Default Hello Chihuahua People

I was wondering if someone might be able to help.

I'm trying to find some research evidence for the bite force of a Chihuahua. I understand a Chihuahua can produce 3,900 PSI of pressure, and if they were the same size as other dogs then they would have the strongest bite.

Can anyone shed some light on this? I need some tight evidence for work purposes.

Regards,
Mike

Sorry, I don't think that there is much evidence about the bite force of a chihuahua! If I may ask, what is the 'work' that needs this kind of information?

Hi Susan,

Thank you for getting in touch. I'm finding research for a BBC documentary, which follows families as they introduce puppies and rescue dogs into their home.

Thank you for your response.

Mike

Here is something with references and based in science. Nobody measures bite pressure in PSI that I can see. Yes, if a Chihuahua was big, it would bite as strongly as a big dog. But they are small, so they don't. I would recommend you get the full articles referenced here and/or contact their authors. That is the way to avoid sensationalism.
