How to make a paracord dog leash?

There is nothing more fun than taking your adorable dog for a nice walk in the park. However, it might become a bit difficult to enjoy such an activity if your four-legged companion is on a loose leash. As a paracord dog leash has several advantages over other ordinary leashes, it can be made at home.

  • Fold the two strands to form loops at the center and lay them under the metal D-ring
  • Place the ends of the cords over the ring and pass down through the loop
  • Bring the left-hand yellow strand over the left-hand blue strand
  • Place the right-hand yellow strand over the right-hand blue strand and left-hand yellow strand
  • Bring the left-hand blue strand over the left-hand yellow strand
  • Take the right-hand blue and lay it on the right-hand yellow strand and left-hand blue strand
  • Repeat this pattern until 10 inches of loose cord remains below
  • Fold the unbraided ends around to the main body of the leash
  • Attach the paper clip to the leftmost loose yellow strand and pass it through the braid
  • Interweave all the loose ends of the strands into the braid to form the handle
  • Trim the excess strands with scissors and use the lighter to melt the edges

Purchasing a dog leash from stores is a costly affair. Moreover, it might not have a high quality or durability. Making a sturdy, and long-lasting dog leash with a paracord is always feasible.
