How to work out a dogs age gives you the human equivalent in years. To work out the human age of a dog or other pets many people will multiply
their age by seven years. This is not that accurate dogs age calculator, as differing breeds of dogs will age at differing rates. For
example, many smaller breeds of dogs such as a west highland terrier will live well into their
late teens, whilst larger dogs may only live to about ten years. Most dogs will also mature faster
than their human equivalents. The how to work out a dogs age guidelines below will give you a better idea of how old your
dog is in human years:
A One Year Old Dog
Small Dog Breed - Will be 15 human years old.
Medium Sized Dog Breed - Will be 13 human years old.
Large Sized Dog Breed - Will be 12 human years old.
A Two Year Old Dog
Small Dog Breed - Will be 24 human years old.
Medium Sized Dog Breed - Will be 21 human years old.
Large Sized Dog Breed - Will be 19 human years old.
Thereafter for every actual year, add on 4 dog years for a small dog breed,
5 years for a medium dog breed or 7 years for a large dog breed.

Oldest Dog In The World
The oldest living dog in the 2012 Guinness World Records is male cross Pusuke whose owner is Shigeo Nagai from Japan. Pusuke is 25 years old and was born on the 1 April 1985.
The 2012 edition of the Guinness World Records cited the oldest dog ever as Bluey from Austria and was 29 years and 5 months when he died. He spent his life working with cattle and sheep.
Prior to this the world's oldest dog was Pusuke from Tokyo in Japan who was 26 years and 8 months when he died in December 2011. Pusuke was a fluffy tan Shiba mix and was owned by Yumiko Shinohara.
Britain's oldest living dog was called Fred (a Papillon) and reached the grand age
of 29. So in dogs age in human years using the above dogs age calculator Fred was 132 in human years.
In October 2009 the oldest dog in the world was confirmed as Otto Jones, a Dachshund Terrier. Otto was 20 years and 8 months. His owner said that Otto's
favourite food was Sunday roast and vegetables. Sadly Otto died in January 2010 after being put to sleep due to stomach cancer. Otto was 20 years and 11
months old. So in dog to human age, using the dos age calculator above, Otto was 96 human years old.
