Dogs seem to always be spinning, whether it be chasing their tails, looking for a place to go to the bathroom, or just looking for the absolute perfect spot next to you on the couch. You might even get dizzy watching them turning in circles all the time but have you ever wondered why they spin, especially when they go to poop?

The video below offers up some of the current theories on why our dogs like to have the spins before they do anything. These theories range from the practical theories taking in account life before domestication, to more developed theories involving the magnetic sphere.

Believe it or not, your dog may poop in a specific direction due to the current state of the magnetic sphere but it may change when there’s solar fares. That’s a pretty cool theory!

Whatever the truth is, one thing is for sure, our dogs love to spin and if you don’t get dizzy from watching it, they can be pretty hilarious. Watch the video below and then observe your own dog’s bathroom regime to see if you notice anything.
