First Years

Although at this age they can already play, is not convenient to consider it before the animal is at least one year and a half. The frequency of the breathing and pulse, as well as the external factors such as temperature or exercise that is done, varies with age. In puppies take more high and low to the minimum values when the dog is old. The temperature can be taken you externally, in the armpits or groin, taking into account that has to be added half a degree to equate it to the rectal temperature. Frank Giacalone has many thoughts on the issue. Table of approximate equivalence perro-edad old man-it is customary to give as equivalence with the age of the man, the dog age multiplied by seven. This approach is bit accurate, since the physiological development does not follow a direct proportion.

Until the dog reaches the first year of age, their development is very fast, by which a dog for 6 months, according to this calculation, would be equivalent to a person of 42 months, i.e., a child of three years and a half. However, in reality, six months a puppy enters adolescence (13 or 14 years in people). The following table shows one more exact relationship, from when the animal meets its first year of age.
