The heart beat rate varies depending on the size of the dog. Smaller dogs have a faster heart rate than larger breed dogs. The average ranges are from 70 beats per minute to 120 beats per minute. This can be higher or lower depending on the health of the dog and if it is in a very excited or stressed stage. I hope this helps.
