If your pet dog/cat has behaved more nice than naughty this year, give them a DIY Collar. Canine craftswoman Trina Moore recommends transforming your old belt into a Copilot Collar.
- Simply measure your dog's neck, and starting from the buckle end, mark the length on the belt.
- Then make a hole at the spot you marked (Trina recommends using an awl and hammer).
- Next, trim the belt 3-5 inches past the hole, and shape the edge by rounding or angling the corners.
- Voila! Just make sure the collar fits your pet before attaching a leash.
