DIY Pet Leash

So, I had been wanting to get my dog, Hobbes, a new leash. Nothing is wrong with the one he has now, in fact, I love the leash he has now. It’s adjustable and really easy to clip around poles or trees or anything like that if we’re out at the park and want to just sit around and hang out. Even though the leash we have for him already is adjustable, it would only go so short. I wanted something that was short and was simple, easy and quick to clip on him so we could run out the door for a quick walk.

In true chezlin fashion, I decided I’d make the leash myself. So of course I documented it all and I’m going to share it with you all so you can make one for your own pets!

Now, you can stop here and be done, but if you want, you can wax it. This is supposed to make the cord more comfortable to use and it makes it waterproof and, if you do it right, can give you an effect like leather.

-parafin or beeswax. I prefered bees wax. It's softer and feels better on the skin. -a bowl to melt it in -a pot with about an inch or two of water -a toothbrush -the leash -an aluminum foil lined baking sheet with a rack

I didn’t get the “leather” effect I wanted, but I’m pretty sure it’s because I only did this waxing process once. I’m going to go back and repeat it a few more times later and see if that works.

Time to test it out! This ring is nice to clip your keys and/or dog pop bags
