I started making Paracord leads and collars just after we got Alfie, our Wire Fox Terrier. Any one who knows a WFT will know that when they are off their lead, they don't always come back!
I was looking for a strong piece of cord to tie to his collar when he was off his lead so that I could stand on it to stop him running off again. I found Paracord 550.
Paracord 550 has a breaking strength of 550lb, it is very strong and comes in every colour imaginable. Paracord doesn't create friction burns if your dog suddenly pulls on the lead.
Each 4 foot lead uses 70 feet of Paracord. The cord is woven around a double centre core which runs right through the lead from the hook and around the handle. The handle won't unravel as it is woven back into the lead.
A 'King Cobra' or double cobra weave can be used for larger dog collars and is ideal as a 2, 3 or 4 foot lead. A second handle can be woven into the 4 foot lead, half way down, to create a Control Lead.
4 strand weave leads are excellent for small dogs or as a light weight alternative to the cobra lead. This weave is also ideal for long training or tracking lines - up to 33 feet long. I now stock Type II Paracord 275 which is also excellent for training and tracking lines.
All fittings on leads and collars are stainless steel or chrome, brass fittings are also available.
