DIY: Make a Paracord Dog Collar

July 02, 2014

Paracord Bracelet with Side-Release Bracelet
If you've ever frequented the outdoors, you understand how important it is to be prepared in case of emergency.  I mean, haven't we all seen that James Franco movie, 127 Hours, based on a true story?

So, increasingly, we've been noticing paracord survival bracelets on the counters of many outdoor retailers.  We've long thought, "Wouldn't that make a killer dog collar?" not only because it just looks sweet, but it also makes a lot of sense!  Look what you could do with all that paracord, and you don't even have to wear it yourself!

So, we started searching for DIY paracord bracelets online, and found that you could basically make an larger version of a paracord bracelet as a dog collar.  And then we found this online tutorial for a DIY paracord dog collar, and well, we just had to share it!

So do it Raddies!  Take a rainy summer day, or maybe one that is too hot, and grab yourself some paracord, and give your dog a killer new look!

What you'll need:

1. Paracord (you will need a foot of paracord for every inch of collar)
2. Buckle
3. D-ring
4. Scissors
5. Lighter

How to do it:


That's all there is to it RAD dogs! Once you've completed your DIY paracord collar project, share it with us on our Facebook Page!

A Love Letter To A Dog On Valentine's Day

February 14, 2017

Dear Dog,

It has come to my attention, in this month of love, that before the boyfriends, girlfriends, children, jobs and moves, there was one thing that has loved me through it all: you!

You patiently waited all day for the squeak of the door to open on the first day of my new job. You heavily nosed my significant other as to say "welcome" on our first date. You've laid with me as I cried, licked...
