How Old Is My Dog?… Use This Dog Age-Human Age Equivalent Chart

dog age facts found on computerYou’ve heard for years that to figure a dog’s age in “dog years” you should just add 7 to each year that your dog has been alive. That should give you the human equivalent of your dog’s age, right?


Thanks to¬†Vicki Davis, Executive Director of the Tri-County Humane Society, now you can accurately tell the age of your dog… in dog years.

She says this chart reflects the most accurate dog ages, compared to human ages:


Dog Age / Human Age
6 months10 years
8 months13 years
10 months14 years
12 months15 years
18 months20 years
2 years24 years
4 years32 years
6 years40 years
8 years48 years
10 years56 years
12 years64 years
14 years72 years
16 years80 years
18 years88 years
20 years96 years
21 years100 years


UPDATE: There’s a new dog age calculator that takes into consideration the dog’s breed!

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money -- so I frequently write about "outside the box" ideas that most wouldn't think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed several years until switching gears to pursue things I was more passionate about. I've worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo -- to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV. You can always find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun websites).
