Introduction: What is the Bite Force of a Chihuahua?
Chihuahuas are actually some of the most vicious dogs in the world. But this has largely to do with the fact that they are so small. If you take into account their size, they are actually not that bad as they have a medium-sized bite force, which is about a half of that of a Labrador. This is based on a study at Georgia State University which took into account the bite force of various animals, including various dogs and cats. The researchers at Georgia State University focused on four animals in particular, including a chihuahua, a Saint Bernard, a German Shepherd and a Labrador. They used various data including the weight of these four animals and the amount of force they put into their jaws to determine the bite force of these animals.
How Did the Bite Force of a Chihuahua Change throughout History?
As mentioned earlier, the Chihuahua has been around since the year 500 BC. And throughout the years, their bite force has increased a little bit and then gradually decreased over time. In the beginning, it was about 2124 pounds of force back in 500 BC to about 3580 pounds of force today. But then it reached its peak in 1978 where it was 3356 pounds of those kinds of forces. And from there on, it gradually decreased until it was at only 3310 pounds in 2011. 
But over the last few decades, we’ve seen a lot of changes within the Chihuahua and that’s because of a lot of technology being introduced to them. It’s not just the food or anything like that. It’s really about what they’re surrounded by and this is what we’re going to be looking at today. Today, we’re going to take a look at exactly how they’ve changed throughout history, their bite force and all kinds of things that surround them from their environment and in other words, their surroundings.
The first thing we’re going to take a look at is their bite force. At the beginning, they only had a bite force of about 2124 pounds of force. Now this was back in the year 500 BC. But now it seems like it’s increased a little bit more and now has 3356 pounds of bite force, which was back in 1978. But as time went on, it decreased to 3310 in 2011.
What Other Types of Dogs have a More Powerful Bite Force than a Chihuahua?
As previously mentioned, Chihuahuas are actually not that bad, as they have a bite force of about 3310 pounds. But there are other dogs who have more powerful bites than these dogs. And then there are dogs who have less powerful bites too. The dog with the most powerful bite force is actually the Mastiff, which has a bite force of 6000 pounds of force. And the least powerful dog is the Pomeranian, which has a bite force of only 640 pounds of force.

What is the Highest Recorded Bite Force by an Animal in History?
So far, the highest recorded bite force is that of a Siberian Tiger. A Siberian Tiger has a bite force of 6629 pounds. This was recorded in an experiment done by a group from the University of Minnesota. This was done on a domestic cat who had been injected with various drugs that increased its pain threshold, thereby increasing its pain tolerance and then having to withstand cold temperature. In this experiment, the cat was put through various Ice water stimuli for 30 seconds at increments of 6 seconds up to 15 minutes. After that, the cat’s pain tolerance was observed. And then the force used by the Siberian Tiger to break down a solid wood post was also recorded. The resulting data showed that a Siberian Tiger has a bite force of 6629 pounds of force.

So far, the Chihuahua has been around for a long time, and they are popular all over the world. So that is why you should not go in for other types of dog breeds when you want to own a Chihuahua. You might think that it is better to have a dog that can fight off wolves or other animals and what not. But this is just not the case at all. It is actually better to have a Chihuahua. A Chihuahua is very cute and small. And it will not be a threat to you at all if you have this kind of dog as your pet. If you want proof, just look at the bites per capita in America per year: it’s only 4 bites for every 1000 people in the US each year. The dogs who bite the most are Chihuahuas. There are very few dog bites per capita in America, which is why I know that Chihuahuas are safe to own.
