Study Finds a Dog Year Doesn't Equal 7 Human Years, Makes Graph to Learn Your Dog's True Age https://t.co/XyAEwMpzDp— People (@people) July 6, 2020
It turns out that dogs' ages are not a 1:7 ratio with human years. Scientists have discovered a new method of estimating dogs' aging, and it is very different. Dogs age rapidly in the first few years of life. Then, their maturation slows. For example:
"A one-year-old dog is similar to a 30-year-old human. A four-year-old dog is similar to a 52-year-old human. Then by seven years old, dog aging slows."
