What’s That Yellow Ribbon For?

Have you ever bumped into someone with a dog who has a yellow ribbon tied to her leash or is wearing a yellow bandana? In all liklihood, that’s not just a fashion statement. There’s a movement afoot to alert folks of pooches who need a little more space through this simple universal alert system.

What it Means

When you see a dog with a bit of yellow on their leash or around their neck you should assume this pooch needs a little more space. Don’t walk right up and put your hand out, or let your doggie lean over for a polite sniff. For whatever reason the dog with the yellow may not repsond well. Isn’t this awesome? What a simple solution!

Horse lovers may know that a red ribbon tied to an equine’s tail is meant to convey this dude’s a kicker! Beware – stay back! Now dogs have their own first-alert system: the yellow ribbon. This isn’t just gaining ground here in the states, either, in 45 other countries worldwide they’re getting on board with this idea too!

Dog fans love it!
