What age is a dog considered a senior?

Is your dog getting slow, moving less and not the same pup you remember? She's older now, but at what age is your dog considered a senior? First we need to look at the lifespan of dogs to determine when they will receive their senior discount and pension benefits.

How long do dogs live?

Depending on your dog's breed, their golden years may be different. Small dogs live longer than larger dogs. Veterinary records compiled show that dogs under 20 pounds live to be 11.5 years on average while pups over 90 pounds lived to be 8 years. All other dogs will live to be 11 years on average.

Breeds that lives the longest.

  • Dachshunds, the famous “hot dog” dog can expect to live the longest, about 15 to 20 years.
  • Chihuahua
  • Toy Poodle
  • Beagle
  • Pomeranian

Dog breeds with the shortest lifespan.

  • Bernese Mountain Dog (7 years)
  • Great Dane
  • Mastiff
  • Irish Wolfhound
  • Newfoundland

Most vets consider a dog of 7.5 years and older to be a senior.

The endocannabinoid system in our bodies, and our dogs, controls mood, pain, cell production, energy and more. Our bodies all produce cannabinoids, but as we age or our health is compromised, our bodies will produce less cannabinoids. Cannabinoids like CBD can be a great supplement for senior dogs and their parents (you).
