What makes your products different?
All of our products are Handmade In Colorado
We source materials in the US
Our paracord is Military Grade 550 cord
We test our products on our own pets, before we even consider selling them to you.
Paracord is a mold, mildew and color fade resistant material
While Paracord has a TENSILE strength of 550lbs this does not make it immune to cutting, chewing, tearing or other sharp force trauma damage.
I have had paracord products in the past that fell apart..Will yours?
We seal our products with a medical grade hot knife. We use over 1000 degrees of heat to ensure that the cord is secured to itself, we then knot over that seal and repeat the process to add optimal integrity.
Are you located in stores?
Yes you can find us in a variety of stores and the list is growing! You can also find us at local events, click on our events page for more information.
Do you ship Internationally?
At this time we DO NOT ship internationally from our website, but we do on our Etsy shop. Please visit www.etsy.com/shop/Leashesbyliz
Do your items mat or dye fur?
No, the cord has rounded edges and is flexible enough to move with a dog, making it resistant to matting. The cord is all prewashed so it should not dye fur.
Are your products washable?
One of the great things about paracord is that it is mold and mildew resistant! So please feel free to wash our products. For best results we suggest hand washing them and air dry.
*mold and mildew resistant is not a guarantee, water quality factors may affect this.
We hand make all of our products so please allow 7-10 days for production and an additional 3 days for shipping via USPS flat rate.
Are your products chewproof?
Our leashes have a unique quality in that they are made from multiple strands, we have found this to make them more chew resistant than a single piece nylon leash. Multiple strands allow the teeth to go through the braid vs latching on the material for the occasional grab; HOWEVER we do not guarantee our products against chewing when left unattended. While Paracord has a TENSILE strength of 550lbs this does not make it immune to cutting, chewing, tearing or other sharp force trauma damage.
How strong are your products?
The cord we use is rated at a tensile strength of 550lbs. Combined the strands in our leashes add to 4400 lbs!
We seal each leash with 1000 degrees of heat.
The hardware we use is designed to be a more heavy duty clip that what is on the market. The plastic side release buckles have a tensile strength of 5000 lbs.
Note: We do not manufacture the hardware and cannot unconditionally guarantee these specifications. None of our products are recommend for use as tie out.
