FREE Emergency Dog Halter




Introduction: FREE Emergency Dog Halter

I came up with this idea one day when I was taking my dog out for a walk and found out that she had chewed off her halter.  What I did was made a temporary halter using just the leash.  You can make this out of any length leash.  Here are the pictures showing how to make it.

Step 1: Making the Leash Halter

First find the dog your going to walk.

Step 2: Step 2

Bring the leash around your pets neck and bring the end with the clip over the rest of the leash.

Step 3: Step 3

Wrap the clip end around under your pet, but make sure you leave some slack around your pet's neck.

Step 4: Step 4

Bring the clip up and secure.

Step 5: Now for That Walk

Now you have the emergency dog halter made out of a leash.

I hope this helps someone.  If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear them.

    not a good idea, should be put over the neck not under it. as someone else showed at the bottom, they are using it to choke the dog if they dont walk directly where they want them. who chokes a dog to punish them for walking a little ahead or behind them?

    This is cool, I did it and will train my puppy with this so he isn't freaked out. I used a metal leash on his papa and he did whine once when I attached it

     I had to look up the technical name for the type clip used on leashes. It's called a "bolt snap." Just in case anyone is as amused by hardware nomenclature as I am...

    Awesome idea! I like how she looks a little bit guilty of her of her leash eating crime...hahahahahaha shes a cutie!

    How many times have I taken my beasties for a walk only to find I have only leashes on hand! very nice!

    it doest get to tight around the pup's neck? I bought a halter because my husky tugs so much on a leash.

    this looks very nice but would probably be better for your dog if you made your initial loop over the neck instead of under it. this would reduce the chance of choking your pet. just a thought....
    love the idea will do same for my dog with option i suggested.

    Very nice!  I like the way it's permanently adjustable.

    PS:  Very cute woofles!  Jack Russels are awesome dogs.

    Thank you for the instructable! My little girl chews through hers as well. It is nice to know that I'm not alone with this problem as others have posted that their dog has done the same thing.
    BTW, that is one cute dogie. I have it's sister asleep in my lap now. Yours is brown and mine is mostly black with some brown. They are a great little dog breed for sure!

    Nice! I just tried this with my 5 month old pup and it works really well. Maybe not just for emergencies! The clip on my leash was a little too small to hold the doubled part of the leash, so I added a small carabiner. I actually like it better than the $25 harness. He chewed through his last week and I had to sew to back with an awl. This method will tighten the leash around the dog's neck if he pulls ahead (or slows down) so he gets instant feedback. He walked right next to me the whole time, Thanks!
