    Default Study: Dogs Do Their Business Facing North or South

    Brian Shields

    When dogs relieve themselves, they tend to face north or south along the earth’s magnetic axis.
    That’s the conclusion of a new report published in the Frontiers in Zoology journal.
    “Dogs are sensitive to small variations of the Earth’s magnetic field,” the researchers write. “Dogs preferred to excrete with the body being aligned along the North-south axis.”

    Do they think it might come out sideways if they go any other way?

    Watching our dog with interest when she went out this evening - she faced south.

    Nope. Some dogs might do this, but ours faces west, east, south, whichever. She seems more interested in an "ideal" location rather than which direction she faces.
