Monday Mischief: Knots

Mr. Charles weaves in and out and under the big dogs. Sometimes I get some very creative macrame knots in the leashes. The last one was really hard to undo. I tried one of those multi-leash handle things and it was terrible. The dogs don’t seem to mind the knot until they get too close to each other. Personally, I try for big dogs on the left and Lil’ on the right, but you know they have their own mind (and sniffing patterns).

What kind of mischief did you get into today?

Monday Mischief: Knots


Do you tie knots in your leashes? Tying knots in my leashes helps me when walking the dogs. With 2 dogs, I do a dance with both leashes most of the time. I use 6 foot leads, of a good weight, and I tie a few knots in them (usually at 3 and 5 feet marks). When I drop a lead, which sometimes I do on purpose to free my hands and pick up ‘you know what,’ and sometimes it just happens, I am able to immediately step on the leash, and because the knot is there, it is less likely to run under the arch of my foot. And there are the times that one dog is closer than the other (which happens often with 2 on the left), so I choke up to the 3 foot knot and don’t have any drag on the ground (I hate muddy leads). It makes me feel like I have a bit more control when I am walking, though I know, if I really need a leash to walk the dogs, I don’t really have any control at all. The dogs humor me though.
