Breaking: Your dog probably has a different age than you think



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."

You can use these helpful Tom Hanks charts to determine your pooch's age:
