Introduction: ☆ ADJUSTABLE DOG LEASH ☆

this is a really handy leash, you can make it short or long, and when you go shopping you can tie your dog to a pole without have to take him out of the leash. (I always have my dog with me so it append frequently that he have wait for me few minutes outside of some place).
If you put also a ring in the middle and you ve got a nice dog is also good for going in bicycle, I ve got another leash like that and I put it over one shoulder and under the other (like a safety belt) and it work great.

Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED

MATERIALS:
-old climbing rope;
-thin rope;
-2 iron ring;
-2 snap-hooks

Step 2: CUT THE ROPE

cut the rope 2 meter and half (or as much as you want it long)
burn the edges with lighter

Step 3: PLACE SNAP-HOOKS

place the 2 snap-hooks at the edges, fold back r.ope and close them with small rope like in photo. close it really tight.

Step 4: PLACE RINGS

place the rings 30/40 centim.eters far from the carabiner. close it really tight

Step 5: DONE

you are done! use it double for a shorter version, at first ring for middle length and at last ring for long length

Step 6: TIE DOG TO SOMETHING!

tie dog to something when needed: small pole, huge pole.

    the rings for shortening up the leash is a great idea.

    I have been looking at making my own leash and most use the splicing method. How well does using the smaller rope to make a loop work? I have strong huskies that could pull pretty hard.

    the smaller rope work really good, this is in fact the way they use to tie the cart to the horses! so I think it will be fine for your dog. But remember that is really important to make it really tight and to use a rope that wont slip, so that the not will not unravel (that can be the only inconvenience)
