Finally say good bye to the compass from centuries past!



Say “NO MORE!” to those invasive GPS systems tracking your every move!



Simply watch your dog take a poop for all of your navigational needs!



Have a bad trip and got lost in the woods again? Fear no more!


Stare in amazement, as your dog takes a crap and leads you to safety time and time again!



Dogs use the Earth’s magnetic field when they’re relieving themselves. 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.

www.pbs.org...

All jokes aside, it's a pretty interesting study and conclusion. Dogs can sense the polarity of Earths magnetic field not the intensity, although the effect is broken if the field is calm. Here is the very detailed report for those interested in animal behavior science frontiersinzoology.biomedcentral.com... 2-9994-10-80

Disclamer: The author of this thread does not recommend using the above mentioned navigational method.

How can we tie this in to my dog running 120 mph afterwards for like 5 minutes?

It could be a sign of the impending magnetic pole reversal!

That would explain why it's in circles 🤔

Yes and also provides proof that the world is not flat but in fact, a globe.

My dog takes forever to poop. It's annoying. It's like she has to find the most perfect, magical spot to dump on.

Guess this study explains it... somewhat.

Dog parks are wormholes.

My dog doesn't fit in with this study.
I have watched my dog take a lot of craps in my backyard.
There is no lining up with the magnetic poles with him.
Sometimes his head is pointed north, but it is just as likely that his head is directed at any other compass point.

Stop watching him poop man

This thread gave me some immature chuckles


On a more serious note, i read somewhere that they found some magnetic molecules in the retina of birds implying they can actually see magnetic fields...

I wouldn't be surprised, if the future shows that the magnetic field is much more important to live on Earth and the overall way it evolves.

When I smoked cigarettes, I would stand out on the back porch while he did his business. He goes out back on a runner leash that slides on a steel cable attached to a pole at the other end of the yard, so it was kind of hard to miss it happening. Plus, it helps to scoop the poop if you know where he did the deed.

Pffft, they are the one's initiating eye contact.

Seriously though, there are a lot of theories on that alone... Like they're in a vulnerable moment, so they find comfort that their owner is keeping an eye out for them.

If I had to poop in the yard, I'd want a look out.
