Have you heard of Yellow Dog UK? If your dog is nervous, unwell, or in need of space when out on the lead, then this new initiative is for you!
The Yellow Dog Project was created to bring awareness to dogs who need space while training, recovering from surgery, or being rehabilitated. If your dog needs space, tie a yellow ribbon to your dog's lead, or have him or her wear a yellow bandana around their collar.
The yellow ribbon or bandanna can be used for short term periods, eg whilst a dog is in training or on heat, or long term, for example if a dog is elderly and does not like young lively dogs bouncing around too close!
Take a look at this poster for more examples of when a yellow ribbon may be handy for you and your dog ...
