Nope, One Dog Year Isn’t Equivalent To Seven Human Years

Wait, what?

if you’ve been calculating your dog’s age by simply multiplying every year they’ve been alive by seven, you’ve been wasting your time.

One human year isn’t equivalent to seven doggie years. Our canine chums actually age faster during the first two years of their lives than humans do; that’s why your little pups seem to reach sexual maturity so soon.

So dogs age faster at the beginning of their lives and slower towards the end. How they age depends on the size of the dog…

But science alert has come up with a table to help you calculate with a little more accuracy, according to your pet’s size.
