Medium Dog Collar 3/4" width, in two lengths: 8" - 14" or 12" - 20"
You will need to determine what your dog's collar size is so that you can cut your materials to the correct lengths.
This dog collar utilizes a quick clasp closure, also called a side release clasp. Sizing is given as a range of neck lengths. Measure your dogs neck size or its current collar length (not including buckles) to obtain correct sizing:
The purpose of this post is to get a proper placement of the shock collar on your dog. And I have to say that I find this one of the most challenging things. The manuals that come with the shock collars typically state that the collar ought to be positioned with the receiver right under the dog's chin.
Then you need an OKIE DOG long length collar
Small Dogs up to 18 lbs 15" collar length ..
Slip Collar or Choke Chain: For the proper length of a slip collar, measure the distance around your dog’s neck and add 2-1/2″ to 3″. Ask someone experienced with these dog collars how to put one on your dog. If it’s not on correctly, it won’t release after a correction, which reduces its training effectiveness.An even easier method to find your dog’s collar size is to measure the collar your dog is currently wearing at the exact hole being used. This is the length of your new collar (measured from the end of the buckle to the third hole).Our collars are based on actual neck size, not collar length. For instance, if you have a dog with a 17″ neck, you should order a 16-18″ collar. Better yet, give us your dog’s exact neck measurement in the notes section during checkout. We’ll make the collar fit perfectly!Design your collar and fit to your dog's size. Measure your dog's neck circumference and multiply the measurement by 1.5. This will give you the length for the fabric you will cut. For example, if your dog's neck is 10 inches around, the length for the fabric is 15 inches. Next measure the buckle you purchased, such as 1 inch. Double the measurement to give you the width of the fabric you will cut, such as 2 inches for a 1-inch buckle. Cut two lengths of fabric and two lengths of interfacing, in this case 15 inches long, by 2 inches wide.I have pre-measured patterns that I made out of the paper that comes with interfacing that I usually refer to for collar sizes. You can use my sizes here, or you can measure a current collar your dog has. You want to add a couple inches to the length to account for folding and sewing the edges, and you want to multiply the width by 4.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.
