As we searched for the best of the best dog supplies, I had stumbled across Paracord Dog Leashes several years ago after reading a Blog from Paracord expert Stormdrane. I knew very little about Paracord (short for Parachute Cord and also known as 550 cord) at that time, only knowing that this type of cord was frequently used by the brave men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces.
The 550 paracord is known for its versatility and considered a survival tool in an emergency and survival situation. The first known use of the paracord was in World War II when the paratroopers used the paracord for their suspension lines for their parachutes. It was even used by the astronauts to fix the Hubble Space Telescope.
Today, the paracord is not only used by the military personnel, but civilians as well. In the situation of an emergency, the paracord may be used as a structure for creating a tent and as a replacement for shoe lace. The inner fibers may be used to floss your teeth as well as creating snares in catching food such as small animals and birds.
What amazed me with Paracord was its high tensile strength, lightweight characteristics, and military-inspired color options. My experience in braiding was limited to braiding hair and making friendship bracelets when I was younger, so I was very eager to learn this new technique, I decided to make the Paracord dog leash.
Since then, my experience in working with paracord brought me to creating hundreds of dog leashes, collars and paracord bracelets. What was once a curiosity for paracord has now led me to fulfilling hundreds of requests from customers both returning and new.
The Paracord Dog Leash is custom hand-crafted with over twenty colors to choose from. The available colors include: red, royal blue, black, olive drab green (also known as od green), ACU digital, woodland camo, desert camo, colonial blue, coyote brown, coyote tan, desert tan, electric blue, foliage green, golden rod, grey, kelly green, khaki, multi camo, neon green, neon pink, pink, turquoise and yellow.
The trigger-snap buckles serves as an additional security and quite a bit of style from the standard dog leash buckles. With two type of braiding styles – the diamond and spiral, four paracords are braided together.
Because the paracord is available in a variety of colors, the color combinations are endless. It still amazes me how the paracord is extremely strong. With four Paracord strands the leash has a breaking strength of 2,200 lbs. it’s the best leash for dogs small and large.
