Para Cord Dog Leash

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Got a new dog a couple weeks ago. He is a rescue 3x...... My stepson has friend that rescued him and parents freaked out, so my son adopted him and he had to move and one of the roommates has a cat and it did not work, so we were watching him till he figured out what to do. Well after some initial complaints from me he is staying. So I figured I would make him a one of a kind leash. I made one for our Aussie and when looking for a new one to make I found one to buy that I really liked. So after a lot of looking I figured out a close replica.

I did a 6 strand round braid around a core. I also did a turkshead knot to finish it off. I am happy with my first run at both knots......

I placed the green as the core and used the excess for the turkshead on each end. 20' was the length. I could have cut it a couple feet shorter, but will not. I like having a good amount to work with.

For the 6 strands I made 3 ea at 25' and folded them in half and ran them through the eye of the clip. After making the braid 80" I folded over the braid 8" and back braided to secure it.

Thank you.

No I dont really sell them. It is just a hobby I got into to bond with one of my daughters. She has now found boys and I have a bunch of paracord to use up.

They are not hard to make, just very time consuming. The time part is why I dont try to sell them. I would not know how to price it where both side feel good about the price.

If you want to make one of your own PM me and I can share some of the info I have.
