Here's the happy husky out for a stroll in his new pride and joy at our wedding. He loved the attention and best of all he has a great time going for walks. This has lasted over a year with serious abuse and he normally pops through a leash every 2-3 months. Did I mention huskies are strong sled dogs? I added a picture of Chino fake pulling me for laughs.
Step 1: Lay Out Your Supplies and Make Sure Nothing Is Missing
leather handle (12-14 inches)
lobster clasp (1 1/4 inch size)
leather leash (main body) (rooughly 70 inches)
water protector or sealer
4-6 extra long rivets
Step 2: Add Any Designs You Want
Step 3: Add a Primer Coat of Oil Dye
Step 4: Allow to Dry Overnight
The leather in the front has been allowed to dry overnight, while the leather in the back just had a coat of dye applied to it so it's wet. You can see the difference.
Step 5: Add Another Coat of Dye
Step 6: Seal It With Protector
Step 7: Hammer in the Rivets
I hope this helps you and have a great day with your dog.
