    Gorgeous! I may have to hit you up for some more stuff now that you have biothane lol

    Since you've worked with webbing and now with biothane, how much harder is biothane to work with?

    I like working with biothane more... No sewing, just punch a few holes and set some rivets! And I prefer it a lot more as a material. Just not quite as cute if you're looking for patterns.

    Hmmmm...I'm dying to get a biothane guide harness, but nobody makes them :( So if ultimately you decide you can't, I MIGHT give it a shot.

    So, yeah, whenever you have stuff figured out, I'd love to get a guide harness if you can make one :rofl1:

    I'm sure it can't be that difficult... Do you have any "blueprints" for a harness? I'd like to see what exactly it would entail!

    Jackson'smom, yes! After testing a leash on Sir's strong self, I have opened up shop to take orders on discounted leashes/collars until I send a few more testers out, just to make sure.

    I really want to try biothane, but am leery with Cali. She is a well mannered dog, but the last thing I need is equipment failure with her. People are already scared of her because of what she is.

    Hmmm...maybe I need to break down and try it.

    BTW - Sir is looking so grown up. :)

    I'm very excited to get my leash! Meagan's is BRIGHT!

    Ashby, I questioned her on the durability of it (especially since I'm getting a thin leash) and she didn't seem to think it wouldn't hold up to standards. I don't want to say anything on her behalf but she's always been great at working with me.

    I'll be sure to update how mine fares once I receive it but Gwen isn't big nor aggressive with her leashes/collars so I'm not sure how helpful I'll be ;)

    What type of dog is she?

    Fwiw- I took Sir out on his harness with this 3/8" leash with four rivets holding it together, and had my friend hold him while I flirted the flirt pole in front of him. Hardest he will probably ever pull is for that thing! He was pulling, jerking, lunging, and jumping at the end of it and it held up great- showed no signs of pulling apart and the biothane itself should not break under normal pressure like that. Sir is 50 lbs of pure muscle.

    I am going to be testing it with him a lot more and often to make sure it STAYS that good, but that's what the testers are going out for as well... so soon we should know for sure how strong these will be in the long run.

    I'm planning on taking Harlow biking with her's clipped to her harness. She likes to haul while bikejoring when we first go out, so that should be a good judge of durability as well.

    I'll get together some pictures that I found helpful and send them to you. I don't have a pattern I use or anything, since each one I make is different depending on the dog/handler. But basically it's a Comfort Flex with D-rings and stabilizer loops for the handle. If nothing else, I could make up a mini one and send it to you :rofl1:

    Yeah, I'd love to see some pictures! It doesn't sound like it'd be too hard, at all! What width do you think you'd like?

    Now I'm picturing putting a mini 3/8" harness together to put on my VS pink dog sitting on my desk to model it. :rofl1:
