Yellow Dog UK - Some dogs need space!
If you see a dog with a yellow ribbon, bandana or similar on the leash or dog, this is a dog who needs some space. Please do not approach this dog or its people with the dog. They are indicating that their dog cannot be near other dogs. How close is too close? Only the dog or his people know, so maintain distance or give them time to move out of your way.
There are many reasons why a dog may need space:
Maybe he has health issues or is in training
She may be a rescue dog being rehabilitated
He may have had a bad experience with another dog or just not like the kind of friendly dogs who want to say 'Hi!'
In short, a yellow marker on a dog means it needs a little space.
Thank you! Those of us who own these dogs really appreciate you help and respect.
