Rayzi’s ParacorDog Design is a company making custom designed paracord leashes and collars. They let you pick the colors, patterns and will help to make whatever you have in mind happened :)
The paracord products are durable, colorful and unique for sure. I love the color combination they picked for Mia, I think it matches her color well. :)
One thing to consider before buying a paracord product is that in most cases, you cannot adjust the length of these collars so be sure to measure your dog’s neck carefully. The collar is also a little stiffer and thicker than the traditional flat collars so I would suggest ordering one as loose as possible without sliding it through the dog’s head to be sure it is a good fit.
The buckle on the collar and the carabiner used on this leash looks a little slimmer/lighter than other products I tested before but haven’t had any issues with using it. It looks nicer with the smaller carabiner for sure so I guess I just used to seeing more robust ones on products made for hiking and other sports.
The quality of this set is impressive - you wouldn’t tell that it is handmade even when looking at the details.
The ring of the collar and the buckle is strongly attached to the paracord, I haven’t seen any wear on this part of the collar either. I also like that they used these thin, curved buckles instead of the flat ones which makes the collar lay nicer on the dog.
I needed some time to get used to the stiffness of this material, it definitely feels different to hold this leash than the “normal” textil type ones. On the good side, your dog will not get tangled in this leash while walking :)
The only small “issue” with the paracord products is that you can usually see where they melted the end of the cord to stay in place. IOn case of this set, it was done really nicely but it is still visible as you can see it on the photos below.
The handle of the leash is thicker than the leash itself to make it more comfortable to hold. It looks really nice but it is still not padded/soft which can be an issue if your dog pulls a lot and the handle is rubbing your hand all day.
To summarize, this is a beautifully made leash and collar set. The material is durable but let’s be honest, it wasn’t made for hiking when your dog gets dirty and wet because it can be hard to clean it. It is a perfect pick for a city walk to show off in front of friends ;)
Buying a handmade product means that preparing it will take a few days or a week so expect this when ordering but definitely worth the wait! Since every piece is unique, you will not find a price list for them. The different sets mostly range from $20 (6,000 Ft) to $35 (10,000 Ft) plus shipping.
