A popular method says you should multiply the dogs age by 7 to compute how old Fido is in human years But new research published Thursday in the Cell Systems journal debunks that method.

To get it you need to take your dogs age and find its natural logarithm use this calculator for ease and multiply it by 16 before adding 31. A popular method says you should multiply the dogs age by 7 to compute how old Fido is in human years But new research published Thursday in the Cell Systems journal debunks that method. Voila a dog-to-human age translator.
