Thoughtless Thursday: Strike a Cord Dog Leash

 Having a multipurpose leash is something I have been wanting to get for a while. A leash that I can use when I go for a walk or go to an event, or to go shopping. One leash to do it all.

So my mom decided to order a custom leash from Strike a Cord. Strike a Cord leashes are made out of paracord, also know as parachute cord or 550 cord. Paracord is made of seven strong nylon cords with each cord made of several smaller woven stands, all wrapped in a flexible outer braided nylon  wrapper. The combined breaking strength of real paracord is 550 pounds making it great for parachuting. And this is also where the name 550 cord comes in.

Strike a Cord was wonderful to work with. I customize the entire leash. I was able to choose the four color, choose the length, and was able to add "D" rings

The leash is a total of 90 inches long. The pattern is a  King Cobra braid meaning I was able to choose four color: Reflective Purple, Neon Green, Silver Gray, and White. There are 5 "D" rings placed every 12 inches. And finally and the ends are a clasp.

Now, you might be asking yourself, "How is it a multipurpose lease?" With my assistants help, here's how......

Over the shoulder.

Around the waist.

Use it like a standard leash.

Attach it to a tree.

Or a bench.

Can you think of any ways I missed?

Strike a Cord also makes bracelets, collars, harness and more. To learn more about Strike a Cordtheir other products, or their prices visit them on their Website or their Facebook page.

  1. Mom could never wrap it around herself as we would see a critter and take off, hurting her. We do like that you can tie the dog up easily with it. Nice feature.

  2. Now that is so COOL, Spencer! It can be a different leash depending on the situation. Just brilliant and I love the colors you chose!

  3. That is a great multipurpose leash. It will also match any pair of shoes and bags! teehee

  4. I agree with Emma, draping the leash around ones shoulder and waist can result in some really nasty injuries for the human and even the pup, should the pup BOLT. But, since it is a custom leash, one wouldn't necessarily have to use that feature if they thought it was unsafe.

  5. That is a super cool leash and I am very impressed with your assistant! LOL! You chose a great color combination. Thanks for a great review! ♥

  6. Nice!!!! Love this leash! Very multi purpose too!

  8. That looks like a neat leash. Is it Marcus-proof? :)

  9. What a great idea ... I would love one for speed walking with the dogs. These look great for having the dogs in public to attach to a tree or table. Do you know if they come in longer length? I definately have to check these out because we need new leashes for hands free.

  10. Very nice! We never heard of them so will have to check this out, thanks!
