How old is that in people years?

flapping earsLike myself I always had thought that you multiply people years by seven and then you know how old your dog is.  Well according to “Keeping Your Adult and Senior Dog Healthy” Hound Health Handbook by Betsy Brevitz, D.V.M. you may be surprised to hear that a dog’s relative age is based on his size:  small dogs mature faster but also live longer that large dogs.  So multiplying a dog’s age by seven isn’t accurate most of the time.  The table below provides a more preside reckoning of your dog’s relative age.

 Below is a chart to give you’re more insight to your canines true age.
