In this article I talk about Tubline Pectoral collar with Pet Walk Guide Blue, I picked for my dog.
Not long ago I spoke here in Skooter Blog on the Venice Black pectoral for Chalesco dogs that, Although functional, wouldn't let me very happy because of the difficulty to put on and take off.
I decided to then acquire the Tubline Pectoral collar with Pet Walk Guide Blue, that have higher price, but it seems to be a little more comfortable, on behalf of the breastplate be wider, instead of just a strip of nylon.
The first notable feature of Pectoral Collar Tubline with respect to the Venice Pecs is the ease of placement. Simply put the part that gets around the neck, pull the breastplate about his chest and close the two tabs on top.
But, some defects in the Venice Pecs are also present in Pectoral Collar Tubline. One of them is that she also has a tendency to go down with the use. Fortunately even the widest setting is enough to keep my dog well stuck.
Another detail more disturbing is that, just as happened with the Venice Pecs, twice the Pectoral Collar Tubline opened alone. In one of them I hadn't even left home, may have been my fault. But on another occasion she was securely fastened before leaving.
Early in the way, the scared dog with children boring, drawbacks and rude, those who won't stop with the damn ball even when there are pedestrians passing, and whose mothers are in St. gossiping with each other instead of seeing what the kids are doing. At this point the dog jumped back and, apparently, one of the belt loops hit some of his bones with enough force to be pressed and open. At least that's my theory.
I don't understand what many manufacturers of collars have against buckles. They are practical and safe. If instead of these two bolts were two buckles, It would be a little more time-consuming to put, but it certainly addresses both problems I found: both to loosen as the opening accidentally.
Of course, this only goes for well made buckles, because I've had a collar with buckle poorly made, whose center pin was too short. So she opened the very first ride. I reported the problem in pet shop, We test every collar alike and they had the same problem. I got an exchange for another model, but unfortunately the defective model continued for sale.
Returning to Pectoral Collar Tubline, It is available in three sizes: small, medium and large. I opted for medium size, suitable for dogs with neck circumference between 35 and 50 cm, and belly circumference between 45 and 58 cm. I measured the circumference of my dog before purchasing and this seemed like the right model. It worked! With respect to colors, a Pectoral Collar Tubline is available in blue, red and pink.
According to the packaging, the outside of the chest is 80% PVC and 20% polyester. Internally there is a screen 100% polyester, PU foam expanded. Buckles and adapters in nylon PA 66. Nickel-plated carbon steel rings. Shoelaces 100% polypropylene. The validity is undetermined and manufacturing is a national.
I'm using the Pectoral Collar Tubline a little more than two months and, except for the two failures already reported, that happened in early days, I've had no problems with it. I'm probably going to continue using it as a leash holder, leaving Venice Pecs as recently.
