Does your dog have anxieties whilst out on walks when he comes face to face with another dog? Are there aggression/reactive issues with other dogs? Or is your dog elderly and just can’t cope with younger dogs leaping around but still enjoys her walk? I bet you wish you could send out some kind of Bat Signal saying PLEASE KEEP YOUR DOG AWAY! If you have answered yes to any of the above then you haven’t heard of Yellow Dog UK.
Yellow Dog UK is a fantastic group that help support owners with dogs that have various anxieties of meeting other dogs on walks. This idea is to give other dog owners a signal from a distance, politely requesting that they keep their dog away. It’s a simple but effective idea where the dog in question, wears a yellow ribbon, a yellow bandana or a yellow vest which clearly states “I NEED SPACE”.
This idea is genius! This saves dogs and owners from getting stressed and anxious about potential confrontations and enabling them to have a much more enjoyable and relaxed walk. They are fantastic for a dog in training or rehabilitation, allowing the nervous dog to have space whilst getting used to meeting other dogs under careful control.
Pet Carers believe this project to be a great idea and would like to help spread the word of this amazing organisation. The more people become aware of Yellow Dog UK the more relaxing fun dogs can have during their precious exercise time.
If you go to the Yellow Dog UK website you can read more about it, there you can purchase an I NEED SPACE bandana or vest. They even have free yellow ribbons you can claim to get you started right away and they have plenty of doggie advice on hand for you too. #LoveThosePets
