out with your dog observing this fascinating feat don't forget to pick up your dogs 'strategically placed' poop and ideally pop in in one of our wonderful PoopPac Dog Walkers Bags; our award winning patented dog waste bag carrier and poop bad dispenser.
