*Dog Collar & Leash
*2 Small AA Drivers
Basic knowledge of sewing
*** This collar CANNOT get wet. Do not let dog swim in water with collar. This collar is used for night time walks and bragging rights.
***Make sure that your dog is fully grown. You will be sewing on El wire to this collar and there is no way to tighten it.
With all that said, let's get started!
Step 1: Sizing the Collar
Make sure that the dog collar fits snugly around your dogs neck. This will be the permanent size of the dog collar so make sure that it is on right.
Step 2: Taping the Driver
What you want to do is tape the driver next to the side of the dog collar that doesn't have the metal loop where you attach the leash. Just secure it with electrical tape. Then you want to put the driver on the top of the dog leash near your hand for easy access. Also secure this with electrical tape.
Step 3: Tape the El Wire
Tape the El wire to the dog leash and collar in the pattern you want. This will secure the El wire when you are sewing it or moving the collar. This is a very important step because it is really hard to sew El wire onto something that it isn't secured to.
Step 4: Sew
Thread the needle with fishing wire. Make sure that the fishing wire length is long, but not too long that it gets tangled every time you do something. Then get the two ends of the fishing wire and tie a big knot so that the fishing wire doesn't slip through when you start sewing. It may be hard to push the needle through your dog collar or leash, if this happens then just flip the collar upside down and push the needle through by using the hard surface of a table. Once you are done with the sewing, just tie it off with a knot.
Step 5: Finished
Now put that collar on your dog and take a good long look at your hard work. Take your dog on a walk to show off his or hers fancy looks.
