Reddit.com User _Blur has posted a really clever DIY Hoop Collar for tiny and small dogs who may find other such collars too heavy or bulky. It’s easy to make and uses readily available materials so almost anyone could make one themselves.
“I started with a Top Paw easy comfort for harness from pet smart and cut the straps and had them resewn to our dogs exact size to the harness was snug enough to keep the hoop level at all times
“Next I drilled two holes in each of the leather sides of the harness like so
“Then I put in some bolts, washers, and measured out some 3/4” plastic hanger strap (I double layered this for a bit more strength so it didn’t just bend and hit him) and bent the ends slightly to form the hoop. I put two more washers between the harness and hanger strap and secured it with some wing nuts like so
“It ended up looking like this
“Finally we put it on and let him adjust!”
This clever design even keeps clear of the dog’s food and water bowls!
