How can you tell how old a dog is?

Veterinarians need to examine the wear and tear on the teeth of a dog to offer a more precise determination of age, but for young dogs some basic rules can help determine how many months they are.  

Around one month the first teeth will appear in puppies. Between the fifth and seventh month the permanent teeth will come in with the molars typically being the final teeth to grow.

When the molars are present all the adult teeth are present.
