Having a dog that gets a bit…we’ll call it “cranky”…around other dogs that invade her personal space, I was so glad to see this new yellow ribbon campaign via The Yellow Dog Project. As word gets out, it will be a quick visual indicator to others that a yellow ribbon on your dog’s leash/lead means that he/she needs a bit more personal space.
I previously posted about space etiquette for dogs, but dogs can need space for other reasons like being in training, being injured, etc.
So, if you have a dog that needs some space, for whatever reason, I urge you to tie a yellow ribbon on their leash. And spread the word.
