Does your dog need to be left alone when it's out and about? Just had an operation? On heat? A bit of a scaredy-dog? Being trained and doesn't need doggy company?
Well, what you need is a yellow ribbon (or just something yellow) to tie onto its lead, to show other dog owners that the dog needs to be given some space.
I hadn't heard about this initiative until this week, but I think it's a great idea. With raised awareness, dogs with special needs can be given that little extra bit of space they need, and those of us with excited dogs (puppies, for example!) will know to give them that space.
Watch out for those yellow ribbons!
