Use of measuring tape
For making humane choke collars, the first step is the use of measuring tape for measuring the size of the neck of dogs. These measurements are taken in two ways. First, the size is taken directly from behind the ears of the dog. Second where the collar has to be seated. After taking measurements, make sure to leave two extra inches of the collar for adjustment.
While measuring, keep in mind that the collar should be snugged. The reason is that the loose collar will be drawn out from the dog’s neck automatically.
Shaping the webbing into the collar
The next step demands you to cut the webbing into two pieces. One will be called the control loop and the other will be named the neck loop. For this purpose, you need a sewing machine. The neck loop usually requires 14 to 16 inches. The control loop usually depends upon the subtracted inches from the neck measurements and the measurements behind the collar. For the control loop, you need extra inches to make it finer.
One of the D-rings is sewn on one side of the webbing. It is placed on webbing and the web folds around the ring. Sew it by using a sewing machine. Make two to three stitch queues on the ring for more strength and firmness.
Second D-ring sewing
Take a webbing and place it on the plain surface. Place a D-ring on it. Now fold the webbing. Sew the other D-ring on webbing. Now both ends of the neck loop will be bound by the D-rings. These rings are used to bound the neck loop with the control loop of the collar. The collar size should always remain a few inches longer for the folding of the collar to sew D-ring.
Join neck loop and control loop
Now it’s time to join both loops together by sewing them. Both ends of the neck loop contained D-rings. These rings act as the face for the control loop to fit in. So the control loop joined with the neck loop using the D-rings facing outward. Now enter the left D-ring into the control loop for further procedure.
Sewing of the control loop
Fold the control loop. Join its both ends. After joining, sew both ends with a sewing machine. Confirm that the third D-ring is present on the left side of the control loop.
For strengthening the control loop, sew it upside down. Triple stitch this collar for extra reliability. The control loop is stitched from two points. The third D-ring is placed on the left side of the collar.
