Introduction: Loom Band Dog Collar

Picture of Loom Band Dog Collar

I love my dog- A LOT. He normally doesn't wear a collar. This is the new dog collar I have invented! Ta da! Yeah, it's just a fishtail! Don't judge=) And know that you cannot walk your dog with this collar. I hope you enjoy!=D

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

•Your Dog

Step 6: Taking Shape

After a few times of adding and looming, your fishtail will take form.

Step 7: Halfway Done

When you're halfway done, you can add your dog tag!

Step 8: The Dog Tag

I don't have a dog tag for my dog, so I have to use this smiley face charm=) Way better! Take a single band and loop it through he top of your dog tag.

Step 9: Putting It On

Then put the band onto your loom as shown. Loom like normal until you're done. Done means that it will loosely fit around your dog's neck.

Step 10: All Done

My dog has a pretty large neck. He's not fat, just chubby=) Size will vary!

Step 11: Put Your Clip on the End

I might try a collar like that actually! would you mind if I made a instructable on it with original credit to you?

Why of course! That's a wonderful idea! Can't wait to see it!=P

Would the rubber rub on them and annoy them or hurt them?

Sorry for the late reply! And to tell the truth, depending on what dog you have, it may irritate the dog's skin. Let's just say that you have one of those hairless dogs. This would really irritate them. Same with a long haired dog. But I think that it works for a short haired dog like Bennie.

Interesting looking dog

Well I'll take that as a compliment lol=)

I'm half tempted to get a fabric collar and make a look band collar slightly larger than it, and put a few stitches to hold the one to the other, so that the fabric is in her fur and the bands less so :/

Ah that's a great idea! Sorry this collar didn't work out!=(

haha I love the last picture <3 so cute

Lol my dog is such a model. I thought it was one of the best ones I have of him=P

LeoRioBell (author)2014-08-10

awwww! cute dog! This is my puppy. Leo :3 :)

loompiggytutorials (author)2014-07-21

Yeah=( Cute dog! Maybe you can sew a fabric collar or use other material. I will make sure that one day, I will post a tutorial on a better collar meant for dogs with long hair, okay?

doodledoos (author)2014-07-18

would love to try this, but I think my dogs' hair would be too long for it and get caught in it :(

loompiggytutorials (author)2014-07-17

Well that's a shame! And I think that it depends on what dog you have. Bennie was not resistant when I put it on, but that's him.

I did this for my three chihuahuas. but they destroyed the collars after a couple weeks. :/
