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!
