Alright so I'm jumping into paracord and want to make two dog collars. Now, I'm going to need a bit of rope. For the smaller dog I'm going to do the King Cobra to make it fairly thick. The other dog is a great white behemoth and has a twenty-inch neck (His current collar is set to twenty inches) and weighs around a hundred pounds. For him I was going to go a little crazy and weave a double King Cobra (as in two king cobras knotted together. Instructions here: http://paracordprojectsguide.com/how-to-make-a-paracord-dog-collar/ Second video.) Big dog with a big collar. He needs a handle.

About how much paracord will I need? Smaller (relatively) dog is going to need a 14.5 inch collar (I measured her collar without the length of the buckle.) Also what size buckle will I need for these?

Cobras generally run about 1 for per inch of weave. The second weave for a King Cobra runs about the same. So figure 2 ft per in for the king. Never tried a double king but this should give you a starting point. I always give myself an extra foot on a bracelet because you don't want to come up short. I'd probably add another 2-3 ft for a dog color for the same reason.

I was going to give around 1/4 to a 1/2 extra for breathing room since their collars are thinner nylon right now.
Now be careful with this measurement and account for shrinkage (seeing as some paracord shrinks a little)

Also on how much to use I go with the 1 foot for every inch rule.

I add at least an inch to bracelets, so you want to add a little more then that, you have to calculate in the loss of the area the thicker you get! Don't choke your dogs.
