Dog Care Tips : How to Determine a Dog’s Age in Human Years
Let’s discuss how to determine your pet’s
age in human years. It was always thought
for a long time that a dog’s age in one year
would equal seven years of a human’s life.
And we know that now not to be true. Many
food companies, big food companies have developed
charts on their online sites that you can
look at to determine exactly or roughly how
old your pet is in human years, but what we
know is that larger breeds age faster than
smaller breeds. It’s pretty well known that
a one year old dog of any size is going to
be about fifteen years of age in human years.
A two year old dog is going to be about twenty-four
and so on. When you reach about your sixth
in a small, medium or large breed dog, that’s
when they diverge and larger breed dogs start
accumulating years faster. We know that to
be true. But look online. There are lots of
charts that are helpful. And to put that in
perspective for you.
