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 months 10 years
8 months 13 years
10 months 14 years
12 months 15 years
18 months 20 years
2 years 24 years
4 years 32 years
6 years 40 years
8 years 48 years
10 years 56 years
12 years 64 years
14 years 72 years
16 years 80 years
18 years 88 years
20 years 96 years
21 years 100 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).
