The defecation records of several dogs and litters in the laboratory colony of the Roscoe B. Jackson Memorial Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, were studied for periods varying from 12 to 47 days. The position of the fecal deposits in each cage was recorded daily. The results were examined in terms of regularity of area selected, the restriction of area, etc. Factors of importance seemed to be: (1) age and development of the subjects, (2) access to other areas for defecation, and (3) cage conditions. Several variables for further study were indicated.
