Dog Age Calculator
Is my dog older than me? Let’s find out. Smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger dogs and may mature more quickly in the first few years of life. A large dog may mature slower at first but already be considered elderly at age five. Small and toy breeds don’t become “seniors” until around age 10. Medium sized breeds are somewhere in the middle in terms of maturation and
lifespan.
