The normal heart rate for a dog will vary depending on its size. For smaller dogs, the heart rate will be faster than a larger dog. Dogs weighing less than 30 pounds tend to have a heart rate between 100-160 beats a minute. Dogs larger than that are typically between 60-100 beats per minute.

Depending upon the size, health, and age of the dog, a normal canine heart rate is between 70 and 160 beats per minute. Larger breeds in good health have slower heart rates, while smaller breeds have faster heart rates. Compromised health can alter this in either direction.
