Have you ever wondered why your dog spins in circles? If so, then watch this video to learn some theories about this common canine behavior.
One theory about why dogs spin before they poop is that they are aligning themselves with the earth’s magnetic field using magnetoception. It’s also theorized that dogs do this to prevent waste from getting on their fur or allow their scent to spread farther. Additionally, in the wild, dogs spin in a circle before going to sleep to push down the underbrush, pack down snow, and scare away snakes and other critters to give themselves a safe spot to sleep in.
