Dogs And Human Ages

Although humans live approximately seven times as long as most dogs, the old seven dog years to one human year is no longer applicable. It’s easy to see that a six month old puppy is much more in control of its life than a six month old human baby. Dogs reach peak maturity quickly and slow down, while humans age at a much slower pace. Which means that at age three, you’re looking at a dog who’s all grown up by human standards. The new accepted comparisons of ages between dogs and humans are now as follows:

1 Year  15 Years 
2 Years  24 Years 
3 Years  28 years 
4 Years  32 Years

6 Years  40 Years 
7 Years  44 Years 
8 Years  48 Years 
9 Years  52 Years 
10 Years  56 Years 
11 Years  60 Years 
12 Years  64 Years 
13 Years  68 Years 
14 Years  72 Years 
15 Years  76 Years 
16 Years  80 Years 
17 Years  84 Years 
18 Years  88 Years 
19 Years  92 Years
