The age of the dog is primarily determined by the condition of the teeth and the amount of gray hair on the head. It is clear that in appearance it is quite difficult to uniquely determine the age. In the same way, knowing how old the dog is, we cannot unambiguously determine the age of the dog in terms of human years. But we can definitely orient ourselves to which age group, by human standards, to attribute it to.
How to recalculate a dog’s age on a human?
The most common calculation, although not entirely true, is based on the fact that one canine year is equal to seven human years. In the first year of his life, the puppy grows and develops unusually quickly. Already in the second year of life, the level of development and physical shape of the pet corresponds to a teenager.

All at least once noticed the prints of dog paws in the snow, damp ground or in the wet sand. But few people wondered how many fingers a dog had. Of course, the owners of titled dogs definitely know the answer to this question, while the owners of the yard Watchdog hardly looked at the pet’s paws.
The number of fingers in dogs
In short, most doggies have five fingers on their forepaws (four of them are located next to each other – are grouped, the fifth is slightly higher). On the hind legs, usually 4 fingers. However, the number of fingers may vary. So, some people, when asked how many fingers a dog has on its forepaws, can call the numbers “5” or “4”.
The situation with the hind limbs is a little more complicated. Continue reading
