An age-old belief held by dog lovers is that for every year of a dog’s life its age is equivalent to seven human years. Therefore on a puppy’s first birthday its age would be the same as a person who is age seven. When a dog reaches five years of age its human age would be thirty-five, right? Well, not really.
It turns out that different dogs age at different rates. A dogs “human” age depends on a number of factors, including its breed and physical size. This seems plausible because smaller breeds typically live longer than larger breeds. How long did your oldest dog live? Have you owned a dog who made it into their teens?
