Now if I could just find a dog that would help me remember the names of the people that I meet…
The dogs succeeded in 33 of 35 trials. That suggests that , Fugazza and her team report today in . But the longer the canines wait, the more trouble they have recalling the action. That’s similar to human episodic memory, which decays at a faster rate when an event isn’t intentionally recorded, the researchers say. For instance, you’re more likely to remember your first kiss than a hug last week from your spouse.
Some people assume that dogs and cats aren’t capable of retaining memory over the years. Most people believe both species can only remember for a few minutes, at most.

A new study published yesterday (Nov.23) in reveals dogs can remember things even if they are not instructed to do. According to the , (pdf. pg.4) this “is the first evidence of episodic-like memory of others’ actions in a non-human species.”In order to test if the dog remembered the last action, the trainer then took it behind a screen for a minute. The change of scenery helped distract the dog since it tended to lie down on the mat as it was trained to do. This time, after the trainer said “do it,” the dog went to tap the umbrella instead of lying down.The specific part of “episodic-like memory” suggests that dogs are able to construct their memories with unique feelings, according to the scientists from MTA-ELTE Comparative Ethology Research Group and Eotvos Lorand University. In humans, , which lets them remember things at particular times and places, involves awareness of one’s self.Your dog remembers more than you might think. A new study that tested the memory of man’s best friend found that dogs exhibit something akin to episodic memory — a process that’s been well documented in humans, but difficult to prove in other animals.
