So, I wrote to Rubit, and they sent me not one, but three clips! A very generous surprise, I thought. So, I've used one, and I'm going to give two away!
Because I get paranoid about strange things, I was actually a little leery of having all of Elka's tags on one single attachment. They're on two separate rings to begin with, each then attached to the collar. There's enough information on each "bundle" that she would find our way back to us (providing somebody was honest, obviously. There's always that.)
There's actually a little less noise when all of the tags are hanging off of a single source. This is good and bad. You've heard of "belling the cat", I assume? The Rubit is really cool looking, and seems sturdy. In the time that Elka's tags have been on it, the device itself doesn't seem to have bent/scratched/warped/anything, which is great. However, it has fallen off twice, which I'm not a terribly big fan of. Both times were at home, and when Elka was curled up and cuddled up on the couch. It could be that the Doberball position she takes is what caused the clip to undo itself? It's never shown any sign of that when she was walking outside, and the leash does not clip onto the same portion of the collar that holds the tags.
(as it turns out, taking pictures of a black clip against a black dog isn't so great. The above isn't so great either. So it goes.)
So, I've been keeping an eye on things (as one should anyway), but it seems like the Rubit clip should be sturdy and reliable.
If you would like either the Medium Curve Rhinestone clip (left in the first picture) or the Medium Heart (right), then leave a comment below expressing which clip you would like, and how many tags are on your dog's collar. If you do comment without logging in, please at least leave your email in the comment, or I will have no way to contact you. Giveaway will run from today, Thursday March 21, until Monday March 25. Elka will choose the winners (via Elkacopter, as somebody once mentioned) and I'll announce at some point after that.
FTC disclosure: Rubit! send me the dog tag clips for review, but did not otherwise compensate me for this post.
