The Mammoth TireBiter That Could
The Mammoth TireBiter dog toy is a classic tire for your dog. It can be tossed or rolled as a fetch toy and also be used as chew toy. Is it right for your dog’s needs? Let’s find out.
Quality & Durability
Initially this was a great toy for my puppy Rottweiler at 9 months old. It was small enough for him at the time that he could pick it up and would donut around Eli’s snout as he walked around, it was adorable! It was durable enough that he could chew it constantly during his teething stage and loved it so much he would sometimes sleep on it.
Eventually, though, once Eli became fully grown and we got him the large version, he learned that he could start tearing chunks from the edges eventually destroying both of them. If you’re interested you can read more about the large TireBiter and see photos of what happened to it.

It is a classic tire that you picture a dog to play with especially Rotties. It feels and looks good and even has paw prints for the tread of the tire. It can be tossed and rolled and if your dog is feeling frisky he/she will bring it to you to play tug with them.back to menu ↑
This TireBiter has decent value and can last a very long time under the right conditions. While eventually it did not stand up my dog’s chewing needs as an adult it stayed completely intact for over a year with no signs of wear at all. It was only until my dog became a fully grown power chewer with the bite force that comes with an adult Rottweiler (I’m sure it will be similar with Pitbulls and Malteses) that the tire started disintegrating into chunks.back to menu ↑
For the right sized dog and chew type this sized tire is quite safe. Since it is much more compact than the large version it feels a lot more rigid and durable. Just be sure to look for signs of the tire walls starting to shred or chunks going missing, that is usually the first part to go and a sign that your dog is starting to outgrow the toy.
Indoor: Very light and very low risk of knocking stuff off tables or causing damage.
Outdoor: If taken outdoors it will collect dirt and water / moisture so I recommend cleaning regularly and thoroughly and also if it’s being brought back in the house.back to menu ↑
I have fond memories of this toy while it lasted but my large dog as an adult eventually outgrew this toy. I may look for a larger more heavy-duty version in the future. As is, however, this toy did not hold up and eventually you’ll be picking up little black chunks constantly if you too have a large chewing dog, finding them in the most interesting places and/or your dog will be using the bits like chewing gum. Under supervision, I would only recommend this for small to medium dogs, and for aggressive chewers but not power chewers.back to menu ↑
I think for average sized dogs without intense bite force or aren’t big power chewers that this toy can last for a very long time and can be a great chew/fetch toy.
- A dog-safe tire for fetching, chewing, tugging etc.
- Can collect dirt
- Can eventually shred with power chewers
