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.
