The Yellow Dog Project: How to tell others your dog needs space
WASHINGTON, DC, May 3, 2013– The Yellow Dog Project recommends tying a yellow ribbon or other visible yellow item on the leash or collar of you dog to signal to other dog owners and the general public that your dog needs space.
In some cities and neighborhoods, it seems like most people have a dog, and while most city dogs are well socialized, some dogs require a little space when on their walks. The problem is that it may be difficult to spot these dogs at a glance. Enter The Yellow Dog Project, a simple idea that may turn out to be a brilliant step forward in doggie etiquette.
It is important to know that not all dogs wearing a yellow ribbon are aggressive.
