Why is line 4 a constructor but lines, 7, 10, 13, and possibly 16(?) methods?

class Dog extends Animal {

  int age;
    public Dog(int dogsAge){
    age = dogsAge;
  }
  public void bark() {
    System.out.println("Woof!");
  }
  public void run(int feet) {
    System.out.println("Your dog ran " + feet + " feet!");
  }
  public int getAge() {
    return age;
  }
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        
    Dog spike = new Dog(7);
    spike.bark();
    spike.run(600);
    int spikeAge = spike.getAge();
    System.out.println(spikeAge);
    spike.checkStatus();
    }
}
