Liz, do you have a source for this? Or is it more from personal observation? As a first time spoo-owner, I’m very interested!I know spoos are considered Seniors at age 5. Yes, 5 years old. I think most owners of a healthy 5 year old spoo would disagree, but to see early signs of aging in a spoo at age 8 is probably within the norm. How this translates to the other poodle varieties is a mystery to me.
I was able to find this:
“Small dogs are considered senior citizens of the canine community when they reach 11 years of age. Their medium sized friends become seniors at 10 years of age. Their larger sized colleagues are seniors at 8 years of age. And, finally, their giant-breed counterparts are seniors at 7 years old.”
Comparing your human age to your furry friend's canine age is rather complicated, but, simply put, one year to Fido is not one year to you.
