Have you ever wondered how old your dog is in human years?  You can find out by using the chart below to figure it out.  Just find your dogs age ( how old he is now) and look to the right to see how old he would be as a human.
 

Age Comparison Chart for Dogs
Real Age of Dog Human years
3 months 5 years
6 months 10 years
1 year 15 years
2 years 24 years
4 years 32 years
6 years 40 years
8 years 48 years
10 years 56 years
14 years 72 years
18 years 88-91 years *
20 years 91-96 years*
21 years 96-106 years*

*sources differ on the later years

This chart is based on tooth and bone growth, sexual maturity and other factors related to maturity.  It is not exact but is a good comparison.  Larger breeds of dogs have a shorter life span than smaller dogs, and a small dog may mature more quickly in the first few years than a large dog would.
