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

Dachshunds, for example, will be 15 in dog years by the time they are one year old. By the time they are two, they are the equivalent of 24 human years. From then on, it’s four human years per every Dachshund year.

To help you develop a better understanding of how old different sizes of dogs may be, refer to the following chart.  We picked a few different ages (in human years), so you can compare how old different breeds of dogs are in dog years.
