I picked up the table from FPIs page since the table is all same.
*) In this app, the age of Giant Dog in 7th and 10th calendar year does not match as that table. In that table, the age is 56 and 78. But in this app, 57 and 78. Because I wanted the dog's age to change linearly as much as possible to the calendar year.
|Calendar Years||Under 20 lbs (9 kg)||20-50 lbs (9-23 kg)||50-90 lbs (23-41kg)||Over 90 lbs (over 41 kg)|
It is difficult to uniformly determine the age of a dog. Some dogs will live much longer and age much more slowly than others. The key factors that determine how long a dog will live are:
- Dog Size. Small dogs live much longer than large dogs.
- Breed. Larger breeds generally have a shorter lifespan than smaller breeds.
- Gender. As in humans, on average females live longer than males.
- Neutering. Neutered dogs tend to live longer than intact dogs.
- Living conditions.
- Individual characteristics.
That table shows us that small dogs mature faster than large dogs. But after becoming an adult dog, small dogs are getting old slowly.
That is figured like this:
*) Blue Line ...... smaller dogs, Red Line ...... larger dogs
