Dog Age Calculator

Simple dog age calculator, not so simple.

Have you ever wondered how old your Miniature Schnauzer is in human years? We learn as children this easy dog age calculation:

The age of your dog x 7 = Your dog's age in human years

...but that is not exactly right.

Dogs actually age much more quickly in the first two years of their lives. Plus for them, this is one of those cases where size does matter. Smaller breeds don't age quite as fast as larger breeds. This is good for us Mini Schnauzer owners.

So since it is a bit more complicated than multiplying by 7 we have a fun Dog Age Calculator that will figure it out for you. You can use it to see how old your Miniature Schnauzer would be if she turned into human one day or you can calculate how old you would be if you were turned into a dog. LOL!

Calculate Dog Years to Human Years

A 5 year old dog is on average
the age of a 33 year old man.

Want to find out your dog's age? Visit:

and type in your dog's age & click calculate for human years OR use the down arrow to put in your age & calculate for dog years!

And for those of you who may have found a dog or adopted a dog from a shelter or rescue there are many ways you can determine how old your dog is too. As a dog gets older their physical characteristics change just as ours do. They may not get wrinkles but dogs have some telling signs of age:

  • Teeth: The better the teeth – the younger the dog.
  • Coat: Look for graying around areas of the face especially.
  • Eyes: As a dog ages their eyes become less bright.
  • Muscle Tone: Younger dogs usually have better muscle tone and higher energy levels.

The really good news for our aging pets is that due to better dog health care and quality nutrition, our dogs are living longer.

So keep up the good work! Give your Miniature Schnauzer the very best dog food, canine supplements, exercise your dog regularly, provide your dog mental stimulation, and most importantly lots and lots of love and you both will live longer happier lives!
