    [​IMG] I made a slip lead and a 1 or 2 dog control leash!

    The rope is a bit large for a slip...but I think it'll work alright...not something I'll use regularly anyway. I'm pretty proud of the control leash...I wanted to do just a swivel in the middle and make a 2 dog leash....but they didn't have them at home depot...so I got a heavy duty clip and decided to make it a 1 or 2 dog leash...just take the coupler off and its 1 dog [​IMG] I also wasn't going to add the handle at the front...but thought to add it as I was making it so now its good for walking around traffic too [​IMG]

    Thanks! [​IMG] I'm actually thinking about making them to sell....its surprisingly easy. I'm not thrilled with the appearance of the clips though... These ones are cool... http://www.ezty.com/rope.htm#clamps ...but I'm not sure people would want to pay that much for them....

    Quote:Go for it!!! You will be surprised at how much people would pay,I was shocked when I listed a few of my collars on ebay and watched some sell for insane prices.Make a few in different colors and post some pictures or list them on ebay...I would use the clips from the link you posted they look safer for the animals.....here is a link to some of the collars I have made/sold... http://www.mackeba.com/Stylin.html

    Very nice...how long is the lead? I have one similar that I use when I'm hunting or training....It is long enough to wrap around my neck and shoulder so I don't have to keep my hand on it..it can be adjusted for length...I think from 6-10'...when the dogs aren't on it I can shorten it and clip it to my vest....But yours looks very clean and easy to use....You probably should put a price on it if you want to sell them.

    well I wasn't going to sell these ones...lol

    It is only ~5 foot...which is good for control. It would be easy to make them in any length or style though. I haven't gone through the logistics yet to figure out how much it would cost to make them and how much I'd have to sell for.

    My dogs would tangle themselves together so badly with that!! [​IMG] My dad does have one that is a 2 dog lead, which he uses for his hunting dogs. They are little though, so they are easy to control. My dog is hard enough to control by herself!! Very nice though!! [​IMG]
