Yes, they're VERY easy to make.

Here's the one I made. I'm using climbing rope from Blue Ridge Mountain Sports - any store that sells climbing rope will custom cut lengths for you - and hardware from Lowe's. I'm using welded O rings and a boat / sailing snap. You want to go with hardware from Lowe's or Home Depot, rather than the sewing store, as you need welded or cast rings to hold a GSD. The kind they sell at the sewing store will pull apart.

did you hand sew the ends or machine sew them?

The ends are hand-sewn on this one, but if you have a heavy-duty sewing machine, you can also sew it on the machine.

The way this one is done is that I took some of the inside strands out at the ends, so they would lay flat around the hardware, and I used a lighter to melt the ends so they will not fray. Then I used the inside strands from parachute cord to do the actual sewing, melting the knots after securing everything.

I have used nylon chokes as backups for prongs BUT I actually prefer the chokes to be a few inches too long - otherwise they seem to get in the way of the prong correction. I don't want to do a douple correction. The dominant dog collars are made to fit tightly. So I'd just go with a regular nylon choke from the pet store that's a size or two too big.

I know this is an old thread but a search did not bring any recent threads on this.
I bought one when I bought my new prong...to use as a safety backup.
Anyway, I remember that is all we had in 1982 when I got my first GSD. They were sized in 1/2 inch increments, white, and of a "harder" cord.

Yesterday I took off the prong and trained with this, walked with this - and liked it. When did it fall out of favor as a training tool or be relegated to "choking" the "dominant" dog? It honestly did seem to have a calming effect. Beau is not handler agressive best as I can tell but too much on a prong does seem to ramp him up.
