Dog Tyre as toys!

Post by AzzynCav on Mon Apr 02 2012, 19:36

I have seen on a few places that people use tyres as toys and they are obviously very sturdy and fairly wreck proof. I wanted to get Tia a tyre but i dont have a huge garden so I bought this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tyre-120-x-50-x9-petrol-Quad-Atv-midi-bike-/230761565733?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts&hash=item35ba760e25

Tia loves it and the tyre its self is far smaller than a full size one, its because its basically a smalller motorbike tyre.

Tyre as toys! Svnbep

When we got Tia, she came with a "toy tyre" that didnt last but cost the same as this one lol.

just if anybodys interested Big Grin

Just be careful, some, not all tyres have wire in them as part of the inner wall. Wouldn't personally use one, though i know of a few who do with various dogs.

good point about the wire ! My 2 only ever pushed it around and ran around with it over their heads Laughing I certainly would never let my dog lie around chewing and chewing on it!

Thinking about getting Zeus one of these tyres.. I have a question though, are they non-toxic? I've had a look at the Ancol Dog Tyres and they're non toxic, so even if he does get through it and eats some of it, nothing should happen to him. Just wanted to know if normal car/bike/quad tyres are the same?

I'm sure car tyres etc aren't good as they have steel braids through them which can become exposed! IIRC wheelbarrow tyres don't have the steel through them but unsure!

So i've decided to give it a miss with getting an actual tyre for zeus to play with. Instead, i went for this:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/DOG-CHEW-TOY-Favorite-Survivor/dp/B004X75C4A/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1346681962&sr=8-3

Managed to get it for a tenner off eBay so will keep you all informed on how it went!
