Homemade Dog Collar

by Chiara



My parents, my brother and I might get a dog (keeshond), and I have been doing a lot of research for dog beds, feeders, etc... I found a lot of stuff that was nice, but all VERY expensive, or over what my brother and I are willing to spend on accessories and all. So, one day, when I had nothing to do, I came up with the idea of making stuff myself.

I thought of first making a dog collar:
First I chose a belt I liked but didn't use or would never use so that I could cut it up. One that I would like my dog to wear. The one I chose had buttons on it and a heart shaped buckle. I cut off a bit more of the belt that I wanted to use so that I could glue stuff on it if i wanted to. I hid the pin part of the buckle under the belt, so this way it only has one size, but I can make it have several. I passed one end of the belt through the buckle and glued it and TA-DA here is the collar.

It can be used as a nice collar to be worn around the house. And, when you want to take your dog on a walk, it better be trained, or you could just buy a collar on purpose for walks.

Nice description

I liked those clear instructions. You could still use the collar outside the house if you had a slit in it. Simply put the dog's regular collar underneath and add the decorative collar. Then fasten the leash through the slit in the top collar.

Wow… This is simply the best dog collar I have seen that is home made. It is simple in looks, but has that girly look, which every female dog owner would love to have. And I did love the stone work you have done on it.

I have always wanted to make my dog a collar because she tends to like to get away from the house...............
