While looking for dog gear for our shiba inus, I had stumbled across Paracord Dog Leashes several years ago after reading a Blog from Paracord expert Stormdrane. At the time, my knowledge of the paracord (also known as parachute cord and 550 cord) was minimal, 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 is extremely versatile and is known as a survival tool in an emergency and survival situation. The 550 cord was originally used in World War II when the paratroopers used the paracord for their suspension lines for their parachutes. The astronauts also used the paracord when they fixed the Hubble Space Telescope.

Nowadays, the paracord is not limited to the use of military personnel, but civilians also.. 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.

The Paracord blew me away because of its strength, the lightweight feature, and the awesome colors available. 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. The ParaCord dog leashes are a sure hit with our dogs, our neighbors who we come across on our daily walks, and other dog owners at our local dog park.

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 provides additional security and style standard dog leash buckles. There are four Paracord strands that are inter-woven with two braiding styles - diamond or spiral. Paracord comes in so many colors that 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. and is lightweight and comfortable.
