How to Determine Your Dog’s Age in “Dog Years”

How to Determine Your Dog's Age in Dog Years

Have You Ever Wondered How Old Your Dog Would be if They Were Human?

Contrary to popular belief, there are not exactly seven ‘dog years’ in a ‘human year.’ Since dogs live a shorter life than humans, they age more quickly. Even within the species of dogs, different breeds and sizes of dog’s age at different rates.

A two-year-old dog is generally considered to be an adult. We all know that this is definitely not the case with a two-year-old child. Once a dog is two, they are considered to be the equivalent of a 24-year-old human.

The Actual Age Can Vary Depending on Multiple Different Factors

 

The age of your dog in dog years may be different than another dog that was born at the same time. This is because larger dogs typically don’t live to be as old as smaller dogs. So, while a seven-year-old Chihuahua may only be 44 in dog years, a seven-year-old Great Dane will be more like 56 in dog years.
