In the clip filmed in January, Bear’s owner, Ms. Gloss, asks her pet, “We’re going to do your toys, aren’t we? Where’s your dinosaur?” Bear quickly surveys the toys spread out on the floor and, with excitement, selects the dinosaur and brings it to his owner.

As the memory demonstration continues, Bear successfully identifies the names of various toys including a pig, camel, snake, lobster, crocodile, dachshund, and a walrus. Ms. Gloss then praises him, saying “Bear, high five, good boy!

Bear’s remarkable ability is a testament to the amazing potential of dogs when given proper training and attention

As per the daily mail a study involving 42 dogs, published in Biology Letters, revealed that dogs have the ability to differentiate between various accents, ranging from the Queen’s English to the distinctive West Country twang. During the experiment, four different people were recorded saying the same word followed by a slightly different word. The researchers observed that the dogs reacted strongly when the word changed, turning their head sharply and looking at the source of the voice for a longer period, indicating they were aware that the sound was different from the others.

According to Dr. Holly Root-Gutteridge, the lead author of the study from the University of Sussex, “These results show that dogs have more advanced language skills than we give them credit for, and I actually know dogs that can respond to 75 different commands.” She explains that dogs likely developed the ability to distinguish between barks of other dogs in order to gauge their size, and then started paying attention to human language after being domesticated
