A natural way to keep your dogs flea and tick free all summer? That sounds almost too good to be true. And I have to admit that that was exactly my first thought when I found out about the EM ceramics. It sounded a bit fluffy and vague so I didn’t pay more attention to it until a bit later a friend mentioned it. I read a bit more and decided to just give it a try. You can buy collars like these from many small shops or make your own. I love making things for my dogs so I ordered these little ceramic pipes online, got the paracord out and made 2 collars already.
The plan is to make one for each dog but I got a bit delayed because of blisters on my fingers 🙂 – yeah, DIY comes with a few minor risks (but a lot of fun). A bit of tape on your fingers will prevent accidents like this easily:-).

Here is what you need:

– EM pipes. I ordered them online. My dogs
have a neck size of about 40cm/17inch and I use 13-14 pipes for each collar.
– Paracord 2mm. (if you use a knot where you need the 2 cords to go through the pipes)
– A buckle/ rings/…
– scissors
– a lighter to melt the ends of the paracord
– A pattern for the knots. The most used is probably the Cobra and this blue/green collar is a variation of that one. The Blue/yellow one from Oona is a variation of the Half Hitch but this photo doesn’t want to upload so I have to try again later.

It’s still an experiment for me as my dogs are only wearing it for a few days now, but if you have any experience with this, feel free to let me know!

    Hi Are the instructions anywhere for that particular weave? I know it’s a type of cobra but I can’t find any with the cross stitches. Would love to have a go..

        Ooooh thank you, that’s very kind, I’m going to have a go. Presumably you have to have the pipes exposed on both sides so they touch the skin?

      I’d love to know if you find them in the US. I’m looking too. I’m also curious if the water treatment beads are the same and what size to get.
