We estimate genetic age and calendar age (coming soon!)
Genetic age: First, we use your dog's reported calendar age and sex as a starting point. Our proprietary algorithm factors in breed breakdown (large dogs mature differently than smaller ones), genotype at size genes (more than 15 of them), and inbreeding coefficient. All of these have an effect on lifespan. The number we provide is where a dog is in his or her life relative to an average human living in the U.S.
In order to calculate your dog's genetic age, you'll need to enter in your dog's birthday (an estimate is fine!). How do I add or edit my dog's birthday?
Calendar or biological age: We are currently running an invite-only beta test right now for an age test and are aiming to launch it to everyone in Fall 2022.
