Researchers from the Czech University of Life Sciences in Prague recently spent a two year period observing 70 canines while they 'did their business'. After watching 1,893 defecations and 5,582 urinations, the researchers came to the conclusion that dogs prefer to do their No.2s along the North-South axis under calm magnetic conditions. When the magnetic field was in flux, any directional behavior by the canine was absent.
This would explain why sometimes it takes forever for your Pooch to find just the right spot to relieve himself.
The results of this study prove that magnetic fields can impact animal behavior causing scientist to take the magnetic field into consideration when performing experiments. Biologists and Physicians will also have to consider the effects of magnetic storms and magnetic fluctuations on living organisms.
