The Yellow Dog Project is an awareness and global mobilization to help people recognize a dog that needs space. By adding a small yellow ribbon to the leash, we hope to give owners and general public the ability to identify dogs that are not ready to say hi. This includes dogs that have had surgery, are in training, just need space, or are in a rehab/rescue program.
So, if you see a dog with a yellow ribbon on its leash, please give that dog some space. Also, if you have a dog that may need some space, please tie a yellow ribbon on the leash to help signify to others to stay back. And above all - spread the word! Let's get this movement going so that we can keep ourselves and our dogs healthy and happy while out in public!
