So when does a puppy become an adult?

Is it once they are a year old or 5 years....I have no idea.

  • 2 years. Same as with a cat. They are supposed to mature by that point, but most continue to act like puppies for several years.

  • No clue. My dog is 11 years, and still acts like a brand new puppy (with more naps. lol)

  • around age two they usually settle down and loose some of that "puppy" energy - but not all dogs do
