by Labbiemom A MUST-HAVE super durable toy for retriever owners!
Anybody who has a retriever or retriever mix knows what it's like to have a dog insistent upon carrying something in their mouth nearly everywhere they go. Sometimes it's one of their toys, but more often than not it's something they are not supposed to have. It can be a challenge to find a toy that isn't too heavy, large, or awkward in their mouths but this fits the bill.
This toy is the perfect shape/size for a large lab, golden, chessie, whatever! My boy LOVES running around the house and yard carrying his tire. He loves catching it mid-air and even tosses/chases it himself for amusement.
The tire is amazingly durable and we've had the same one for over a year; in fact, it's one of the only toys he hasn't been able to destroy (other than Goughnuts). Initially we tried to fill it with treats but as other reviewers said, it's a bit of a challenge for larger dogs to get the goodies out. Now we just use it as a regular toy and skip the treat-stuffing: he likes it just as much!

Rated 2 out of 5 by xombie Designed for heavy chewers- didn't stand up to my pup
My dog has an insane chewing reflex, wanting to chew on anything, so we have to make sure she has proper toys to chew on. I ordered this because it is designed for heavy chewers.
In less than a week, so had stripped the tread off the side of the tire, and now we've had to remove the toy because she is able to strip pieces off and I don't want her to swallow them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RJOdin Very durable
My Old English bulldog and my German shepherd love playing with this toy. It's stood up to rough games of tug of war and pretty much constant chewing from my shepherd. He loves to hold it in his mouth when they wrestle. He hasn't torn through it yet, which is always a good sign, and it doesn't show any signs or cracking or tearing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has a tough chewer!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Thurstybobo88 Dog has no interest
I purchased this toy for my dog because he is a very strong chewer and I know Kong makes good products. I also thought it was an interesting shape, which might attract my dog to play with it. My dog has absolutely no interest in this toy, whatsoever, and has not used it at all. Would not purchase again or recommend.

Our Kona is a terrier/lab mix, 45 lbs and loves to try to destroy her toys. This tire toy has had teeth ripped into it, it's been tossed around and has held up really well. I highly recommend this chew toy if you have a dog that likes to tear things up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JW1975 Smaller than I thought
This is a good tire, appears to be sturdy and may hold up to my heavy chewer. I got the one labeled "large". I would have to respectfully disagree. It is approximately the size of a small Bagel. I have a Labrador with excellent choppers- I would have hoped for a bigger tire for him to chew. But he still seems to enjoy it and I will continue to let him.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kevin97 much smaller then i thought
Great quality kong toy but if you are looking for a large tire this is not for you i would classify this as a small tire description is a bit deceiving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DexMom Product is way too small for a large dog
This tire toy was advertised for medium/large dogs. It is not suitable for large dogs.
