how long does a dog remember what he did wrong?

0 votes
when my dog is being scolded, we'll say "bad dog," and do things like that, and when it's really awful, then we'll ignore him and give him total silent treatment-- time depending on what he did. this makes him feel really bad. we won't even use his name, we just refer to him as "W."

my question is: does this even make a difference to the dog? i mean, he definitely feels bad and gets that he did something wrong... but after how long does he forget why he's being punished? if we were still ignoring him after 5 hours, or what if it was overnight, would he remember the next day why he's being punished?

He can tell by the tone in your voice, your facial expressions and your posture that you are angry, but he doesn't understand WHY. Dogs do not have the ability to reason. Only catching him "in the act" will he be able to understand. Not 5 minutes later or the day after.
