How to make a paracord dog collar

This time I show you how to make paracord dog collar in two different designs.

Paracord dog collars are one of the best things you can do out of paracord. They are high quality, cheap and there is quite a demand for them on the market in case you decide to sell them.

Today I will show you two simple dog collar designs. Although they are simple and commonly used, I would still rank them as one of the best dog collar designs available.

One is made using the double cobra knot, also called the king cobra, the second using the gorilla knot.

For the project you will need:

  • paracord 550, I highly recommend using two or more colors
  • an O-ring or a D-ring, rings named after the shape they are found in. We will use these to hook the leash onto the collar
  • a buckle. You can use a plastic one, but for stronger dogs I would recommend metal buckles
  • lighter and a pair of scissors

With these supplies at hand, we can begin our paracord dog collars.

The gorilla knot paracord dog collar

When I first heard of the gorilla knot, I was surprised, since I knew all the essential knots used for making dog collars. It is supposedly a very popular knot  and I was pretty sure the most common way to make a collar was to use the king cobra knot. Well, after some research I found out that the gorilla knot is indeed a very suitable knot to use for a dog collar. It is also less time consuming to make that the king cobra dog collar.

The gorilla knot is basically a doubled cobra knot. Unlike the king cobra, where we make two layers, with the gorilla knot you double the cords used. Instead of working with two at a time you simply make cobra knots using four cords. See the tutorial below and you will easily get the hang of it.

The king cobra dog collar

A very popular dog collar design is the king cobra one. We covered making the knot in the king cobra paracord bracelet tutorial, so I will only show the finished product at this point. I must say I am liking the look!
