How do you know how old a dog is in human years? And how do you know how old a human is in dog year?
I have always been told that a dog is actually 7 years old for every year of his life. If that is the case, you would multiply 7xthe number of years that it is since he was born.
This chart should answer both questions. ;-)
If my dog is 2 year old, how old would he be in human years?

How old is my dog if she 1 year old.
Editor's Note: The old way was 7 years for each 1 year of age. Here's a calculator, but there are many differences in breeds, size, health, etc. onlineconversion.com (09/16/2008)
What I am going to say is the same as what Debbie wrote so carry on reading OK? The answer of 5.25 years old is correct. 1 dog year = 7 human years, 9 months old is .75 or 3/4 of a year so, .75 x 7 = 5.25 human years old. (11/22/2008)
Here's the most accurate chart I have found.

Hi Kathy :) What a cute dog! My calculations say he is about 5.25 years old in "human years". (04/23/2007)
The old saying about a year in a dog's life being equal to 7 years in a human's life is just an old wives tale. Comparing your dogs are in human years depends on a number of things. Small dogs tend to live longer than large dogs for one thing. For another, your dog's health and lifestyle also make a difference. If you want to know, I would speak to your vet and get their opinion. What a cutie! I'm sure you just love you dog! (04/25/2007)
The answer of 5.25 years old is correct.
1 dog year = 7 human years
9 months old is .75 or 3/4 of a year so....
.75 x 7 = 5.25 human years old (04/25/2007)
On the back of the vet reminder I just received, the ages start at 1 year of age.
For a dog under 20 pounds, at 1 year old, the dog would be 7-12 years old in human years. When the dog is 2, the human years goes to 19.
Hope this helps.
