Yellow Dog

Have you seen dog walkers in the villages with yellow ribbons on their leads ? Do you know what this means ?

If you see a dog with a YELLOW ribbon, bandanna or similar on the leash or on the dog, this is a dog which needs some space.

From the Yellow Dog website :- (

There are many reasons why a dog may need space. It may…
have health issues
be a rescue dog being rehabilitated. The world can be a very scary place for these dogs.
have had a bad experience with another dog or is just not like the kind of friendly dogs which always want to say “Hi!”
be a bitch may be in heat
be in training
be very old and arthritic
be nervous or shy and other dogs cause it stress

In short, a yellow marker on a dog means it needs some space
