If I leave my Dalmatian dog for a year...will he forget me?
Nope :) dogs don't forget scent. This lady had to give up her pitbull and she didn't see him for 8 years. When she finally found him again he was so incredibly happy, he didn't care about anything else in the world but her ;)Dogs love their owners
No, as long as your not abandoning him. I hope someone is watching your dog for that year. A dog will remember you if your only gone for a year.
No. Just assign or ask someone to watch and treat your dog way you do.
No, because dogs memorize your smell that's why it will not forget you.
No! He will not forget you. He will probably bond with his caregiver during the year that you're gone, but when you return he will greet you as if you had risen from the dead! Hallelujah!
