You may want to reconsider all these rings and handles as they can snag in a hearbeat and the rings will rip your hands up under the right circumstances.

You need to be able to feed that line through your hands or choke up on it. They sometimes sell them with a handle on the end as they can also be used as obedience long lines but I would cut that sucker off.

Maybe a knot near the end so you know when you are going to run out. I am not sure what you mean by "edge" since you are in Indiana.

Just google "trailing dog" and select images and you will see what I mean about how the lines are used - typically with a length of it running behind you which is very helpful if you are maneuvering around trees.

Seriously - a 30 foot lenght of static climbing rope or nylon webbing with the clasp secured by a figure 8 and a few strategically placed knots is "all good"
