Experts believe that memories related to a dog’s survival are the ones that they remember best.
Strong emotions create better memories, so try to make training exciting for your dog. This will help your pet to learn commands faster and remember them for longer.

If your dog has many positive experiences with you, this will create a strong associative memory with your scent. If you were somehow separated from your furry friend for a long time, they’d still come running with joy once they smell you again.
The only thing that can disrupt their memories, sadly, is aging. As dogs become older, they can develop a type of doggy dementia known as Canine Cognitive Dysfunction.
