Dog age in human years

Content of this page Content of this page

Age is relative.

In the same way as with humans, you should always bear this in mind when talking about age. That is because the actual age is not always equivalent to the biological age. Lifestyle habits, predispositions and the way of life therefore only permit estimates of the actual age to be made.
