A Better 'Dog Years' Calculation Is Presented by Researchers. Dog lovers likely know the old adage that one dog year is equal to seven human years. Researchers from UCSD have shown that this measurement is a bit arbitrary. . They studied the age indicator molecules attached to the DNA of 104 Labrador retrievers. They discovered that the rate of aging in the adolescent and mature Labs was much faster than in humans. Younger and older Labs, though, aged at a rate that is more similar to humans. In other words, a 5-year-old dog is about as old as a 57-year-old human. . But a 6-year-old dog's aging has slowed. This dog is about as old as a 60-year-old human. Researchers note that because only Labs were studied, the human age equivalent of other breeds could be different. Dog owners can use the 'Science Magazine' online dog age calculator to discover the human age of their pet
