Step 1: Tools & Supplies
Remember to preshrink your paracord in hot water. Paracord loses 10% of it's length when it gets wet and when you are walking a dog it IS going to rain at some point.
Step 2: Measuring Your Waist And Paracord
Add your waist measurement to however long you want your leash, in inches. To that number, add a 20 inch allowance for the knotting of the paracord.
My waist was 40 plus 60 for the leash plus 20 for the knots to make a total of 120 inches of paracord.
Step 3: Surgeon's Loop Knot - Part One
Using the measuring tape, measure off your waist measurement PLUS 5 inches. Slide the O-ring thru the paracord to the measurement and fold the rope. Now form aloop in the end of the line
Step 5: Surgeon's Loop Knot - Part Three
Now tighten up the knot that you have made.
Step 6: Adding The First Snap
Try the belt on for size, making sure that it is comfortable. If it isn't, undo the knots and start over until it is to your liking
