You’ve probably heard the dog to human age calculation that says every dog year is worth seven human years. On this basis you'd believe that a 10 year old Alaskan Malamute is the equivalent of a 70 year old human, right? Wrong! The 1:7 dog years comparison is a myth and it's wrong for two reasons.
The first year or two years of a dog's life represent some 18–25 years, rather than 7 or 14 as the 1:7 ratio would have you believe. And the second reason it's wrong is because it varies depending on a dog's size and breed.
Inside this special eBook, we’ve put together a simple human to dog age calculator for you to work out how old your dog really is based on their age and size to give you a more accurate comparison, sharing advice from experts about what it all means whether your dog's a puppy or advancing in years.
So, are you ready to bust some myths and discover your dog's true age (and what it all means)?
