It’s a common misconception that one dog year equals seven human years.  But this is not entirely accurate.  The ratio between dog years and human years is higher in younger pups and decreases a bit as the dog ages.  For example, a dog can experience the hormones of adolescence anywhere from eight months to two years or more.  This chart gives you a quick glimpse at the breakdown of dog years to human years.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the oldest living dog was an Australian Cattle Dog, named Bluey, who lived to be 29.  That’s the equivalent of over 105 years old in human life.

But no matter if your dog is an unruly “teenager” or moving gracefully into “middle age”, Havahart Wireless wireless dog fences are a great way to keep them safe and happy.
