|It does depend on the dog... For us, a couple of years ago, we passed a gentleman while walking who found Charks... worrisome. He tried to stare her down, which sent her into defensive mode. We gave him wide berth and I gave him a lecture. Sooo, a year and a half later we passed again in a different place and season. _I_ did not recognize him. Charka did She turned 180 and gave his hand a sniff/nudge. I reeled her in as he turned and whined, 'I didn't DO anything'. At that point I recognized him... I have not a clue what Charka's intent was... it wasn't overt hostile... exactly... but am happy I shortened the leash when I did. [IMHO] Based on an absolutely unusual response, SHE certainly remembered.
Or I could add where she has remembered people or dogs in more pleasant context a year or two later.
