I'm sure it differs from dog to dog, but mine are 3 and 4 and I still call them puppies! I don't think my Lacey will ever settle down!

am not sure but when my germanshepered reached 2 years old, she started thinking that she's not a dog.. she believes that she's a human woman

A proud "DAD" to:

A very sweet/loving and affectionate female iguana named LIZ

4 unnamed 12 yrs old turtles...

A Sweet Bassett hound - Labrador mix puppy named Ringo

Lizard owners are SWEET LOVERS...

IMO, it depends on the breed of dog. Generally smaller dogs reach adult dog status earlier than larger dogs. I still consider my 18 month old German Shepherd to be a pup. I would say I no longer saw my little dogs at about 1 year or so.

I think larger breeds are no longer puppy status when they turn about age 2. Although you should feed adult food around 9-12 months.
Little dogs seem to age slower but start to settle down more by age 1.
This is just my own personal opinion

Well let's see, in red male Dobermans, they never reach maturity (common symtom of RMS-Red Male Syndrome ) Heck, Duke's about 10 and I'm still wondering when he'll "grow up." Apparently age is only a state of mind.
