Is Your Dog’s Poop Dance More Accurate Than Google Maps?

Forget about GPS and start lookin' for some crafty ideas on Pinterest to repurpose your compass because all you need to find your way from here on out is dog poop ...


You heard right. Dog poo.


According to a research paper published in the journal Frontiers in Zoology , dogs "preferred to excrete with the body being aligned along the North-south axis under calm MF (magnetic field) conditions."


However, the poo-as-compass method is not always 100% accurate. If the Earth's magnetic field is disturbed - or, y'know, your pup decides to chase a squirrel mid-squat - you're better off sticking with Google Maps.
