Generally until they are about a 1 year, but they are completely mature at the age of 2.

It really depends on the breed. Smaller dogs mature faster that large one. German Shepherds do not mature until they are about 2 1/2 to 3 years.

Most people consider dogs "puppies" until they are about one year old. At that point, they enter their teenage phase, which, depending on breed, can last until about 2 years of age - for giant breeds, such as Great Danes, even older.

Most breeds are fully grown by two years but may not be fully matured until three years. Most will "fill in" starting around 3 years of age.

I always been told that a puppy becomes an adult dog when it reached 2 years but i think that depends. I think physically by 2 years most dog breeds can breed by then.

Physically it's usually when they are about 2 years old. Thats usually when they stop getting taller and start filling out more.

But most dogs I know act like puppy's for life!
