Note: This calculator give a rough estimate and may not be accurate. See a veterinarian for age related questions or any other health concerns for your pet.
This calculator determines the age of your dog in equivalent human years or calendar years by specific breed or weight range. This calculator uses dog lifespan data from Wikipedia for the conversion.
Dogs mature at different rates when compared to humans. During the first two years of life, dogs mature rapidly from childhood to adulthood. Typically, dogs will have an equivalent age of approximately fifteen years at one calendar year. At two calendar years, dog will have aged to twenty-four human years. After two years, a canine will age three to five dog years per calendar year.
This calculator allows the user to adjust the rate of aging during the first two years of the dogs life. It defaults to 15 years for the first year and 9 years for the second. The user can adjust these values under the options tab. This is useful to get more accurate results for extremely large or very small pets during the first two years.
Importantly, the conversion for dog years to human years is directly based on human life expectancy. Life expectancy varies by time in history, country and gender (male/female). For example, in 2011 Japan had an overall life expectancy of 83 years and Sierra Leone had a life expectancy of 47. See List of countries by life expectancy for more values. The worldwide average human life expectancy in 2011 was 67.88 years.
This calculator allows the user to adjust human life expectancy used in the calculations. This calculator defaults to sixty-eight years for human life expectancy. The operator can adjust this parameter under the options tab. This is helpful for determining equivalent dog ages in different regions of the world.
