It is hard to pinpoint exactly when dogs were domesticated, since it happened a long time ago, but we have a ball park estimate. They were most likely domesticated between 17,000 to 14,000 years ago. This is supported by evidence that dogs genetically diverged from their wolf ancestors about 15,000 years ago.
Hope this helps!
Archeological findings currently show that the earliest possible domestication was as many as 31,700 years ago based on the oldest found dog. The second oldest dog is dated at 14,000 years ago. Archeologists know with certainty that dogs were domesticated by 7,000 years ago.
