Paracord Dog Collar

Paracord Dog Collar

Liz Fraser Sure, I’ve encountered paracord bracelets before, but I’ve never thought of a paracord collar! This is a very creative and practical idea, I’m definitely sharing with my family. It’s useful in emergency cases, but I believe more individual research should be put in case the emergency situation actually comes and one can efficiently make use of the paracord to survive. Just a thought! John Walton Paracord collars are great collar options for dog. They are practical and durable, plus they are very usable especially in emergency situation where you might need extra strong cords for outdoor survival. Ruth Smith Paracord collars are a very good investment. They don’t take too much time to make and are very easily customizable. Not to mention that withstand quite a bit of wear and tear. Just make sure to occasionally wash the collar with soap and water and it must last a very long time! John Walton Durability is where paracord dog collars shine. They were built to last and not to mention that come in a variety of colors as well. If you intend to wash it with soap and water, I’d recommend dish soap and rinse with tap water to ensure that its elasticity will not be compromised. Sandra Underwood My brother is thinking of DIY 500 paracord for his long-haired dogs. They have nylon collars and leashes that tend to stink when they get wet. I’m just wondering if paracords are a good idea. Although they are relatively inexpensive. Anyone here using this as collars? John Walton Nylon and Paracord collars have the higher tendency to stink because they trap moisture and can harbor bacteria that can proliferate and give off that stinky smell. What you can do is to clean the collars with baking soda and dab it with a little bit of citronella. While Citronella is known to be toxic to dogs but only in large amounts. Small amounts are generally safe as odor deterrent. Atalanta Don’t know how well it would work, but an old theatre trick is to spritz with a vodka solution. The stink is caused by bacteria and the spritz will take care of the bacteria. Think about all those heavy ornate costumes that can’t be washed. John Walton I’ve been hearing some of my clients using vodka as well, although some of them would rather drink it. But it is also a good alternative to citronella. Laura B. How would you finish off thedouble wide solomon? I’ve seen people just melting it to the cord. but seems to me that a good jerk will break it… John Walton Yes, Laura. Melting it is the easier way to do it because it keeps it secured (and yes much easier than finishing it off). Melting is also better in the case of dog collars especially if you’re augmenting this to another material.

How to Choose the Correct Size The best way to measure your pet’s neck for our awesome Survival Straps Pet Collars is by using a fabric tape measure around their neck, about 2-3” behind the base of their ear. If you do not have a fabric tape measure, you may try to use a piece of string, but please keep in mind this may cause variances in your measurement and ultimately the collar. Please measure tightly, and don’t worry we will properly add slack for the collar to fit comfortably according to the neck size. If your dog is extra fluffy in this area, tighten the tape slightly to compensate for the extra skin or hair in that area. Please do not measure your pets existing collar, as that will not give us an accurate neck measurement. Remember you will have an extra 1/2” of adjustability with the  clasp used on the collars, so if your measurement is in-between sizes, round down to the nearest inch.

First things first, you’ll need to measure your dog’s neck at about where you’d like his collar to sit. You can also measure his existing collar. For every inch of length, you’ll need one foot of paracord. In this tutorial, I’m using hunter green and blaze orange paracord to make a 16-inch collar. So I cut one 16-foot length of each color.
