Hello all. I have a question that I hope the community can help me with. I recently made something similar to this but it soon became stretched out as seen in the picture. I tied it as tight as I possibly could but the "links" have loosened and the fused end has been stretched. My dog is a serious puller! Does anyone have any suggestions about how to prevent such stretching in the future? I am looking at making her a new collar and a leash but I want these to be able to keep her safe. In it's current condition, she can get out of this one. Any resolutions are greatly appreciated.
Here is the picture of the one I made:
If you haven't, you can put it in boiling water, and it'll shrink a bit.
I got mine at a sporting goods store with hunting, fishing, and machinery in it. You could probably find one in like home hardware or home depot. Someplace like that. Hope you liked it! Remember to vote!
Great job! This looks awesome - I could make one for my kitty. :)
nice work, gonna try with my dog
