Dogs Prefer to Poop Facing North-South Direction over East-West

With passage of time, list of researches is increasing, which shows that both wild and domestic animals can sense geometric field of earth. Their certain activities are certain influenced by earth's magnetic field.

Recently, a study has been carried out by a team of Czech and German scientists. As per them, it has been found that dogs prefer to poop along the Earth's North that is South Axis line. In order to reach at the above mentioned result, the study researchers have checked 1,893 poops of 70 dogs in two years.

After assessing the same, the scientists have reached at a conclusion that dogs are sensitive towards small changes in the earth's magnetic field. Such behaviour was not noticed in their urination activity.

But one thing was found that female dogs preferred urinating in north or south direction. It has been found that 37 different breed of dogs were assessed. For now, it is unknown as what dogs do the same.

Study researchers have suggested that there are chances that dogs are sensitive towards the magnetic field of earth. Another possible reason provided by them was that dogs feel more comfortable in certain direction and this might be the reason that they chose north-south direction over east-west direction.
