Calculate Age in Dog Years (Correctly)

Mom loves Dogster; they’ve got a great new article on How To Correctly Calculate Age in Dog Years. I guess the old notion of 7 dog years for every one human year is not correct. The more accurate way to calculate how old your dog is (in dog years) can be done using the easy “wheel” below.

For example, a large breed dog like a 10 year old Great Dane would be 80 in “dog years.” They also quote an example of a small breed dog (Pug) at 10 would only be 64 in “dog years.”

Full credit goes to Dogster for posting the original chart and article. I didn’t know how long it would be actively linked over at Dogster so I am copying the info here as well. Have fun with it!
