Re: Dogs Poop in Alignment with Earth's Magnetic Field
Scientists have recently discovered that the red fox also uses the Earth's magnetic field when hunting prey. The odds of a red fox catching a mouse buried beneath the snow rise to nearly 75 perfect if the predator is facing north. The fox uses the invisible magnetic field of the planet to triangulate and home in on its prey, buried in up to 3 feet of snow, from 18 feet away.

Re: Dogs Poop in Alignment with Earth's Magnetic Field
Dogs seem to have an awful lot of ritual before hunkering down and soiling the sidewalk. It’s not uncommon to see a dog owner—plastic bag in hand—rolling his eyes as his furry companion sniffs and spins, getting just so before hunkering down to do the least considerate thing possible.

But for whatever its worth, all that spinning is far from arbitrary. What dog owners witness is a small and furry version of the aurora borealis and a link between species and environment that’s as holistic and beautiful as a dog pooping can be. A team of Czech and German researchers found that dogs actually align themselves with the Earth’s magnetic field when they poop.

Proving at least that they’re really devoted to their work, the researchers measured the direction of the body axis of 70 dogs from 37 breeds during 1,893 defecations and 5,582 urinations over the course of two years, and found that dogs “prefer to excrete with the body being aligned along the North-south axis under calm magnetic field conditions.” They fittingly published their results in the journal Frontiers in Zoology.

Re: Dogs Poop in Alignment with Earth's Magnetic Field
Why, I'm practically salivating over this new data!



When our dog was young, I actually made a spread sheet (insert pun here) of her daily defecations. I think the average was about 4X daily. I do not recall seeing any particular orientations, however, did seem to notice that if there was any 'interest' in the area, that was the position most likely facing.

Definitely agree with the 'ritual' part.

I think it's dominance. The less dominant dog tries to hide it's shit further away.

Re: Dogs Poop in Alignment with Earth's Magnetic Field
Actually, the reason behind this probaly has less to do with the magnetic field of the Earth, and more to do with survival instinct. Defecation and sleep are two periods when an animal is at its most vulnerable. If you do either of these actions facing east-west, there is more of a chance of being blinded by the sun and being taken by surprise by a predator. Facing North-south would lessen the likely hood of not being aware of danger...

Hmmm interesting, I thought maybe it was because the smaller dogs didn't want potentially dangerous critters (to them) to know they were in the house.

Like a decoy....we live in the country, and I know there are coyotes, fox around.

So when my shitzoo does his patented spin move ( he's really good ) he is shitting due north? That means that if I take him with me deep in the woods without a compass I can find my way home? just sayin....lol

DoorBert,

This is incredibly useful info. The next time I have a surveying project, I will take AL the wonder dog with me. Al's poo will be useful in determining the exact azimuth of magnetic north.

Re: Dogs Poop in Alignment with Earth's Magnetic Field
Now we're talking my language - Shit!

This has me inrigued. I have to wonder now whether other animals do the same thing? Horses don't seem to, they just keep on shitting wherever.

Also, if this is the case maybe we should do the same?

Our 'other' senses are lost. Humans are the only animal on Earth that when faced with the 'dark alley', senses danger but goes in regardless.

Ask any spiritually aware person, they'll agree that your shit is the bad energy out. Maybe we should aim for Washington?

Seriously though, we're part of this planet and not in tune with it. It may be beneficial to align for a dump.
