Do Dogs Think About the Past?

Study determines if dogs get mad at you for what you did yesterday.

People have a remarkable ability to remember and recall events from the past, even when those events didn’t hold any particular importance at the time they occurred. Recognizing what we ate yesterday for breakfast or remembering who we talked to the week before is something that comes naturally to us humans; it’s called episodic memory. But pet parents often wonder, do dogs think about the past like I do?

Researchers in 2016 investigated this idea with a study on the topic of canine memory. In the journal Current Biology, the group published a report showing that dogs have that kind of “episodic memory” too.
