Mental representation and episodic-like memory of own actions in dogs
TLDR
The combined evidence of representing own actions and using episodic-like memory to recall them suggests a far more complex representation of a key feature of the self than previously attributed to dogs.
[Studying episodic memory : dogs as a biological model ?]
TLDR
It is shown that, even if dogs are a social species whose specificities should reveal the existence of an episodic-like memory, dogs remember who and what happened but no study evidenced yet that they remember the precise time it was done.
Episodic-like Memory in Dogs : Solving What-Where-When Tasks
TLDR
Findings suggest that dogs can encode ELM, can flexibly use WWW memory on unpredictable tests, and can solve a similar what-where task without odours.

Incidental spatial memory in the domestic dog (Canis familiaris)
TLDR
It is found that domestic dogs in this study showed no evidence that they encoded spatial location in the absence of other cues that could be used to distinguish food bowls at specific locations, which suggests that dogs in previous experiments were more dependent on incidentally encoding the “what” and “in what” of this task than the ”where,” in the presence of features making each location distinct.
Rethinking the definition of episodic memory.

TLDR
The definition of episodic memory is reconsidered based on objective criteria based on work with nonhuman animals, and considerations are drawn from converging evidence from cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and cognitive neuroscience.
Dogs (Canis familiaris) use odor cues to show episodic-like memory for what, where, and when.
TLDR
Tests revealed that dogs performed optimally when all three components of what-where-when memory were available for encoding and could flexibly use this information on unpredictable tests, and showed that dogs remembered what, where, and when.

Validation of a rodent model of episodic memory
TLDR
The behavioral methods for modeling episodic memory may have broad application for assessments of genetic, neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological bases of both episodicMemory and memory disorders such as those that occur in Alzheimer’s disease.
Deferred imitation and declarative memory in domestic dogs
TLDR
The ability to imitate a novel action after a delay without previous practice suggests presence of declarative memory in dogs.

Episodic-like memory in pigeons
TLDR
P pigeons demonstrated that they could remember specific details about their past experiences, a result consistent with the notion that they have the capacity for forming episodic-like memories.
Episodic-like Memory in the Rat
Do as I … Did! Long-term memory of imitative actions in dogs (Canis familiaris)
TLDR
Imitative performance of dogs remained consistently high independent of increasing retention intervals, supporting the idea that dogs are able to retain mental representations of human actions for an extended period of time.

TLDR
There is growing evidence that nonhuman animals have some of this capacity as well, and according to Tulving's more recent definition of mental time-travel, several animals have been shown to be able to pass the spoon test.
