Knowing the human age of his dog is not apparent, because it is not enough, as an urban legend says, to multiply his age by seven. The social period of the dog is not calculated from a fixed scale, because a year of his life, for him, will not have the same pace of old age at two years than at ten years.

HOW TO EVALUATE A DOG’S AGE?
The way to assess the age of a dog is quite random, but there is still a fairly reliable technique. To calculate the human age of the dog, it is not a question of multiplying by seven his dog age. The first year of life of the dog corresponds to 18 years for a human, and the figure decreases as one advance in age: the second year corresponds to six human years, then it is then necessary to add four each time.
THE AVERAGE LIFE OF A DOG
The average life span of a dog varies by race. Small breed dogs generally have a longer life (about 15 years) than larger dogs (about ten years). But the average life expectancy of a dog also varies according to his lifestyle: if the dog is used to being outside, he is frolicking, and he meets other dogs, his expectation of life will be shorter than the dog who stays home all the time and is less likely to get sick or fight with other dogs.
EQUIVALENCES BETWEEN THE AGE OF THE DOG AND THE HUMAN AGE
Here are some equivalences between the age of the dog and the human era, for a dog under 15 kg: 1 year> 20 years; 2 years> 28 years; 3 years> 32 years; 7 years old> 48 years old; 10 years> 60 years; 18 years old> 94 years old.
