Eh Dawg! No Woofing Now Really, How Old Are You?

       In some circles, fibbing about your age is customary.

       It is believed that all dogs have a mental age of a 3 to 5 year-old. It ain’t right to lie about your bitch’s age. How old are they?

       The old formula for obtaining the age of your dog was to multiply every year of a dog’s life by 7 human years.  Dog facts: but this method is not accurate. 

       A dog is fully grown at 12 months, which would be age 18 in human terms.  From this point on, to calculate the true age of your dog, figure that every dog year is the equivalent of five human years.

      Say your female dog was born five years ago… that would make your bitch  48 years-old, not 35.

     So no more woofing (lying) about your bitch’s age.
