Dog Memory

What kind of memory do dogs possess? Dogs' long-term memory is very different from ours. We store information about events or episodes we've experienced (episodic memory) and by recall of general facts (semantic memory). A dog remembers by associating a specific activity with what they see, smell or hear or whether they have a positive or negative memory of it (associative memory). Humans should incorporate what we know about dogs' memory when they train, discipline and interact with their dogs to not only shape their behavior but to also build stronger bonds with them.
