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.
