Going green is all the rage these days. So why not think about buying – or making – eco-friendly accessories for your dog? Especially collars and leashes are easy to find or assemble.
Environmentally friendly doesn’t have to mean ugly or simple. On the contrary, it means that your dog’s collar or leash is made of materials that are not harmful to the environment. This ranges from recycled plastic, old candles, or parachutes to hemp and many other things you can’t list them all. You have many opportunities to determine your own and your pet’s style.
If you’re a craftsman, you can sew a collar from just about anything. For the really brave, you can add some crafts or embroidery of your choice. Pearls, old jeans, or other accessories can be added to the design to really beautify it.
Before you start, you should try out a strip of cloth or other material you want to use on your dog. Color is important, but the width is also important. Take a break while you see the gradual results of your efforts. It’s better to catch a mistake in the middle of the project than to wait until the whole project is finished.
Once a style has been agreed upon for a collar, a hint can be made to mix or match. You could even make necklaces and straps with Christmas themes, or different versions for different seasons if you really want to spend some time with them. It may take some work, but I guarantee you’ll end up with something no other dog or owner has something that really expresses the unique relationship between you and your pet, or just something quirky and fun.
Another advantage of using alternative materials for a collar is that they have some advantageous properties compared to the traditional nylon variant. The main difference is comfort. Organic materials such as hemp and bamboo tend to adapt to the wearer, which means your dog will have a collar that fits perfectly, with some stretch, but not enough to slip on.
Of course, you also get a good sense of your environmentally friendly choices. But your dog can feel good too. Many unnatural products contain chemicals that can irritate your dog’s allergies or sensitivities, or even cause health problems. In most cases, this won’t be a problem, but sometimes you can kill two birds with one stone by choosing the eco-friendly collar or leash. For example, bamboo fabric is naturally antibacterial.
It also absorbs odors better than some other fabrics, but even if you prefer to recycle previously used materials, it will reduce your carbon footprint, so to speak.
Designing and manufacturing a homemade dog collar is a great project to involve the family in the care of your dog, especially if you have children around. It’s also fun to welcome a new pet into the group, and if each of your children is responsible for a pet, they can show it off with a unique design they can be proud of because they did it and because it’s healthy.
Nylon collars and other types of dog collars are a good choice. But the option of an eco-friendly collar for your dog that also provides entertainment and bonding is an idea worth considering.
