|I think it also depends on the dog. I have had times with Okami where I was briefly teaching her something (teaching her to lay down on a specific mat on command), but I didn't do too much with it and after a short time I stopped training her with it. Yet almost six months later, when during this time I had not used this mat at all for anything, I brought it out and put it on the floor, turned my back for a moment, and when I came back there was Okami waiting patiently on the mat for a reward xP
Yet there is also my aunt's min pin mix. She's had this dog since she was a pup, and this dog is extremely attached to her, to the point where she has separation anxiety if my aunt leaves the room even for just a few minutes. Yet there have been several times when my aunt has left Skeeter with someone else for several weeks at a time for vacations/work travel/etc., and when she came back Skeeter growled at her, hardly recognized her, and took several days to a week to be comfortable around her again.
My aunt's dog may be a strange case for all I know, but it is interesting how some dogs remember things better while others do not.
