DIY Dog Collar – How to make your own custom dog collars! | Great Dane Care

Are you tired of seeing the same boring collars sold in pet stores? This video shows you a step-by-step tutorial on how to make your own affordable custom dog collars to fit any season or occasion that comes up.

Nylon webbing –
Plastic buckles –
Welded D-ring –
Adjustment slider –
Sewing machine –

*If you don’t already have a sewing machine, the one above would be a greater option for any budding DIYer!

Note: All of these supplies (other than the sewing machine) are targeted at making a collar that is 1.5 inches wide. If you choose to use a narrower webbing e.g. 1 inch, make sure to purchase buckles, adjustment sliders, and d-rings that are also made for 1-inch webbing.

  1. Great video, I've been wanting to make my own dogs their collars for some time now. Where is the fabric from may I ask? Can I use any fabric and do you cut the width / length yourself? thank you in advance!

  2. Hello. I'm new to this. I have a question. If I want to just use a standard measurement of dog collars, for example: small 1" 9"-13", Medium 11"-17", Large 1" 15"-24", X-Large 1"-1.5" 18"-27" (all measurements I found on the internet). How do I know what length to use? Your example said a 19"-31" the length of the webbing is 38". What would be my measurement for those sizes? I'm not sure on how you got the 38. Thank you for your help!

  3. Do you use a special needle, or is that just the normal sewing needle on your machine? Also, could I wrap the fabric all the way around the webbing so the color doesn't show on the edges?

  4. So glad to find this great video – thank you! I'll be making mini's, but a couple tips for wider collars: maybe sew two close rows along each edge to help keep the fabric taut (and from appearing loose and separate from webbing layer) – or even use a fabric adhesive first, then stitching for a cohesive, smooth appearance and durability (?) Also, I see many commercial collars sew down an X within a rectangle formation for strength – an alternative to zigzag, if needed.

  5. Awesome video! I love sewing stuff for our current dog (50 lb shepherd mix), including coats. 🙂 We (my hubby and I) will be getting a great dane puppy this fall from my sister who is an akc breeder. We have never owned a great dane before so I'm glad I found this channel! Any tips I can get would be great! My hubby's already planning on turning our side table into a dog bowl holder for when the pup is fully grown. 🙂

  6. Thank you!! This is very helpful I’m trying to make a business on making dog collars and products but had no clue where to start!

  7. Ooh! Thanks for this very easy to understand video! I'm a student planning on starting a dog accessory etsy shop over the summer and this would make a unique product, As they are harder to make than a classic bandanna.

  8. This was such a great tutorial!! Would love to see more from you guys! Like an over the collar bandanna ❤️ Need to keep busy in quarantine lol

  9. Really well made video. Very clear and concise.
    I make leads, you guys call them leashes, out of paracord. They are time consuming and can be awkward but the result is amazing. I’ve given some to friends with large strong breads and the are amazed at the strength.
    My leads would look great with your collar so going to give it a go.

  10. I’m new to your channel. What a great 👍🏻 tutorial very clear even for a non DIY person as myself. Thank you for sharing too

  11. I have been thinking about making collars for years yet have been intimidated by it. I now have the courage to do this today.

  12. With the fabric what’s the width say if it’s a one inch thick webbing ? Do you just double the width?

  13. Wow! This is the best video so far. I watch so many trying to learn how to make pet collar and I finally got it. Thank you.

  14. Great tutorial! My suggestion is this… If you sell these at fairs or craft shows, be sure and market them as fashion accessories. I had a friend who was threatened with a law suit when one of the collars she made failed (at the plastic buckle) and the dog got away and was hit by a car. By marketing them as a fashion accessory, you have no liability if the collar fails if used as a restraint.

  15. Could you please do a video showing material added to both sides ? 🙂 My collars all have material on both sides.

  16. Awesome video! I just made one for my dog today and followed all the steps. It came so great! I love it! Thank you so much for sharing!

  17. Thank you so much for this great tutorial! Very easy to follow and understand. I also appreciated that you provided links to the materials you’ve used. I can’t wait to get started!

  18. Sorry to bother you but another question but you know the part of the collar where the it’s ruff like where you sew in the inside how do I make that not scratch thanks like where the d ring is
