Un perro paseando en círculos antes de hacer caca

Cuatro razones por las que verás a tu perro caminar en círculos antes de hacer caca

One of life's mysteries as a dog owner and something we see all the time! Why is it that our dog's often circle around a few times before having a poo? We've got a few theories....

 

Preparando el terreno

Your dog is tamping down the grass and chasing away any bugs or other creatures to give it a nice clean place to do its business. The circles allow your dog to get a good, clear view of the surrounding area to make sure there are no threats or predators near by when they are in such a vulnerable position.

 

Comprobación de limpieza

The dog is looking for scents from other creatures to see who else has been in the area. Dogs just like humans want a nice clean and hygienic place to do their business.

 

Hacer que las cosas se muevan

Some people say that the dog is going in circles to help stimulate the intestines to help bring on a bowel movement. Yes, there is a theory that the dog with its circle dancing action is actually helping to stimulate the need to go to the bathroom.

 

Comprobando que la fuerza está con ellos

Don’t laugh about this one but there is also a theory by researchers at a university in Prague that says dogs do this and then line their bodies up with the earth’s magnetic axis. Sounds crazy you say? Well like all kinds of other wacky research they actually spent two years and probably lots of money conducting this research so there's got to be something in it, right?!

Keep in mind that not all dogs do the circle ritual and it appears that not all dogs do it every time they need to go. If you have a dog that circles it is just part of the norm for dogs.

So why your dog does the circle dance before doing its business is probably not something that can be fully explained yet. However, it is not a behaviour that you should be worried about.

Our main concern is making sure our dog can find the exact right location for them to do their business by simply keeping moving, letting them stop and sniff when they like, until that perfect spot is located. The worst part is getting him or her to hurry so we can get in out of the rain, snow, cold or heat!

Do you have any theories about why dogs circle before having a poo? Is it something your dog does?
