Custom Leash and Martingale Collar

Postby dawnapbt » Sat Jan 08, 2011 3:08 pm

I have been getting into leather crafting recently and I decided I wanted to make myself a really awesome martingale-leash combo. I use this so many ways -- as a car leash, a backup collar in conjunction with another collar, and a regular training leash. It's a combination multi-functional training leash with a secure martingale collar.

I haven't come up with an official name for it yet, but I think it deserves it's own little name. I LOVE this thing. It looks nice, it's totally functional, and of course I can fit the martingale to my dog's head and neck size. I'm also offering to make these for anyone who wants one -- you can get them in brown and black right now. BUT if you want black, you might have to wait a bit longer for some supply issues (I would need to buy a complete roll at the leather shop and wait until I have enough orders to do a bunch). Brown is easy right now because they sell this lovely brown leash strip at the leather shop for a pretty decent price.

I'll be tinkering around with other materials, like cotton or nylon rope, but right now. It's leather.

Let me know, if you order, the following information (in the comments):

Size of dog's head at widest point
Size of dog's neck measured just behind the ears
Black or brown leather
Brass or Nickel hardware
Preferred length of "leash" portion

Make sure to include a valid email and shipping address! PRICE: $85.

And I'll be donating a portion of all sales directly to Chako Pit Bull Rescue.

Thank you! I am pretty happy with it myself :) I made two of them. One from an older european training leash I had (black, super soft leather) and another new one in this brown.

Looks great! One of the multifunctional leads I made is the same design, but it's a slip collar instead of a martingale. I love this style of lead, I use it all the time.

I've never made anything like this, though I've had requests for them.
Now I know who to refer folks to!

Your first picture gave me an idea (not to do with leather or rope, though) for Luke!

It was fun to make <G> I've never tried anything like that before, so I wasn't sure how well I could do it, but I really like how it came out. It fits Savvy pretty perfectly since I used him as a measurement model LOL
