    I just ordered the stuff for 1" wide leashes. I can make 10 leashes 6 ' long for $28 including tax but not including any fabric. That makes each leash $2.80 so well under $5 even with fabric.

    I make and sell dog collars very successfully at craft shows. If you do the same, I suggest you market them as fashion accessories. I had a friend who was threatened with a lawsuit when a collar she made failed at the buckle and the dog got away and was hurt. By marketing them as a fashion accessory rather than a restraint device, you eliminate this possibility.

    And I'm not saying that in general they aren't strong enough to use as a restraint, I'm just saying I don't market them that way to avoid any potential trouble. Beyond that, I always recommend a harness anyway for walking your dog and collars as an attractive accessory and for attaching tags to.

    I totally agree! Way to many sue happy people out there. We use body harnesses for walking and collars as tag holders.

    Sweet!
    I have a herd of 15 goats plus the two livestock guardian dogs. We use the web collars to handle them and as neck tag holders. This would be a fun way to dress them up and cost much less.

    I suppose I'll have to add those to my To-Do list!
